Walking in Tuscany

by Gillian Price

Amazon reader’s Review: “I did both the no. 29 “Sovana’s Sunken Roadways and Necropolises” and no. 30 “Sovana to Pitigliano the Old Way” walks and loved every minute of them. Italy is full of museums and archeological sites but this is ancient history out in the countryside! The sunken roads are fascinating gorges formed by the wheels of horse-driven vehicles that have worn ruts over the centuries in the soft rock called tufo. Sometimes these are up to 20 metres deep. We would never have discovered places so interesting and ‘off the beaten track’ without this book.”
