Tuscany

 
Tuscany Tuscany, Toscana in Italian, is the best known Italian province and the name alone evokes an image of sun, dolce vita and picturesque little towns. This image is quite correct, actually.

Spoleto

 
Spoleto This is an outstanding city, built on a hill with remains from Roman times [including a first century house and an amphitheatre] but with the general appearance of a mediaeval town, once you have gone from the station into the centre. There is a bus if you wish. The cathedral square is as good and atmospheric as any in Italy and at the top of the town there is a real treat. Just on the far side is an amazing bridge, the Ponte delle Torre, 755 feet long and 262 feet high [230 by 80 metres], built in the 14th century on the basis of a Roman aqueduct! Getting from the train station to the visitor's center in town was a cheap and easy bus ride. We stayed at a clean hotel with an incredibly large bathroom for a 3 st...

Montechiarugolo

 
Montechiarugolo The original structure of this castle situated in the valley of the river Enza dates back to the XIIth century. The noble family of the Sanvitale rules it incontestably to 1313, when the Guelph armies conquers and almost destroys it. After that, between the XV and the XVI century, it sees an interminable series of conflicts: the pope, the emperor and powerful families like the Visconti and the Este fight for its possession with histories of conspiracy and betrayals. Nevertheless the fortress grows again every time out of its ruins so that today we can enjoy today its extremely suggestive and terrible beauty charged with its human and historical vicissitudes....
