Thursday, June 10, 2004 - Cortona to Todi
We rode along the lake to Passignano, then to Marsciano and finally up to Todi
The Renaissance Church of the Consolazione stands alone outside the town walls.
In Piazza del Popolo, at the
top of the hill are the Duomo, the Palazzo del Priori and the enormous Gothic
Palazzo del Popolo with a portico on the ground floor, leading by an outside
staircase to the Palazzo del Capitano.
Todi is surrounded by three more or less complete
concentric walls: the outermost is medieval, the middle wall is
Roman, and the innermost
is recognizable as partly Etruscan.
