Italy and Portugal are both amazing places to visit. Appreciating each for its own value and values should not engage a competition. However, because of economics and politics, a preservation norm involving each of their respective villages is vastly different. Where it is often common...More

There are so many things about Viterbo I loved and this is one of them. Viterbo is full of history and it doesn't take much to find it. This center is a great starting point for your tour of Viterbo.

One of the larger historic centres in the region. Lots of beautiful little streets to wander around between meals. It is a university city so there are plenty of places to eat and drink good ice-cream if that is your thing. Worth a visit!

We arrived by car and found parking lot by luck, of course further you drive from access gates easier it gets. City living dates back further than its walls which were built 773. You can really feel old life here. It offers plenty to see...More
