Not Portugal.

There are lots of Roman bits but the wall in the second photo in my first post, and some other remains, are even older.

Italy?

It's been ages but somehow this reminds me of Fiesole.

You're absolutely right, Kathrin!

It is indeed Fiesole, up in the hills just 3 miles from Florence (15 minutes on the frequent buses), with excellent views over the city .

Fiesole was founded by the Etruscans in the 900s BC. It was an important Etruscan city and some of it still remains, including parts of the city walls. The Roman amphitheatre and baths have been excavated. It's been a sought-after location for centuries, with many large villas (some Medieval) as well as some lovely walks along its narrow lanes.

The theatre, and the location on a saddle between two hills, were the clues to me.

Please have a bit of patience, I'm off to search for a suitable photo.

Ooh, I definitely recognise that building - I remember sledging down a hill near there as a kid! Can't take a go though, so won't name it.
