Todi in Umbria, Italy - history and architecture

Todi was important to both Etruscans and Romans and is the location of several interesting Gothic and renaissance buildings, including the 11 C cathedral and 13 C palazzi. Its triple walls are still easily discerned. The innermost is Etruscan, the middle wall is Roman, and the outside wall dates from the 6 C or 7 C. Todi’s most striking church is the domed Renaissance Church of Santa Maria della Consolazione beautifully located just outside the city walls.
