Bolsena Lake ( approx 10 minutes ) The charming town of Bolsena has stretches of beach along which there is an avenue leading to the port. This is one of the most prestigious locations in Tuscia. This farming and tourist town not only has major environmental resources, but also highly interesting works of art.
The center of Bolsena has places of cultural interest to be seen, such as the Palazzo di Tiberio Crispo (today Palazzo del Drago), the splendid 16th century palace; the fountain of San Rocco commissioned by Giovanni de’ Medici, and various ecclesiastical buildings. The promontory with its tufa stone buildings overlooking Lake Bolsena is called the “Castle Quarter” and is an intact medieval area.
Nearest Coast with lovely Beach at Tarquinnia
Approx 50 km / 45 minutes by car – The historical centre here is also worth a visit.
Monte Argentario: Porto Santo Stefano, Porto Ercole and Orbetello are three towns on the Monte Argentario peninsula which conserve reminders of their 150 years (1557-1707) as a Spanish enclave or presidio. A must see!!
Ski-ing ( dependent on season ) Approx 90 km / 1.5 hours drive to Monte Amiata – why not call in to see the Abbey at Abbadia San Salvatore or pay a visit to the Banfi Wine Estate and shop also in the same area.
Art & Historical Cities :
* Bolsena- Approx 15 km / 15 minutes by car
* Civita di Bagnoregio- 11 km/ 15 minutes by car One of the most beautiful old towns in Italy, it is also disappearing. Civita di Bagnoregio, a quarter of the Municipality of Bagnoregio, is located on a tufa rock hill and can be reached only by crossing a pedestrian bridge.
Called the “dying city” by Bonaventura Tecchi, who was born here, Civita di Bagnoregio risks disappearing because the tufa hill where it is located is being eroded at the base by the continuous action of the two streams in the valleys below as well as by the effect of rain and wind.
* Orvieto- Approx 30 km / 35 minutes by car is a town perched on top of a 600-foot plateau of volcanic rock. It’s fun to park below and take the funicular to the top, imagining what’s in store.
Once in the main square, you’ll face the brilliant signature of the town, the astounding golden façade of its cathedral, soaring seven stories high. The Gothic façade of the Orvieto Cathedral is one of the great masterpieces of the Late Middle Ages.
* Capodimonte/Marta We can visit the town centre on a hill overlooking Lake Bolsena, with its corners, little squares, the arches of the gates in the city walls, and the defensive and watchtowers merged into the walls of the houses. On the lanes in the old quarter leading to the belvedere, we can see the carved stones of architraves and the arches of windows and doors, decorated by coats of arms, symbols and inscriptions
The hill dominating the town is the site of the church and former monastery of Madonna del Monte. Every year on 14 May, the Barabbata Festival is held and the Shrine, one of the most suggestive and unusual in the panorama of local traditions. We can also visit the Church of Madonna del Castagno, patroness of the carters, who used to celebrate their festival here.
* Viterbo – Approx 15 km / 15 minutes by car: Strategically located on the Via Cassia, Viterbo is a heart of stone willing to open up to visitors who fall under the enchantment of the medieval atmospheres, which tell “tales of knights, arms and love” as well as the Machiavellian strategies of the popes. Here, in 1272, before the altar of the Gesù church, Henry of Almain was savagely killed. This was described by Dante in the Inferno. This is the birthplace of the legends of St. Rose, the young girl who became the symbol of the struggle of the Guelphs against the imperial attempts to gain hegemony.Along the streets of the city centre we can appreciate Romanesque churches like Santa Maria Nuova, one of the oldest in Viterbo, San Sisto and many others.
The “City of the Popes” is dotted with innumerable fountains. Tall and impressive, with their column-like shape, they had a fundamental public function. They are located in the squares of the city, as if to quench the thirst of the stones as well. The most beautiful fountains are the ones in Piazza della Morte (1200), Piazza Fontana Grande (1206), Piazza San Faustino (1251), Piazza della Rocca (16th century), Piazza delle Erbe (1621), Piazza del Gesù (17th century) and Piano Scarano (1367).
Outside the walls, the necropolis of Castel d’Asso and the city of Ferento testify to the presence of the Etruscans and the Romans, the two civilisations from which Viterbo originated. There are various smaller towns near the city such as La Quercia, Bagnaia, S. Martino al Cimino, Tobia, Roccalvecce, Grotte Santo Stefano and Montecalvello. These towns of historical interest have villas, churches, palaces and gardens of extraordinary artistic quality.
* Ferento- 6 km /10 km by car : Just a few kilometers from Viterbo is a highly interesting archaeological site: Ferento, first an Etruscan settlement, then an urban, political, and commercial center of Ancient Rome.
In some ways, this site answers the riddle as to the origins of Viterbo, whose urban fabric shows no significant traces of its Etruscan founding or of Roman civilization.
Most of the statues unearthed in the excavations are on display at Viterbo’s City Museum, along with other invaluable finds. The theater's excellent state of conservation allows live performances and concerts to be scheduled in the summertime, all staged in a splendid setting of archaeology and nature.
Macchina di Santa Rosa: The transport of the Macchina dates back to the 1258. The Macchina of Santa Rosa is a 30 meter high tower, which is rebuilt every year in the months of July and August in honor of Saint Rose of Viterbo. Every year on the evening of the 3rd September 100 men called “Facchini di Santa Rosa” (porters of Saint Rose) hoist the Macchina and carry it through the very narrow streets and squares of the medieval town center. The whole route is approx. 1 km
* Bullicame: The province of Viterbo is characterized by the presence of various thermal springs.
The most famous of these for its mythological and literary characteristics as well as its therapeutic properties is Bullicame which provides water to the Terme dei Papi and Terme Salus-Pianeta Benessere, and then there is the free springs of the Pozze di SanSisto and the historical spring of the Terme di Orte.
The hyperthermal waters flow from the Bullicame spring in a large quantity and at a temperature of 58 °C and this spring also provides the water for a huge pool measuring over 2,000m2 found at the famous Terme dei Papi. These waters which differ in composition and application allow for a large number and variety of therapeutic uses.
The Pozze di San Sisto are found on the slopes of the Cimini mountains and are extremely popular with lovers of free thermal springs. The waters in question are sulphate-carbonic and flow at high temperatures, making them ideal for dermatological, respiratory and loco motor disorders.
The thermo-mineral waters of the Terme di Orte have been known since ancient times for their therapeutic properties, so much so that they were used as much for water cures as for baths. Nowadays, the Terme di Orte have become a highly popular thermal center with two large pools of sulfuric water boasting a temperature of 30 °C.

- Lake Bolsena Montefiascone is the largest town around the Lake Bolsena. As it is located on the top of the Volsinian hills 300 meter above the lake, it is some kind of the most beautiful „balcony“ overlooking the lake Bolsena Est! Est! Est! Montefiascone is famous for its wine industry, here the world famous Est!Est!Est! is produced. According to local lore, the German Baron J.Fugger, who had a penchant for good wine, ordered his butler to mark the doors of taverns, which serve good wine with the word „Est“. In Montefiascone, he found such a delicious wine that he wrote the word „Est“ three times on the door of the tavern. Fugger shared this opinion and drank so much wine that he died in 1113. The annually wine fair in honor of him is a great opportunity to enjoy this delicious wine. The Cathedral: Montefiascine's Cathedral boosts the third largest dome in Italy, is one of the earliest structures by Michele Sanmicheli. The Cathedral was a ruin in 1330 and took three centuries to get rebuild. The church of Santa Maria delle Grazie, also by Sanmicheli. The church of San Flaviano (build in 1032) repaired and enlarged in the Gothic style late in 14th century, a curious double church of importance in the history of architecture. Architectural Museum of Antonio da Sangallo the Younger is housed on the ground floor of the Castle of the Popes. His work is visible in Montefiascone, where he build the church of S. Mary Montedoro and restored the fortress of the Popes. Corpus Domini: Corpus Domini, also known as the “Miracle of Bolsena” occurred in 1263 when a German priest named Peter of Prague stopped in the lakeside town of Bolsena to hold mass above the tomb of Santa Cristina while on a pilgrimage to Rome. Peter however doubted the transubstantiation, but as he readied himself to give communion the bread turned blood red; the liquid then spilled onto the white altar cloth, forming a stain that resembled the profile of Jesus, as well as the onto the marble floor and into the grotto of St. Christina, where the stain can still be seen today. Corpus Domini takes place 9 weeks after Easter, in almost every city and town in Italy. The traditional celebration begins with elaborately designed religious objects and scenes, made entirely of flowers and arranged by hand directly onto the pavement. A procession ensues around the streets of the town led by the local priest, and blessings are given at temporary private altars, around which the flowered designs are displayed. The priest steps over the flowers, blesses the altars, and then the procession continues, after which the streets are hosed down and the flowers washed away, to return . . . as if by miracle . . .the following year Est Film Festival last week of July ...moreless
