Civita di Bagnoregio
Located on the top of a hill, this fabulous and unique town can only be reached on foot by crossing a bridge built in the mid-1900s.
Civita di Bagnoregio is called “The dying city” due to its isolation and the continuous and slow erosion of the hill on which it rests.
It was founded 2500 years ago by the Etruscans in one of the oldest Italian roads, joining the Tiber (then a great navigation route) and Lake Bolsena, today it represents one of the most evocative and enchanted places in Central Italy.

In the village, the few families who still resist living there and the unreal landscape of the clayey gullies that surround the town, make Civita a unique place, sunny and twilight at the same time, alive and ghostly, depending on the mood of the beholder. from the spectacular Belvedere opposite.

Bonaventura and the silver case in the shape of a blessing arm in which the relics of the Saint are preserved and the Renaissance palaces of the Colesanti, the Bocca and the Alemanni impose themselves on the small streets lined with the typical external stairs of the houses called “profferli”.
