From the port of Civitavecchia to the medieval Viterbo and the mysterious park of rock monsters of Bomarzo


This is a very peculiar daily trip including two very interesting places of Tuscia:Viterbo, the old medieval City of the Popes, and the Sacred Wood of Bomarzo, a really unique garden built during the XVI century for want of Vicino Orsini and characterized by the presence of fantastic sculptures carved into big peperino rocks following an ideological and symbolic path created under the istructions of the Orsini himself. You must see it: "Whoever is not astonished by this park would not even admire the seven wonders of the world. ", used to say Vicino Orsini!
