Full-Day Private Tour to Saturnia Bath and Montemerano Village From Rome

In this tour, you will have a different experience when you get the chance to swim in Saturnia Bath and visiting one of the most beautiful cities in Italy Pitigliano The region surrounding Pitigliano is typical of the Maremma and the territory ranges from the border with the Lazio region up to the Volsini mountain range, a typical tuff area. The city, in fact, borders to the north with the municipality of Sorano, to the south-east with the Lazio region and, in particular, with the municipalities of Farnese, Ischia di Castro, Latera, and Valentano, while to the west we find the town of Manciano.

So hard to describe this town clinging to the cliff face of the tuffaceous rock,there are just so many lane & viccolos to explore a photographers heaven. This is a town not to be missed although it is steep the historical centre is an easy walk

We used Pitigliano as a base to visit Soranno Tombs and Sovanna. Very pretty and quiet. There is a Coop Supermarket in the main town with good produce and we used supplies from here to balance our eating out- so all in all a lovely stay.

It is view from the road, it is a view from inside, I was pleasantly surprised. Walk the streets and soak the atmosphere of medieval times.

This city and several surrounding smaller towns are located in an area characterised by the "tufo" light brown volcanic rock which is used ubiquitously for all the buildings. The landscape is marked by many sheer, smooth faced cliffs which quite improbably have openings high up which have been created for various purposes including habitation and as dovecotes for homing pigeons which were once used as postmen. Despite the steepness of the cliffs the old "borgo" of this town, which is entirely pedestrianised once you have passed into the old quarter, has to be accessed by going down a steep staircase which has been cut through solid rock. Once down at this lower level you find yourself in a labyrinth of pathways with houses in most improbable positions and amongst them are a couple of restaurants, one of which has a terrace overlooking the abyss which is the valley below the town. Back in the old quarter there are two parallel streets running along the ridge of the cliff leading at the far end to an enormous structure which has now been converted into an exhibition space. Walls and railings are in abundance to stop you falling off the edge of the cliff into the valley hundreds of feet below but still you periodically come across a building which has somehow been constructed below these ramparts. Finally you climb up more steps and find yourself on a flat paved roof which is the highest point of the town and which affords a fabulous view of the surrounding town and countryside.
