    Bomarzo - Part 5

    by Lacristina Updated Apr 14, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The slow life of a small, walled hill town.

    My friend Giancarlo, who owns two apartments in the walled castle area, introduced me to these two charming Bomarzians, who overwhelmed me with their kindness. They insisted on giving me two bottles of their home-made wine because they were so grateful to have me as a guest!

    After a short walk through the town, I returned and saw this scene which seemed to capture the wonderful quiet life of this town.

    That night, I returned to Rome, and my American friends and I made a great dinner, drank their wine, and toasted the wonderful and warm Italian culture and Italian friends we had made.

    The Italian love of flowers everywhere.

    Charming scenes like this abound. The old, walled city and castle quite a small area) have been converted into apartments. The apartments are owned and lived in by locals, but also by people from the city (Rome and elsewhere) who come here for the weekend.

    Some streets are less than three feet wide!

    This narrow passageway is a street! You can stand in the middle and easily touch both walls. You see what I mean about streets too narrow for a fat horse? The Bomarzo walled castle area is a wonderful place to explore and try to get lost. Each corner brings a new delight.

    Stone steps are worn from hundreds of years of ste

    Steps worn by hundreds of years of hundreds of feet. When I saw this scene it almost made me dizzy to imagine the years and years of history. When Americans see places like this, we know we've seen something special.

    Bomarzo - Part 1

    Park here, than walk up Via del Castello

    Everything about Bomarzo is off the beaten path!

    However, Bomarzo is very close to an exit on the A1. Just keep driving up toward the castle. Find this parking lot, next to Via del Castello (Castle Street), park, and begin exploring the castle area on foot. (The best map of Bomarzo on the internet can be found at www.mappy.com. Enter “Via del Castello” and Bomarzo. You can also ask for directions. Be sure to choose “Maxi” from the “map” tools on the left of the page, i.e. the lower right corner in green.)

    by coceng Written Jul 30, 2003


    ...Do you own excursions in this Lazio region of Italy....You will immerse yourself with nice sceneries all around....Make a stop at some nice hilly towns,... taking photos, if you are on a bus, it wouldn't be possible...unless you asked the driver to stop....

    The photo on the left was taken by me on the bus...didn't know the name....but the photo turned out good !...

    Civite de Bagnoregio...

    ...Like I said it is wise to have your own car transport in this area..because there are many nice towns...rich in history & amazing sceneries abundant in the region....

    One other place that I went to & so can all of you..is Civite de Bagnoregio...A hilly town perched on top of a dying hill....

    Please reach this town before the hill is crumbling down (touch wood, no !...)....or worst, more & more tourists coming here....

    What could be worst than that ?!...

    Viterbo...

    ..I arrived in Bomarzo by bus from Viterbo...VT doesn't list Viterbo in Italy...but Viterbo elsewhere...

    Viterbo itself is full of history....I managed to capture these walls surrounding Viterbo....

    Viterbo located in the north of Rome...maybe about 2 hours by bus or car...
