Surroundings
       
   

Celleno



 
   
   
Celleno is located in the eastern part of the Tuscia area of Viterbo and is set in the countryside dotted with cherry trees.
The old hamlet is by now uninhabited and it is located on the top of the hill, a little far from the new Celleno. The old hamlet consists mainly of small red tuff houses, without plaster, for the most part in ruins, because they were abandoned after the disastrous earthquakes that caused great damage to the village. Some finds testify the presence of the first settlements dating back to the 13th century B.C., but probably the area was already inhabited in the Neolitic age as it is proved by the finding of stone weapons dating back to that period. Celleno is located in a strategic position and being on the road for Viterbo , it was invaded by the Romans that seized it in 264 B.C. throwing the Etruscans out. Later it was attacked and sacked by the Goths, the Longobards and the Byzantines.


Castle Orsini

Unlike the historical centre, the imposing building seems to have passed unharmed through the terrible telluric shocks that have threatened the hamlet several times and it shows its majestic grandeur.

Castello di Montecalvello

Montecalvello, which rises around a castle where the famous Balthus, a contemporary painter, lived for thirty years.
Restored by Count Balthus Klossowski de Rola, the castle is beautifully maintained and still evolving.The studio of Balthus still has canvases on easels and a table where the artist worked.

La Necropoli delle Pianezze (Necropolis of the Pianezze): just outside the town of Grotto di Castro, this interesting archaeological site houses numerous tombs that date back to the period between the 7th century and 6th century B.C, including the very famous Tombe Rossa (Red Tomb).

Walking in the surroundings of Bolsena Lake | The Via Francigena


   
Bolsena is crossed by the Via Cassia, the ancient Roman road which during the Middle Ages became known as Via Francigena. The municipalities of the towns of Acquapendente and Bolsena (located at the border between Latium and Tuscany) have restored (for pedestrians only) the old Via Cassia where it diverges from the current one. Via Francigena walks have become very popular among the residents and the many foreigners who live in the area.

VF - 38 - From Bolsena to Montefiascone | 18.3 km, 05:17 hours | Map

Among olive groves and brushes the path detaches from Bolsena and, after going up and down, admiring wonderful sights of the lake, come back to the paving along the ancient Via Cassia. The 360 degree view from the Tower of Pilgrims in Montefiascone is exciting. Pay attention to traffic walking along the tracks between Croce del Pellegrino and Ponte della Regina, Cassia Main Road till Poggio Lungo. Water supply only in the first section of the route.


VF - 39 - From Montefiascone to Viterbo | 17.8 km, 04:38 hours| Map

The first section of the route is spectacular, walking along the ancient paving of Via Cassia, still in good condition. Walk across a hill track, overlooking lovely views of Montefiascone and Viterbo. Down the flat you can relax at the thermal baths of Bagnaccio, a series of ponds of hot water, visited by pilgrims walking along Via Francigena. In Viterbo don't forget to visit the historical centre and San Pellegrino district. Very little water, no road-houses in the itinerary.
