CIVITA DI BAGNOREGIO
GUIDE FOR TRAVELING THROUGH ONE OF ITALY'S OLDEST CITIES
Civita di Bagnoregio is this really charming village that sits at the plateau of a mound of volcanic rock. The town is over 2500+ years old and is constantly at risk of erosion from decaying rock. This was actually the HUBS find. Neither of us had ever heard of this town before but I am so glad we went. In fact, this is where Pinocchio was filmed. Geppetto's shop is still here and can be visited! Its actually an olive oil bottle manufacturer. The views from Civita are beautiful. Every corner & crevice of Civita de Bagnoregio is chock full of beautiful blooms and vines.
- RATING: 4/5
