The Hill Towns of Italy

Nature volume 70, page 268 (21 July 1904) | Download Citation



THE majority of English people who visit Italy confine their attention to large towns such as Florence, Rome, Naples and Venice. The mediæval towns of Etruria and Umbria constitute practically a terra incognita to the ordinary tourist. The author has done useful work in directing attention to a district full of historic associations, and the picturesque glimpses which he has given us both of towns and country may well tempt those who have the time and opportunity to go and visit the district themselves.
