Chiusi

Charming Chiusi

Chiusi is a quiet village. It's a great place to escape the hustle of the larger cities and enjoy a leisurely walk to take-in the beautiful architecture of this city.

There is also a well-respected museum here so if you're interested in learning more about the Etruscan way of life, you won't want to miss it!

Suggested Stay:

A day trip.

Getting To Chiusi:

We arrived via car from our villa stay in Sant'Albino. Chiusi is located very close to the A1 Autostrada about a 30 minute drive from beautiful Montepulciano and 45 minutes from Cortona.

Must See & Do:

The Etruscan Museum - Our visit to Chiusi was centered on a visit to this museum and we spent a couple of hours marveling at beautiful urns, pottery, sculptures, jewelry and mosaic works of art.

Want More Chiusi?

Of course you do! Have a look at more pictures of Chiusi here on FTLOI Flickr.

Our Next Stop?

Pienza. Twice is nice indeed when it's another trip to this favorite hilltop town. A return visit gave new views and a deeper understanding of Pienza. The newest post is coming soon and you can see my first here.
