Hello Rome. And what a city it is. From the Trevi fountain to the talking statues of Pasquino and Marforio, from famous ancient bridges to medieval statues, from Renaissance art to Neoclassicism architecture, from the Colosseum in the busy metropolis of Rome to St Peter’s Square in Vatican City, Rome is remarkable. So remarkable, in fact, it is difficult to sell. It sells itself; it has its own distinctive character and charm. It is its own brand. It is the ‘‘Eternal City’’. Rome is quite simply, Rome. It is one of those rare places where everything you could possibly want, really is there. Well, almost everything
Viterbo. 50 miles north of Rome is the to the city of Viterbo. This former heart of the Etruscan civilization is something special. Its historic centre is widely considered to be among the best in central Italy. Its Palazzo dei Papi is a former residence of many Popes, its Gothic church of Santa Maria della Salute is stunning. It still maintains much of the architecture that helped it once become a more successful city than Rome. You could wander around the serene streets on a sunny afternoon and just think of the generations that walked upon the same medieval paths, and saw the same medieval sites.
To the South East of Rome, there is the unofficial region of Ciociaria. When it comes to ancient traditions and folklore, you will struggle to find somewhere more relevant than the region of Ciociaria. Pescasseroli is a beautiful village within the National Park of Abruzzo, and the village of Fumone and its Castle of Marchesi Longhi de Paolis protected the city in the 11th century, imprisoned pope Celestino in the 13th, and in the 21st is a great option for tourists.
