Civita di Bagnoregio

Civita di Bagnoregio, Unesco heritage, was founded 2500 years ago by the Etruscans.

The town is noted for it’s striking position at the topo of a friable tufo pleateau overlooking the Tiber Valley.

The population today varies from about 12 people in winter to more than 100 in summer.

This particular area is very fascinating especially at sunset when the different brightness changes the colors of the clay making this area one of it’s kind.
