A wonderful and relaxing retreat at countryside, in the outskirts of Rome north
Where is it?
The immediate area is the medieval quarter of the walled city of Viterbo. We live Via San Pellegrino which is the main artery through the historical centre. Small artisans shops, antique shops line this main street, with little arches overhead, and a fountain in every square in the town. Viterbo is famous for itâs spindle fountains.
The is a Papal Palace and Cathedral. Three Popes lived in Viterbo when the political situation was too dangerous in Rome. The is also the fantastic Thermal Spa, Terme Dei Papi, where the Popes took the waters. It is beautiful and has a great swimming pool which you can use without taking a treatment.
To the north is Lake Bolesna with the town, where you can hire a boat, walk around the lakeside, or just sunbathe.
To the south you will find Lakes Vico and Bracciano and also lake Trasimeno. All are suitable for bathing. To the west is the Mediterranean sea. We hired a car and took a day trip to the Adriatic coast.
There is so much you can do from Viterbo. The train leaves every hour from Rome and takes about an hour and fifteen minutes to get to St. Peters. A different train will take you to Florence. There are many amazing small cities you can visit.
Viterbo is a fantastic base for day trips.
