"My husband and I began our honeymoon by staying 5 nights at Casa Verde in Castel Cellesi. We loved the whole experience. The house was perfect for our needs with full kitchen, including cooking utensils, 2 bathrooms ans a bedroom with a beautiful view of the valley. Eddie was very friendly, helpful, informative and accessible. He gave us a map and a full explanation of all the nearby sights worth visiting. With our rental car, we visited Viterbo, Orvieto, La Civita, Bolsena and montefiascone. All towns were unique and interesting. The food and wine were incredible. We would highly recommend Castel Cellesi to anyone looking for a relaxing experience that is a little bit off the beaten path."

Etruscan ItineraryOne day trip to Tuscania
If you are interested in the Etruscan civilization, you are in the right place! All around you there are archeological sites connected with the Etruscans...
For istance take "One day trip to Tuscania" (49 km.): drive to Montefiascone, down to Marta (Lake Bolsena) then on to Tuscania.
Visit the historical center of this beautiful town with the marvellous romanesque Churches Santa Maria Maggiore and San Pietro. The latter is situated on the Acropolis (hill-top)of the ancient etruscan settlement and preserves a number of interesting etruscan sarcophagies.
Spend your day visiting the rocky necropolis (tombs excavated in the rock) all around the hill slopes, the "dado" tomb in the area called Peschiera (it's a tomb in the shape of a little house with a double sloping roof and moulded cornices). At Pian di Mola see the incredible Tomb with pillared porch and statues, don't miss the large necropolis "Madonna dell'Olivo" which preserves, among the others, the famous "Tomba della Regina" (Queen's grave). Return to Castel Cellesi.
