Tuscania @ Italian Village Vacation

Guests Impressions

"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."

Tuscania landscapeSituated between Viterbo and Tarquinia and between the two important roads Cassia and Aurelia, Tuscania stands out from the distance encircled by its magnificent city-walls and watch-towers. A great number of mouments dating back from th Etruscan and the Roman times but especially the romanesque churches of San Pietro and Santa Maria Maggiore bear witness of the great importance of the city in the past.

The hill of San Pietro was the “Acropolis” of the Etruscan settlement: all around it Necropolis were excavated and a lot of very precious tombs and sacophagies were found.

Tuscania churchFrom the Roman Age (Tuscania was conquered by the Romans in the III century B.C.), in addition to the remains of some buildings, baths, city walls etc., still evident is part of the pavement of the Via Clodia (one of the great communication roads built by Emperor Claudio). The most important monuments of Tuscania are the magnificent Churches of San Pietro and Santa Maria Maggiore, both erected outside the city-walls: the former was founded in the VIII century, then rebuilt in lombard romanesque style through the XII–XIII centuries, the latter founded perhaps in the V century, reconstructed in the XII-XIII centuries. They are considered as the most beautiful examples of Romaneque Architecture in the centre of Italy.
