Civita di Bagnoregio: Ancient Endangered Hill Town in Italy

Civita di Bagnoregio, Province of Viterbo, Italy. Initially Civita was the first settlement established by Etruscans over 2 500 years ago, whereas Bagnoregio was its suburb. Only recently tourists rediscovered the sister towns, that mesmerize with impressive nature and panoramic views, as well as historic architecture, balancing on a fragile cliff.

The ancient city is founded on a volcanic plateau above the Tiber river valley. Its several hundred years old architecture denotes versatile history, but also needs a preservation plan: the city is included in the list of 100 Most Endangered Sites. Tourists are welcome by the few friendly locals, whose number quickly decreases.One of the most beautiful Italian hill towns, having ancient history, architecture and great panoramic views.
