On a remarkable bluff overlooking the sea, this enormous, ancient walled town is not to be missed. The architecture incorporates huge stones that have been fitted together as perfectly as the Incan construction at Macchu Picchu. At this lovely, rarely visited place, I once saw “Louisa will you marry me?” spelled out on the grass with petals of wild roses. Clearly, Etruscan passion is contagious.
