Enjoy Viterbo-Villa Lante (Bagnaia)-Palazzo Farnese- and/or villages on the slope of the Cimini Mountains with a private guide!
Viterbo is a magnificent medieval town but largely ignored by mass tourism. Its only fault is that it lies between two of the best-known tourist destinations in the world, Rome and Florence. This calm and rich town can claim to have been time ago at the centre of the world when the popes were residing there. After a pleasant walk and a stop for a capuccino, we will visit Europe's best-preserved medieval quarters and the imposing papal residence. After a stroll in the nearby Villa Lante renaissance gardens with its joyous fountains, we can have lunch in a historical garden of a private location in the picturesque Vetralla. After this leisure stop, our journey proceeds to the splendid Farnese palace on the slopes of the green Cimini hills. This imposing castle was transformed by an eighteen-year old cardinal into a renaissance luxury residence for popes and princes.

I would love to give Susannah more than 5 stars for the wonderful day we spent together. From the dock in Civitavecchia, she toured us through the countryside and were able to visit many of the Etruscan towns before heading to the airport in Rome. Lunch in her beautiful garden was a highlight of our entire trip. Her love for Italy was so obvious to us. We appreciated her sense of humor and her knowledge of the area. Grazie, Susannah! Hope to see you again someday - perhaps in the U.S.??
