suifeng2019The ancient city of Bailu Lizhio was built 2500 years ago. It is located at the top of a mountain and is connected to the outside world by a narrow long bridge. It looks like a castle floating in the sky in the distance, so it is called the city of the sky.
grace-luckyLake Bolsena is the largest freshwater lake in Italy. Quiet town, the air is fresh and negative oxygen ions are high. Under the warm and sunny sun, big and big white clouds hung low above the head, and the lake was blue and sparkling. There are large groups of wild ducks on the water. White sailing boat, old man fishing leisurely by the lake. Just want to sit quietly all afternoon.

It can get crowded so uts best to take a private tour which are available in plenty. It involves lot of walking so wear comfortable shoes.
IvayloI will recommend pre buying Skip the line tickets so you don't spend a huge amount of time in the queue. What I did was to buy the audio guide. All you need is to either pre buy it or buy the access on the spot. You will need to download the app, put your access code, download the audio guide and bring your own headphones. If you don't bring headphones, that's fine too, you can get a pair for 1 euro from the Basilica.

#mynovgetaway Vitorchiano is a small town about 45 miles north of Rome, near the local provincial capital of Viterbo. It is built above an Etruscan settlement and like other such sites in the region, it clings to a peperino rock bluff perched above two deep gorges, an impregnable position. The town is surrounded by 13th-century walls and the beautifully preserved historical center can be accessed from the main gate, Porta Romana. Several panoramic viewpoints look over the gorges below. One such viewpoint across the gorge, facing the historical town, is adorned by an exotic and unexpected monument.
The lone Moai statue was carved by hand with axes and stones by 11 members of the Atan family (Juan Atan Paoa being a descendant of Ororoina, the only survivor of a civil war between the Long Ears and Short Ears clans on Rapa Nui). The Easter Islanders had traveled to Vitorchiano to visit the Anselmi family, owners of a large peperino quarry in the nearby Cimini mountain range (symbolically connecting the Monti Cimini, an extinct volcanic complex, to the volcano of Rano-Raraku on Easter Island).
Their intention had been to carve a Moai statue in local stone (peperino being a volcanic stone that is high in demand around the world) to raise awareness about the poor state of conservation of the Moai statues on Easter Island. Upon completing and raising the statue, the Easter Islanders performed a sacred ceremony called “Kuranto,” which was broadcast on Italian public television. The statue had initially been placed in the center of Vitorchiano, where it was replaced by a fountain from the 1700s and moved to its present location. Like all others, the Vitorchiano Moai is crowned by a Pukao in pink peperino and its hands are wrapped around its navel. Today it stands out as one of the most unique and unusual monuments in Lazio, a powerful connection between two ancient civilizations: Rapa Nui and the Etruscans.
The spectacular mediaeval hilltop town of Civita di Bagnoregio, known as the "castle in the sky", is located in the province of Viterbo, 110km north of Rome.
Perched on exceptionally unsound foundations, the hamlet has gradually been reduced in size due to centuries of earthquakes and landslides which have chipped away at its soft volcanic base.
The original town centre remains intact, however, surging out of the desolate Calanchi valley whose chasms and chalky cliffs resemble a mini-Grand Canyon.
Christened La città che muore by the Civita-born writer Bonaventura Tecchi, this “dying town” has long been condemned by authorities over fears that its collapse into the valley is not only probable but inevitable. Today the town's community has dwindled to just 12 permanent residents, although that number increases to around 100 during the summer months. In 2015 the Lazio region's governor Nicola Zingaretti launched an appeal, calling on UNESCO to recognise Civita as a World Heritage Site. Zingaretti stated that Civita is “now in extreme and urgent need of maintenance unless we wish to deprive ourselves forever of a sentinel of our cultural history, a piece of our heritage.”
The Lazio Region also injected €1.2 million in shoring up the town’s shaky foundations to protect it from the erosion that “threatens its very survival.”
In September 2019 the region's campaign resulted in Civita becoming an official candidate in the prestigious UNESCO listing. If successful, its world heritage classification would ensure a steady flow of conservation funding for Civita.
The concept of saving Civita, however, predates Zingaretti’s appeal by several centuries. Records show that the townspeople were taking precautions as far back as 1373 when the digging of caves was banned, along with grazing beneath the town’s cliffs, whose bedrock comprises a 60-m thick layer of tufa over an unstable base of clay and sand.
Sitting on a plateau of friable volcanic tuff, Civita di Bagnoregio is frequently named “The Dying Town” because of the incessant erosion, so there’s only a handful of citizens here. The view from Bagnoregio is as impressive as you might expect. Photos don’t make justice to this gem, and a visit should be on every serious traveler of Italy.
Accessing to the beautiful historic centre is made possibile only by a foot bridge, every other road is just non-existent. Inside the hamlet ou can spot lots of details from its Etruscan past and the while place is very well preserved despite a recent revival in tourism that constantly brings crowds from all over the world, and sometimes this makes local residents a little nervous when their privacy is broken.
Tip: Book a night in one of the several bed and breakfasts for a very romantic trip!

Tuscany is one of the most interesting city in Italy. This old fashion town offers a lot of historical value and walking around the city is very refreshing and energizing. Be sure to taste the wine in this city. What an unforgettable experience that I had. #wintergetaway
This small town of Bailu Lizhi was built 2,500 years ago. It is independent and fleshy. It is said to be the prototype of Hayao Miyazaki's "City of the Sky". Due to geological changes and other reasons, the small town has to gradually disappear due to the collapse of the hillside, the deep valley of the valley, etc., coupled with the inconvenient traffic, it gradually fades out of people's sights, and may become a lonely city and a dead city in the future.
But when I arrived here, I know that although it is very small, it can be filled with small fresh air. It was thought to be called "Ghost City". It should be a special rundown. It should be a broken wall or even a garbage. I didn't expect to greet me. The gemstone flower also has green vegetation hanging down everywhere, the color of the cafe and the lazy comet, can not help but smile. Maybe the Italians don't like heavy weight. Can you be happy and relaxed, why not do it?
Located in the Tuscany region of Italy, more than 100 kilometers from Rome, there is an ancient city built in 2500 years ago - the ancient city of Bailu Lizhi. The ancient city built on a steep mountain top is connected to the outside world by a narrow bridge. Due to the earthquake and other reasons, the original residents moved away, so they were abandoned a few hundred years ago. The ancient city once again became famous for its inspiration, the famous Hayao Miyazaki cartoon "The City of the Sky".
Broken wall wreckage, time is thousands of years, but at the moment you step on it, it seems that everything is back in the past.
The white-brothers built by the Trurians are the birthplaces of the writer Dante, also mentioned in the Divine Comedy, the birthplace of the Catholic Franciscan founder St. Wende.
We stand at the intersection and see the ancient city standing alone in the distance. The wind blows the leaves and rustles, and a lonely, narrow road leads through the cliffs to it. Imagine the gloom of the sun, the night fog swept over, the dark outline of the ancient city must be like a mysterious island abandoned by God. To know that it used to be such a prosperous trade center, only because the building is mainly made of sand and gravel, the wind and the sun have received erosion, and people gradually leave their hometown. Once the citizens had not moved, they gathered in the square to open the market. A house collapsed and scared people to flee. After this incident, it was finally evacuated. The loneliness of hundreds of years has allowed Bailu Lizhi to escape the interference of the two world wars and the modernization of the city. When it was discovered again and became famous, we can see such a stunning and intact medieval city.
