Ponte a Rigo to Acquapendente 24k Lazio at Lastio

Another bright sunny morning and we set off among rolling hills and fields of corn and maize. Mount Amiati dominates the view to our right and the tower of Radicofani that we climbed up to yesterday slowly disappears from view behind us.
At some point we cross into Lazio, the province of Rome and see the first cows of our trip.
It takes us most of the morning and a climb to reach Proceno, an Etruscan town, allegedly founded by their legendary king, Lara Porsenna. It is another long street of dark stone houses with a fortress on the top.
We sit in the main square and a man rides up on a horse, dismounts, downs the customary expresso and sets off again whilst consulting his phone.
We make it up a steep climb to Acquapendente in time to meet Ann and Jane off the bus. After a late lunch at a bar in the main square, we set off up a another hill to a pleasant cloistered Ostello and settle ourselves in.
