Civitella D’Agliano lies halfway between Orvieto and Viterbo (30 minutes drive). Rome and Florence can rapidly be reached by rail or motorway. Many of the famous towns of Tuscany are within easy reach, such as Siena and the Etruscan towns of Tarquinia and Tuscania. In Umbria, Todi, Spoleto, Deruta, Perugia and the Franciscan towns of Assisi and Gubbio are only an hour or two’s drive away.
The Argentario or the Duna Feniglia and its beautiful beach in the Maremma are also only 90 minutes drive away, for those who fancy a trip to the seaside. However, swimming sailing and windsurfing may also be enjoyed in the nearby lakes: Bolsena, nine km across with wonderfully limpid waters is only 30 minutes drive and the small lake of Vico, situated amongst the chestnut groves in magnificent scenery is also easily reached.
Viterbo, the main town of the Tuscia - the ancient name for the region in which we are located – is also renowned for its thermal waters: 'Bulicame' and 'Bagnacci', with their natural baths into which the water from the hot springs has been channelled, or the more sophisticated Spa centre of 'Terme dei Papi', open throughout the year, which channels hot water from the springs directly into a magnificent open-air swimming pool. Here too you can enjoy saunas and mud-therapy, massage facilities and their beauty centre.
For those who may not wish to roam too far afield, Civitella itself and its immediate surroundings offer many amenities, e.g. fully equipped facilities for playing tennis, for horse-riding, fishing, walking and cycling.
The 'Oasi di Alviano', a WWF bird sanctuary situated on the banks of the Tiber, offers opportunities for bird watching and guided tours.
There is easy access to many archaeological sites from here too. Not only Rome and its famous landmarks but also Etruscans sites and museums at Vulci, Tarquinia and Orvieto. We can also arrange the hire of a specialist guide to accompany you on a tour of the local sites.
