Tuscania (Lazio)

Tuscania is a town and comune in the province of Viterbo, Lazio Region, Italy. Until the late 19th century the town was known as Toscanella. The main monument of the city is the Church of San Pietro, built in Lombard-Romanesque style, begun in the 8th century and renovated in the 11th-12th centuries. The interior has a nave and two aisles divided by low columns and pilasters incorporating half-columns, with antique and mediaeval capitals. On February 6, 1971 an earthquake caused 31 deaths. The town has been meticulously restored since, and the historic quarter is substantial, completely surrounded by the medieval city walls that offer excellent views over the surrounding countryside and the church of St Peter.

@Spott2940 asks:

We will be traveling to Rome in late April and will be spending 3 months in Italy in 2021.  We would love to meet someone for coffee while we are in Rome just to talk about life in Italy as an expat.  We are considering moving to Italy and are doing our research.  Anyone interested in meeting up?
