double celebration we celebrated with our last 2 bottles of pink champagne and opened the Fois gras we had bought in France! We enjoyed this pissnic as the sun went down and we were blessed with a wonderful sunset that kept going and going. Once the sun went down we drank in the views of the old town which lit up at night.
We really wanted a sleep in this morning as our heads were a little fuzzy from all the bubbles of last night but it was not to be. A wander around the old town and its tiny Jewish ghetto - there was a population of around 400 Jews living here in the 16th century after all were banned from Rome by Pope Pius IV.
Some of the best Etruscans ruins from 6BC were in the area so we hiked out of town to check them out. Mostly they consisted of carved out roads through the forested hills. There was also an ancient fountain. Not too exciting to look at but the walk itslelf was very nice :)
