From Civitavecchia: the Dying City and Monster Park Tour

2. From Civitavecchia: the Dying City and Monster Park Tour

Civita di Bagnoregio is located in Tuscia on the border between Tuscany and Lazio. It is called the "dying city" because the land on which it stands is slowly falling away and will inevitably disappear when the final pieces crumble into the spectacular Valle dei Calanchi below. Knowing this, and knowing that nothing can be done to prevent it makes your visit all the more special, eternal and timeless. This is the feeling that makes it unique and marvelous to the people who have experienced the dying city. Connected to the rest of the world by a three hundred meter bridge, Civita di Bagnoregio is a charming village which will make you feel you are visiting a world that no longer exists. Made up of old houses, narrow streets and surrounded by beautiful landscapes, discover a walk through the scenes and stories of this place and choose the corner that sparks your intrigue the most. You can explore the Romanesque Arch at the entrance to Civita, the Renaissance Palace or the large Piazza (which is the site of donkey races on the first Sunday in June and the second Sunday of September and where all the remaining locals come to socialize in the evenings). After visit the dying city, you will head on to discover the Monster's Park situated in the town of Bomarzo. It is also called "Sacred Wood", and was designed by Prince Vicino Orsini and the great architect Pirro Ligorio in 1552. The park is unique and represents refined Italian style gardens that follow geometric and perspective rationality with embellishments such as wide terraces, fountains with water games and mannerist sculptures. You will also discover here eccentric wood blocks of peperino, emerging from the ground and sculpted into enigmatic figures of monsters, dragons, mythological subjects and exotic animals.

What people are saying about Lazio

Fun and very interesting alternative way to visit Rome outside the mainstream circuits. The charm of reaching the Imperial walls by bicycle, the ruins of the aqueducts, the route of the Appian Way among woods, streams and little-known corners is priceless. Great professionalism of the guides who illustrate the numerous highlights during the itinerary.

Great tour, beautiful and relaxing. It’s impressive how quickly you can leave the chaotic traffic behind you and get immersed in quiet parks and sceneries. Alberto, our guide, was fabulous. Took time to explain and take it all in. And he kept us safe! Thank you!!
