From Civitavecchia: the Dying City and Monster Park Tour

1. From Civitavecchia: the Dying City and Monster Park Tour

Civita di Bagnoregio is located in Tuscia on the border between Tuscany and Lazio. It is called the "dying city" because the land on which it stands is slowly falling away and will inevitably disappear when the final pieces crumble into the spectacular Valle dei Calanchi below. Knowing this, and knowing that nothing can be done to prevent it makes your visit all the more special, eternal and timeless. This is the feeling that makes it unique and marvelous to the people who have experienced the dying city. Connected to the rest of the world by a three hundred meter bridge, Civita di Bagnoregio is a charming village which will make you feel you are visiting a world that no longer exists. Made up of old houses, narrow streets and surrounded by beautiful landscapes, discover a walk through the scenes and stories of this place and choose the corner that sparks your intrigue the most. You can explore the Romanesque Arch at the entrance to Civita, the Renaissance Palace or the large Piazza (which is the site of donkey races on the first Sunday in June and the second Sunday of September and where all the remaining locals come to socialize in the evenings). After visit the dying city, you will head on to discover the Monster's Park situated in the town of Bomarzo. It is also called "Sacred Wood", and was designed by Prince Vicino Orsini and the great architect Pirro Ligorio in 1552. The park is unique and represents refined Italian style gardens that follow geometric and perspective rationality with embellishments such as wide terraces, fountains with water games and mannerist sculptures. You will also discover here eccentric wood blocks of peperino, emerging from the ground and sculpted into enigmatic figures of monsters, dragons, mythological subjects and exotic animals.

What people are saying about Civitavecchia

Andrea was amazing, he was very knowledgeable as a guide. He definitely knows his way around the area and he definitely knows his stuff! We arrived slightly earlier and he managed to meet us and tweaked the itinerary so we can fit in more sightseeing views on the way to the cellars. Andrea’s choice of the wine cellars was top notch! The wine was amazing, the people at the winery were so knowledgeable and welcoming and the views were beyond compare. Andrea even tried to fit in an extra cellar in the day when he found out our preferences, really exceptional! I highly recommend Andrea if you are planning this journey. And take with you swimming suits as you get to take a dip in the Terme Di Saturnia!

Amazing Trip we saw so much in Rome

Emanuel was amazing he picked us up on the port as we got off the cruise ship. He then took us into Rome, parking within meters of everything. So nothing was too far to walk. He always managed to find somewhere near by to park and we saw so many more sites than we would have done on a standard trip! Would definitely recommend. Such an amazing day :)

Absolutely wonderful day! Our guide, Andrea, was personable and tailored our full day private tour to our wishes. We were picked up on time directly from our hotel. No problems whatsoever during the entire trip. We were able to enjoy far more unique sites in central Italy than if we had attempted to do this on our own with a rental car.

The tour was well organized. We were welcomed at the bus terminal and guided to our respective bus. In Rome a guide walked us to the hop-on-hop-off bus. The buses were reliable and at each stop was also a guide assisting with information. The trip was worth taking.

we loved the dead city it was so beautiful and would love to go back and we enjoyed the monster park greatly our guide /driver was very informative and helpful with everything
