    Walk back into Italy of the early 1900s. Thanks to a serious of earthquakes that left this village abandoned atop a small mesa, cut off from its neighbors, this village has barely changed in 100 years. A beautiful monument to once-upon-a- time Italy.

    Come here at dusk! It seems as if most tour groups leave by then and the place will be emptier, and the photos you can take will capture an ephemeral glow. This small community, also known as "The Dying City", is only accessible by foot on a bridge. Prepare for a bit of a walk with moderately steep inclines towards the entrance. The views from Civita are breathtaking, and the locals who live there are very sweet. Some were kind enough to show us their gardens - all of which added to the postcard imagery of the entire area.

    "Civita di Bagnoregio è unica, perchè è circondata da un'aura che la rende diversa da ogni altro posto. E' stata ribattezzata "la città che muore" ed appare al visitatore all'improvviso dopo un lungo viale che scende da Bagnoregio. Sembra un'isola sospesa nel vuoto, legata alla terra da un lungo ponte che rimane l'unico elemento moderno, tutto il resto è un piccolo mondo fuori dal tempo. La chiamano "la città che muore": il tufo frana poco a poco portandosi via, un pezzetto alla volta, anche il paese ... morirà davvero solo quando l'ultimo viaggiatore dimenticherà di essere stato qui !"

Description

Balanced precariously on a tall plateau overlooking the Tiber River Valley, the Civita di Bagnoregio is a shrinking city - literally. Erosion is slowly causing edges of the plateau to crumble, taking parts of the city with it. The city is famous as the boyhood home of Saint Bonaventure (though his house has long since fallen off the cliff). Originally founded by the Etruscans more than 2500 years ... read more
