Viterbo, The Pope's Town - CVN3

This  half day excursion is a perfect tour for those who would like to explore the flavors and history of Etruscan Italy. Pre-dating the Roman Empire, the Tuscia region has been the cradle of the Etruscan civilization with its roots dating from the 9th century B.C. Leaving the port area and heading north from Civitavecchia, you will view the warm colors of the Etruscan countryside as you make your way to Viterbo. You will appreciate a visit to the historic center of Viterbo which is still well surrounded by the medieval walls and this is still intact. These places were built in the 11th and the 12 the century. The entrance to the walled center of the city is through the ancient gates. Walk with your guide through the narrow cobblestone lanes of this charming village and take in the views of the surrounding valleys.

The main attraction of Viterbo is the Papal Palace (Palazzo dei Papi), that served as a country residence and a repair in time of trouble in Rome. The columns of the palace are spolia from a Roman temple.

The second most important monument of the city is the Cathedral of S. Lorenzo. It was erected in Romanesque style by Lombard architects over a temple of Hercules. It was variously rebuilt from the sixteenth century on, and was heavily damaged in 1944 by Allied bombs. The church houses the sarcophagus of Pope John XXI and the picture Christ Blessing by Gerolamo da Cremona (1472).

Note: Guests must be able to walk approximately 1 mile over uneven and cobblestone surfaces with a steep incline.
