Civita di Bagnoregio: how to get there and what to see

Civita in recent years has really become a source of pride for the entire Lazio region and also one of the most followed and visited villages.

As already mentioned, to reach the village of Civita you have to cross the 300-meter suspension bridge that connects it with Bagnoregio. Arm yourself with a camera because at every step you will find yourself in front of a breathtaking view!

Once you cross the bridge, the first important monument you will meet is the Porta San Maria,surmounted by a pair of lions that arthle two human heads, symbol of tyrants defeated by the Bagnoresi.

Further on the Via San Maria opens in the main square,where you can admire the Romanesque church of San Donato restored in the 16th century. Here are preserved really interesting works such as the wonderful 15th-century wooden crucifix of the School of Donatello, and a fresco of the School of Perugino.

First consider that the visit to Civita di Bagnoregio occupies on average from 2 to 4 hours, lunch or dinner excluded. The only way to reach the village is through the bridge that connects it with Bagnoregio. If you come by car you will have to leave it at the paid parking lot downstream, under the bridge. A shuttle will take you to the entrance of the bridge or if you prefer you can reach it on foot, but the road is uphill and quite steep. We warned you!

In any case, in our opinion, the best way to reach Civita di Bagnoregio is by car:

for those coming from the North:follow the A1 motorway towards Rome and exit at Orvieto. At the exit of the toll booth turn left and follow the signs for Civita di Bagnoregio. Alternatively, for those who travel along the SS2 Cassia, at Montefiascone take the SS71 Umbro-Casentinese. After about 14 kilometers turn right for Bagnoregio.
for those coming from the South:after leaving the A1 at the Orvieto toll booth continue on the highway (Rome and Bagnoregio are about two hours away).

By train:
There are two railway stations where you can make a stopover to Bagnoregio: Viterbo and Orvieto, from where you can take the buses of the COTRAL linesto reach Bagnoregio.PRICES

To cross the bridge and reach the village you pay €5
