Chiusi Lake, Tuscany
A bike ride and a lunch by the lake: discovering Chiusi and its surroundings
Pedaling your way to discover the Etruscan cultural and gastronomic heritage

I have been to Tuscany many times already, yet I never fail to be amazed at every new facet I discover of that beautiful region every time I go back.
Chiusi and its surroundings were no exceptions to that rule. Located south-east of Tuscany, at the border with Umbria, Chiusi is a beautiful little town perched on a hill, with a rich Etruscan heritage. Indeed, the city reportedly was one of the first and most important Etruscan cities back in the 6th century BC. Extensive excavation works in and around the city have brought to light a large collection of vases, terracotta potteries, sarcophagus but also large and well-preserved tombs part of a big necropolis found in Poggio Renzo, just outside Chiusi.
