    Walk the narrow streets

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Main street going west

    You can easily walk all the narrow streets of civita. Go straight eastward fron the village entrance, pass the church of the square, and walk this street, to... On your right, terraces facing the valley with wonderful ladscapes...
    Go to the end, and you will find a narrow entrance to a little garden at the end of the village (on your left) with a little sort of museum in 2 small grottos, and a breathtaking view..

    Houses

    Of course, not every building is ffalling down. Some are just nice ancient bulding, and meny were restored in a very nice way not so long ago.
    Every house has, however, a nice "medieval" and cozy taste....

    An olive tree in the house

    Well, despite the picture here, not everything is falling here. The village is not totally diying...
    Hey, would you imagine that not more than 100 meters from the "house of the olive tree" i took in the attached picture, there are a building where the Univesity of Washington state keeps architecture courses?
    Well, that exactly what is true!

    Look at the remains of the ancient buildings

    partially fallen

    the first square you meet, on your right, has a bar, but also this building. Half of it seems in actual use, the other is gone with the rock itself.
    The result of these contrasts is really amazing.....

    The village entrance

    Entering the village

    Finally, you did! You are at the village door and the climbing is over.... Take your breath for a while, and take the first glance of the village center from the ancient gate.
    Take a look at the amazing landscape you see from there, too.

    The house went down the valley

    the remains of a fallen house

    Before entering the village, you can easily understand what happened to most of the houses, and to the whole hill that once connected the actual Civita to Bagnoregio itself..... The crumbly rock went down piece by piece, and many building with it
    This is only an example

    Climb to the village center.

    The village door as seen from the bridge

    The only way you have to reach the hilltop and the village is... to walk.

    there is only a narrow absolutely-no-cars bridge that crosses the valley and bring you there.

    While the first part is easy, the last one is steep and harder.... but not long.

    So, climb the road and reach the village gate, guarded by this building

    Houses belong to who ?

    Well, as you are longer wandering around in this place, you would want to buy a place here right ?...Maybe a house ?
    Well, no you can't !
    Unless you are very very rich...all the houses are privately owned !

    Still pretty all these years !

    Another sight along St. Mary Street...
    Notice the buildings or rather houses by the sides...& the steert itself which looks 'new'.
    This makes up Civita de Bagnoregio that we could see today !

    Like a theme park ?

    Another stretch of St. Mary Street...
    Small aligned houses still keeping their typical medieval aspects.
    Probably being that way to preserved the village itself.
    I have to mention here that the village doesn't look old but looks 'being preserved'...maybe to some of you, would look new like a small theme park, albeit being trapped in times !

    Densed in tufa...

    Another stretch of street in Civita de Bagnoregio !
    The only main street in this place is called St. Mary Street...
    The streets in Civita...are narrow & completely excavated in tufa, dense with shadows & lights...
