Pitigliano has an unmistakable skyline perched high atop a volcanic tufa ridge. For several hundred years Pitigliano was a frontier town between the Grand Duchy of Tuscany and, to the south, the Papal States. For this reason, the town was home to a flourishing and long-lived Jewish community, mostly made up of people fleeing from Rome during the Counterreformation persecutions. Pitigliano and its area were inhabited in Etruscan times but the first written mention of it dates only to 1061.
Later today we'll head towards Rome, stopping along the way (time permitting) for a visit to the ancient seaport of Civitavecchia. Our tour ends in the evening with a farewell dinner at our hotel near Rome’s Leonardo da Vinci Airport. An early morning shuttle from the hotel to the terminals is included in the trip pricing. Please allow 3 hours for check in and security clearance.
