What to do and see in Viterbo

what-to-do-and-see-in-viterbo

Art, history, culture, nature, wellness, folklore, shopping and good food. All this in Viterbo, capital of the province. Better known as the “City of Popes”, Viterbo and its surroundings offer a millennial journey that starts in the sixth century BC, the period in which was born the Etruscan necropolis of Castel d’Asso, and arrives at the Renaissance Villa Lante, elected in 2011, “Park Italy’s most beautiful “, passing through the medieval neighborhoods of the old town. In the central square of San Lorenzo there is the Cathedral and the Papal Palace, built as the residence of the popes since 1255 and remembered as the seat of the longest conclave in history. Another central square is that of Plebiscito with the Palazzo dei Priori, considered the center of city, where you can find the Art Gallery and the Palazzo del Podesta of medieval origin. For archeology lovers we recommend the National Archaeological Museum in Palazzo Vitelleschi, considered among the most important museums in Italy dedicated to the Etruscans. There is the opportunity to shop in the workshops scattered in the narrow streets of the center, and lovers of fine cuisine will find many local restaurants that offer authentic traditional dishes. In the rest of the province you can visit the town of Tuscania, which boasts an extraordinary Etruscan presence with the necropolis and the city of Bagnara with its famous Villa Lante, a splendid example of late Renaissance residence. For a stay in the Viterbo can not miss a stop at the Baths of the Popes for a refreshing bath in its warm and beneficial sulphurous waters or in the numerous natural springs scattered over the countryside surrounding the city.
