I visited by car, but it would be a fairly easy walk from the center of Tuscania. The church is ancient and very simple, entrance by a voluntary donation. I loved the grounds as well. Architecture is beautiful and I enjoyed taking many detail shots.

The church is built on ruins of Roman and Etruscan origin. It was a victim of an earthquake in 1971 but has been restored. The history here is palpable. Enjoy this remarkable structure.

There are better Lazio hill towns in the area. Only stop by Tuscania if it's on the way to somewhere else.

If the weather is kind, this small but "perfectly formed" historic attraction is a delight with far reaching views across the countryside

the hilltop where Tuscania's most famous church is located tends to mystify people. Why does it stand there in majestic isolation, adjacent to a Bishop's residence that hasn't seen a bishop in centuries, surrounded by massive medieval towers? The basic answer is this. St. Peter's was built over a Roman temple which in turn was built over an Etruscan temple.... More

Like Lego?..... Ever wanted to see a town that's modelled totally out of porous rock like building blocks? Well, this town stands at the centre of marshland from where the entire tow,. churches, noble palazzos and the defensive walls of the city were sculpted from tufaceous rock. Tufa is a beautiful warm-coloured stone and is easily worked into all kinds... More

Don't leave the area of Tuscania without seeing this church and its surrounding buildings. The views from this height across the countryside are spectacular and over to Tuscania itself. You enter the church through a gate and then see a beautiful old arch and then turn the corner to see two lovely church towers and the stunning small church. Make... More

This is one of the highlights of Tuscania. The locals try to get married in this church if they can and it is well worth a visit.
