  • Parco Archeologico del Sodo – Etruskische site

    Deze plek is voor de hardcore fans van de Etruskische cultuur. De vlaktes rondom Cortona zijn bezaaid met eeuwenoude tombes. Aan de voet van de heuvel toont een archeologisch park, het Parco Archeologico del Sodo, de Etruskische Sodo-graven, waaronder een gebeeldhouwd offeraltaar. De inhoud van veel van deze graven bevindt zich in het Museo dell’Accademia Etrusca maar de originele plaats is hier te vinden. De zogenaamde ‘Meloni’ zijn oude Etruskische tumuli die gevonden zijn in het Sodo-gebied, net buiten Cortona. Tussen de 8e en 4e eeuw voor Christus gedijde ‘Etruria Propria’ als een confederatie van 12 stadsstaten in Centraal-Italië. Noord-Etrurië, gelijk aan wat nu Toscane is, bestond uit Cortona, Arezzo, Chiusi, Populonia, Vetulonia en Volterra. Om het Archeologische Park goed te kunnen begrijpen, kun je het gebied het beste met een gids bezoeken of een weekendtour van een halve dagboeken via het Museo dell’Accademia Etrusca.

Badia a Passignano Visit and Chianti Tasting Experience

Tucked into the enchanting hills of Chianti is an ancient Benedictine Abbey, la Badia a Passignano. Surrounded by a sacred and spiritual atmosphere, the abbey reflects the presence of Florence and the strong influence of the Medici, who summoned famous artists to decorate the complex. The monks residing at the abbey promoted scientific research through vine growing, which is still one of the main activities in Chianti. A tour of the abbey is followed (or preceded in the case of afternoon visits) by a visit to a winery for a wine tasting.
