So, we drove north and are now in Tuscany. We stopped at Orvieto, which is an Italian Hill Town. There are many hill towns in Tuscany and Umbria, particularly the former. They were built during the middle ages as defensive structures due to the constant small time warfare and raiding. So, this massive Roman Empire is reduced to sibling squabbling. But there are attractive sights left for us.
In Orvieto, the church is rated by some as the most beautiful ...

As a result Assisi and the fort itself have stunning 360 deg views of the Umbrian landscape, and would have been an imposing structure for an invading army. We climbed the two watch towers, which are connected by a 105 metre tunnel inside the wall, and standing at 500 metres above sea level, where I could easily see the horizon 40 kms away, the views were breathtaking.

... thing that is neat about driving through Europe is all theses old castles on mountain tops. Makes for a beautiful view. The tunnel was pretty neat too. There's a toll booth which not only do you pay at but you get instructions for driving through the tunnel. There's certain distances to keep between cars, what to do in a case of a emergency and of course the radio station you could listen to updates about the tunnel. It was a very nice drive back and a great trip!
