Visit Civita di Bagnoregio in 2024

Perched high atop a hill in the region of Lazio, Civita di Bagnoregio captivates visitors with its timeless charm and enchanting vistas. Founded by the Etruscans over 2,500 years ago, this medieval village seems untouched by the march of time, offering a pristine window into the past. However, the beauty of Civita comes with a fragile note. The town stands on a constantly eroding rock, which over the centuries has led to landslides, causing parts of the town to crumble away. The very factors that make it a picturesque marvel also render it vulnerable, hence its moniker, "The Dying Town."
Apart from its undeniable visual allure, Civita's cobbled streets echo with history. The old stone houses, archways, and Romanesque churches tell tales of a bygone era, while the views of the encompassing valley are simply breathtaking. The town's isolation – it's accessible only by a pedestrian bridge – adds to its serene and almost otherworldly atmosphere.
Civita di Bagnoregio, with its ethereal charm and profound history, stands as a symbol of resilience and beauty. Every cobblestone, every whispering wind, and every sunset viewed from its precipice speaks to the soul, making it a must-visit for those seeking a genuine Italian experience.
