There are about 500 citizens, and half that many friendly cats, who live in Civitella Marittima. The city sits up on a hill in the heart of Tuscany. There is a post office, a small clinic, a school, 2 bakeries, 2 cafés, 1 butcher, a small store, and 1 restaurant. Except for the restaurant and cafés, most businesses close at 12:30. The post office is open for a few hours 3 days a week.
Children play in the streets and call to us, “Ciao!” Out for an evening walk, people smile and say, “Buona Sera”. We feel welcome.
Here is our little Casina di Rosa.
