Best Places to Find Etruscan Ruins in Italy

Best Places to Find Etruscan Ruins in Italy | Italia Mia | Scoop.it

We visit Italy—especially Tuscany—for the delicious food and wine, and the splendid historical art and architecture from the Romans and the Renaissance.  The Italian countryside holds many treasures as well: ancient ruins from the mysterious Etruscans, the rulers of Italy before the Romans.  Some of these well-preserved city walls and burial tombs date back to the 7thcentury B.C.  Step back in time and see the jewelry, bronzes, and other artifacts from this still-undiscovered civilization at archaeological museums throughout Tuscany.

For some of the best places to find Etruscan ruins, visit these villages. [...]

Cycling through Italy's Chianti region

With his bronzed skin and dapper red loafers, the manager of the Dievole Winery has the look of a man who doesn’t fall off bicycles. “A pleasant ride?” he asks, as I slump in a chair and dab at my grazes.

Lucca, Italy: Tuscan taste of history, fine food and Puccini

Lucca, Italy: Tuscan taste of history, fine food and Puccini | Italia Mia | Scoop.it

One of the most scenic places to dine is San Colombano, an indoor-outdoor restaurant that sits on the city wall, on a particularly wide, tree-lined section, and incorporates some of its features (one of the restaurant’s windows takes up the space once occupied by a cannon). With views over the rooftops and out towards the stately cathedral, you can opt for cake and coffee at the cafe on one side of the entrance, or a meal at the restaurant on the other. The expansive menu of pizzas, calzone, salads and pasta reveals top quality food for a lot less than you’d pay in Australia. [...]
