Explore the enchanting medieval city of Bolsena and have memorable experiences with all the activities you can enjoy along its lake. The town is located strategically between the regions of Lazio, Umbria and Tuscany. In the past centuries, it was a very important center of the Vatican State, above all, because of the Via Francigena, Italy’s most important pilgrimage route, which crosses the town of Bolsena right through. Just a couple of hours drive North of Rome, today it is the perfect starting point to visit the Tuscia area (a historical region which now coincides with the province of Viterbo) and to plan trips to Tuscany and Umbria.
End your itinerary by visiting the fascinating Civita di Bagnoregio, also known as the "dying town". The peculiarity of this ancient medieval village is its being positioned right on the top of a hill in the "Valle dei Calanchi" (Valley of the Badlands), whose base is reducing more and more due to the constant erosion of the rocks on which it was built and from landslides caused by the seismic phenomena that characterize the area.
