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...More

Enjoyable visit. Won't take too long, but the architecture and mosaics were worth seeing. Limited parking at the top of the hill. Worth 30-45 min.

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.

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