The Amelia Wall...these large blocks of squared stone  were  put together without any sort of cement during the 6th -4th Century BC.

We went down a dead end alley in Amelia and this woman was scaling this carp.  I asked if I could take her picture.  She was excited when I showed her the picture.

Tony just had a hunch from the map that Amelia would be a good location. It is a town with such a mixture of old roman parts just added to some of the other architecture. The streets are so narrow and only going up or down. I do not think there is one flat street. This wall around the city is impressive. From any part of the city you can see a wonderful view of mountains or the valley from on top of Amelia.
