Vista di Tuscania

The sight from the Tuscania’s medieval wall is one of the most beautiful of the region; the townis few kilometers far away from Viterbo, entirely surrounded by soft hills and untouched nature, the vast majority of it  being a natural preserve. Tuscania, as many of the nearby villages, rises up on some tuff hills between two rivers, the Marta and the Capecchio; overlooking the valley from this position, the town controlled for centuries the important communication and transhumance route between the Bolsena Lake and the Tirrenian Sea via Tarquinia.
In 1971 an earthquake devastated the town, causing 31 deaths and hundreds of injured. Nevertheless, this city managed to rise up again, becoming one of the most successful example of restauration of Italy.
