Our English-speaking tour driver will meet you at your hotel for this private Rome day tour to Viterbo. Visit it’s fascinating venues, and take a trip to Bagnaia and Bomarzo too!
Like most cities in the area, Viterbo was once an Etruscan village which became a Roman colony and finally a Roman colony. A point of interest is the 22nd Century’ Roman San Lorenzo Cathedral, which lies where the Etruscan citadel once was. In the 16th century, the area around the small bishopric of Viterbo, became the summer destination for a series of popes.
With the evolution through the centuries, the small medieval towns in this countryside were transformed by sumptuous palaces, villas, and gardens.
One of the greatest structural accomplishments of the Italian 1500s.
In Villa Lante, you will see the fountains of the moors, the two mansions (Gambara and Montalto), and a spectacular system of the fountains and water games and a beautiful park. The entire Villa (between the garden and park) occupies a surface of 22 hectares. The particularity of Lante Villa is shown by the magnificence of the garden, especially in the architectural work.
Bomarzo is a fantastic garden. It slips into the theatrical, symbol-laden traditions of the Baroque period. Unsurprisingly, after several centuries of neglect, it was rediscovered during the 1950s by surrealist artist, Salvador Dali, who found inspiration in the garden’s mixture of natural and bizarre design.
After a beautiful day in the Countryside, visiting the most magical, hidden locations, you’ll return to your requested location in Rome.
Your private tour driver will welcome you at your hotel in Rome at around 9:00am. Your tour will start with a ride in the Etruscan Region.
During the experience you’ll admire the Etruscan relics and well preserved historical sites. And why not enjoy a scrumptious meal in a local restaurant?
At the end of the tour, your driver will take you back to your hotel in Rome.
