Yesterday, Allyson and I went to Viterbo with our friends Lillian and William. Viterbo is a lovely town in the mountains about 90 minutes from Rome. Its most famous for being the home of several popes in the thirteenth century, including four who are buried there (although nobody is exactly sure where one of them is buried). The town has a pretty amazing medieval section, but the best part was that it was practically deserted. Where do the Italians go in August? Underground tunnels? Caves in the mountains?
