Private Tour to discover a fascinating medieval city
This tour will lead us through the historical centre of Viterbo, a charming medieval town whose origins date back to the Etruscans and which is known as City of the Popes.
Once in Viterbo, we will start our visit from Piazza del Plebiscito, where we'll visit the Town Hall palace with its XVII century terrace embellished with a fountain, some Etruscan sarcophagi and its Royal Room decorated with beautiful mannerist frescoes.
We'll then move to piazza San Lorenzo to admire the elegant and famous lodge of the Popes and visit the romanesque Cathedral. Along the path we'll have the occasion to admire towers, fountains and to learn about the legendary origins of the town and some historical events which made Viterbo be the protagonist of the Italian XIII century history.
Finally, we'll walk trough the typical medieval area of San Pellegrino, with its building made of peperino rock, the profferli and the handicraft shops.
