GROSSETO

GROSSETO was not an Etruscan city. It was founded in the Middle Ages, and its Cathedral (1294) is of that period, with its fine portal. In the Diocesan Museum there is a rare Madonna by Sassetta. The church of San Francisco, with a painted cross by Duccio di Buoninsegna, should be visited.

We leave Grosseto on the thirteenth day of our journey for VETULONIA (21 kms. - 13 mi.) on a hight hill with splendid views. Vetulonia was an important Etruscan city, from which the Romans took what was to become the symbol of their State, the fasces of the lictors. The town has a fine Parish Church and the Necropolis is 500 yards from the town itself. This Necropolis was discovered after long research in 1888. The road now winds down to Gavorrano and, 38 km. 23 3/4 mi,) from Vetulonia, to MASSA MARITTIMA
