Marino gave me a few recommendations of some good Ceramic Museums. The first one was about an hour bike ride up the hill from Lake Bolsena in the town of Valentano. This is another hilltop town...and of course the ceramic museum was on top of the hill. We had to ask a man at his desk about how to get into the museum. He said that he would open it up for us. There were two floors in an ancient building that house the collection of Ceramics from the Farnese Family from Valentano. We went a longer way to Viterbo to see the town Tusconia. We got to Vitberbo in time to find our B&B and to explore the old part of the town.
