Another explore.  This time to the ancient city of Montone.  Perched high on a hilltop and built inside an ancient fortification, Montone is a small village with some great restaurants.

Entering Montone

I parked the Fiat Chinquacento and walked up into the old fortress ruin and met this statue. It's another war memorial "To those fallen in war" with amazing details cast in bronze.

Looking over the fortress walls at the mountains and valley below.
I walked through the church and stopped to take this picture.  It's hard to see, but there is a portal with beautiful art work surrounding it.  This portal allows light to shine down on the alter.

Cool portal to the "romantic" rose garden seating...

Momma mia, more steps!  Well at least you could drive up these too.
A most delicious repast at the Erba Luna

The view from the outdoor dining area...

A phone booth!

Perhaps the most beautiful thing I've seen in a while... just off the statue courtyard and down some twisty spirally steps towards Erba Luna and I noticed this single red rose that reminded me of a lot of things!
