In the same square there is alsothe tower of the clockwill look to the sky, this tower is the symbol of the city.
On the other side, we can appreciate the Church of St. Angelo in whose façade a sarcophagus is set. The legend says that it keeps the body of a girl “Bella Galliana” killed by a wealthy lover who never managed to conquer the girl’s heart.
Moving towards Popes palace you will find Palazzo Farnese. Later the Cathedral of San Lorenzo of Roman times and the adjacent Palace of the Popes, which is home to the Museum of Sacred Art.
Last but not least you will be able to visit the Church of S. Maria Nuova and the Sanctuary of Santa Rosa crossing the medieval quarter of San Pellegrino.
Bomarzo, an enchanted and magical place suitable for all ages. You will find yourself in a sacred wood populated by giant sculptures carved on the stone. Local stone named Peperino. The garden buyer was from the Orsini family.
Inside the garden you can also see the temple dedicated by Orsini to Giulia Farnese. He wanted to remember it forever and devote it to the building of this temple. See the map of the park.
At the end for about 1-2 hours our driver will take you to the restaurant. At the end of the lunch the visit will end at Viterbo. You will have time to admire some of its best known places and than finally return to Rome or Civitavecchia.
If you want to have a complete picture of the beauty of the Farnese’s palaces you will love joining Viterbo with the visit to Caprarola where the Palazzo Farnese Caprarola is located.
Furthermore Caprarola has a large heritage among churches, palaces and monuments. Surely you will be fascinated by the double bell tower of the Duomo (church of S. Michele Arcangelo) consolidated by Giuseppe Valadier after 1818.Equally important is the interior of the Cathedral has three naves, of which the central is very large. It preserves important works of various periods and in addition a beautiful organ.
Of course walking through Caprarola, you can not help but come across innumerable fountains like the Mask fountain or the Boccacce fountain.
For all the fans of the open air and lakes we have thought of this combo tour that combines the beauty of Viterbo with that of Lake Bolsena. In the ancient Borgo stands the perched castle dominating the largest volcanic lake in Europe.
You can not miss a visit to the Church of Santa Cristina where inside is a stone with the imprints of the saint.
If you want to continue the naturalistic excursion, after lunch, you can take a boat excursion, otherwise our driver will take you to the nearby Viterbo to admire some of the most important monuments.
With this itinerary you could visit also Montefiascone with the popes palace.
