The first view of this hilltop town takes ones breath away. Quite a steep suspended walkway to get to the top but well worth the trip.
That was my impression as we walked across the bridge and walked up the steep incline to this early medieval town on a misty day in early October. (There is a small fee to cross the bridge.) This is a exceptionally worthwhile site near Orvieto. You need not schedule more than a half a day to visit, photograph and perhaps... More
Do not miss visiting this beautiful clifftop town. The walk as you approach is work every steep pace.
If you liked Pitigliano, you should like Civita .. and vice versa. Two amazing Etruuscan cities that seem to be from another world. Civita is very small, so do not expect to tour it for a day. Go for the view, to relax, to take a glass of wine and maybe visit something else during your journey.
Thank you Tripadvisor reviewers for alerting me to this place. The setting is just breathtaking. There's an easy walk over the footbridge with a bit of an incline, which caused some unfit people to puff and pant a bit! The little town on this lump of tufa is quaint but there are more stunning towns to visit in Umbria, but... More
My husband, six year old grandson and I made the trip to Civita di Bagnoregio...everyone else in our family of eight decided to relax for the day in our lovely rented villa in Torre Alfina. What a mistake they made! This place is out of this world...almost surreal. Viewing the bridge and town from Bagnoregio is breathtaking. My grandson could... More
How do explain this little town on mountain, with only long bridge to get there. Beautiful place to visit. The flowers in front of each home and restaurant were amazing. This town dates back to I believe 600 AD. But, unfortunately the back side of the town is falling down. Being wash down the mountain. Bought some beautiful pottery there.... More
We aimed to visit Viterbo and I decided to check what exactly worth seeing there. Obviously Civita was the top-rated place, decpite it's not exactly in the city itself. The trick is that most people reviewing here went there by their cars, and we didn't have one, so we made a hell of a planning and research on how to... More
We arrived early in the day, and left the car behind in Bagnoregio. Walking across the walkway and up to the city really took my breath away. Any traveller however experienced, will find this place worthwhile visiting. The surrounding landscape a feast for all interested in geology as well as lovers of dramatic scenery. The city itself - hard to... More
Our hotel-keeper in Orvieto recommended a visit to this small town, one we had not heard of and that was not listed in our guidebooks. I checked it out on TripAdvisor, and looked for it on Google Earth, and we set off to find it, just south of Orvieto. What an amazing place! We had heard the reference to the... More
