6 things to do

All Places Italy

La Sfinge

The hotel is located in the old quarter of the hilltop town. The rooms are quiet, and some may have a view of the valley. There is no breakfast service but the bar Caffè Venezia is nearby. The rooms come with a kettle and a basket with a complimentary selection of instant coffee and tea. The hotel is close to bus stops.

San Secondiano Cathedral

The cathedral is the oldest in all of Tuscany (6th Century), although the architecture is predominantly Romanesque. A small museum next door has a few beautiful choir books. The bell tower outside is of medieval construction.

La Solita Zuppa

Via Porsena 21. Moderately expensive, but one of the best dining experiences in Southern Tuscany. The ''Cinghiale in salmi'' is particularly good but ask the owner (he is almost always there) for a recommendation.

National Archaeological Museum

Chiusi was a major Etruscan center and this museum has numerous Etruscan artifacts (many urns!), many of which display the Greek influence on the Etruscans. A nice way to spend twenty minutes.

The Labyrinth

Etruscan tunnels, probably used for water supply and drainage. These are quite extensive and run under the city. Guided tours start from the Cathedral. Entry Fee.

Via Arunte 12. Advertised as Etruscan Cuisine, Zaira is good value for hearty fare. Children welcome.
