    Stay in Sovana at Sovana hotel and resort and go to sorano for vie cave walk. Visit Saturnia therme and Mulino cascate too. Oh, on second thoughts, don't bother. Dont want everywhere packed when we return for lovely stay.

    Went for a short tour of the winery and wine tasting while on a day tour around the region. Stefano was very friendly and welcoming, and the wine tasting was wonderful. The olive oil was tasty, the marmalade was delicious, and the wild boar salami was especially unforgettable; all these were perfect accompaniments to the wines we tried.

    A truly unique experience, wandering through the underground chambers that once made up part of the Jewish ghetto - present since renaissance times, and ending with the fabulously restored synagogue. Good signs in English explaining various Jewish rituals, holidays and traditions, but most of them a bit generic - more interpretation could be added that is specific to Pitigliano and the history of its Jewish population, the persecution and racial laws, the role of the local Catholic community hiding people during fascism, etc.

    This area is little known territory that borders with Tuscany and Lazio north of Lago di Bolsena in what was a scenic landscape for me when I was living in Capodimonte as part off excursion for exploring the central part of Italy many years ago long before the range of calendar dates suitable for indicating the time of my visit were made available for completing this review. One of the principal Italian names that had stuck with me during my learning of that language was "Orsini". It was connected with a local jazz performer. But the name rang pure Italian sounds for me. So I stayed with it. Certain Italian names had a staying power with me like "Scuteri" and "Sebastiana". I came across a chance to travel to this location almost by good luck. I was not going to pass up a chance to learn about it. I had brought with me to Italy three college years of study of Italian and I was proud of myself. This place was off the beaten track for most tourists and somewhat out of the way but it did attract me. Small town with a fortress. I did not really want to listen to somebody speak English as a tour guide so I started off by walking around by myself. Well worth my time and money spent in getting there. Design of the building was very interesting. I learned much additional history. I do recommend that you go see this museum as there was some information about the earlier times in Pitigliano. Maybe it was a study of castle construction. But it was more than that for me. This was close to southern Tuscany and I was motivated to learn about the geography. I did have to learn about that form of architecture. Once again I looked for and kept reading material written in Italian. I believe that younger children night not have a way to connect with this place so it might be wise to leave them elsewhere. As for adolescents - depending on their cultural connection with the Italian language, their knowledge of Tuscany and Lazio and Italian history - they might be mature enough to fully appreciate and value a visit here. For me it was serious business to come here. Do not wander through the grounds or the fortress munching on two ham sandwiches or drinking a milk shake. Be more respectful. Do not bring your pet dog. This was not an amusement park for me. Be sure to go inside and remain there long enough to study the construction and design. "Italian studies" was once an energetic area of study at larger universities. Now it has been replaced by other degree programs. Adults with a strong desire to learn about fortress architecture and construction will do themselves a favor by coming here. This a part of the Italian national cultural heritage.

    This is the oldest church in Pitigliano. There is a great deal of spiritual history in this small town.

    You will notice/see the church even before you arrive in Pitigliano. Once you arrive in the city you will notice the ever present bells ringing. It's a beautiful small cathedral in a very beautiful little city. Worth your visit.

    Well laid out and well labelled in Italian and English this small museum contains some real gems. Particularly interesting (although not in use the day we visited) was the conservation laboratory which could be viewed from a couple of the galleries. Fantastic views across the valley from some of the windows which were open to catch a blissfully cool breeze. The only downside - no photography allowed.

    Such a charming place and gets that fine balance between being too local and too touristy. We were in the town during the winter off season and it was still very much worth a visit. Great place.

    This is a beautiful little statue located on one side of the Piazza (the main Piazza in Pitigliano). Easy to find. There is also a beautiful view from this location.

    I spent a very nice day visiting the Etruscan site and enjoying the really helpful support for all my children offered for the really kind and family friendly worker at the museum. I could chill out under the oak trees, have lunch in the nice picnic area and visit the amazing Etruscan site!
    Bring some good shoes and a baby carrier ! Not suitable for strollers!

    This is a little and unpretentious church not that interesting historically and architecturally but the view of the town and the valley from there is breathtaking.

    If you are interested in finding out Pitigliano as well as the surrounding area then stop by the tourist office. They are very helpful and have lots of useful information.
