Day 3: From VETRALLA to SUTRI
Continuing in the green landscape of Lazio you reach Sutri, a small city full of attractions. The Roman amphitheater, completely excavated in the tuff, is a must. Choose whether to sit in the stands or conquer the scene, but when leaving, remember to sign the visitors' register: the caretaker cares a lot, and if present he will invite you to do so. Then head to the church of Santa Maria del Parto, whose tuff walls are decorated with well-preserved frescoes. Search among the images for the group of pilgrims, portrayed in prayer with their sticks in their hands.
