where to eat in civita di bagnoregio
Jewel on the hillThis place is magical and breathtaking, it was built by the Etruscans and sits on a hill with stunning views all around. Only accessible by the walkway, no vehicles. There are a few restaurants that are very good, our favorite is Alma Civita.
The best day tripThis was an amazing day... Probably one of our favourite days...The climb was well worth it...It is strenuous for the less-fit or if you have physical challenges so beware of that. Even if you cannot make it into Civita itself, you can see it from Bagnoregio. We made the hike walked around the old city a bit then had lunch in the old city.. Enjoyed a bottle of the local wine Est!Est!!Est!!!...and some gelato.. We got buzzed because we are not drinkers then had a time crossing the bridge back to Bagnoregio! All in all a great day!
BreathtakingJust absolutely beautiful!!!!! It’s peaceful and has about 6 restaurants. It’s a bit of a walk so take a water bottle but it’s way worth it!!
Incredible viewsAbsolutely beautiful city filled with history and great photo opportunities. It is a lot of walking and would be difficult with a stroller or wheelchair. But if you can make the climb it is well worth it! Grab a gelato before you head in 🙂
Stunning cityWe came to visit with our friends who had been here before and were very pleased that we did. We visited on an extremely hot (37 degrees C / 98 degrees F) Sunday so that may have been a mistake...started with all of the parking at the shuttle bus lot being full so we had to park at the top of the hill in a residential area. Then, our friends wanted to walk to the city. Second mistake? The walk across the bridge was beautiful but unbelievably hot. When we finally arrived at the top, our first impression was amazement at what we had just accomplished and at the fabulous panoramic view that we had.
Amazing site - the island in the skyIt is well worth visiting the amazing old town of Civita di Bagnoregio sitting atop tufa volcanic rock. Yes, the walk up the bridge to the old town gets the heart rate going - but it is well worth the effort!
Visit before it's too late"The dying town" as it is called by the locals, it is an astonishing (and windy) place, where you can live for one day a quite realistic italian small town life in a strategic position over the valley. The few locals are quite welcoming and you can have a walk trough the town and eat some very delicious local dishes. Less than 2 hours drive from Rome. Must see.
Wish I could give it 10 starsThis is an absolute must! If you’re anywhere near Orvieto, you should put this on your list. It’s unlike any other hill town you’ve ever seen. As other reviews have mentioned, yes, it’s a taxing hike up - but sooooo worth it. The views along the way - and once you’re there - are spectacular. The little town has undergone many changes since I first went there several years ago. More shops and restaurants but it’s still unique and a favorite place in all of Italy for me.
Extremely unique townOn a trip from Rome to Orvieto we stopped at Civita di Bagnoregio and were awestruck by its beauty and uniqueness. It's a must stop if you are anywhere near.
Unlike anything I've ever seenI am overweight and unfit, but this was worth the agony! A very taxing hike, but the views are spectacular and could never be appreciated by pictures alone. Our lunch was simple but very tasty. Be prepared to encounter many other tourists!
The suspended cityA small town where time seems to be suspended and everything keeps a strange quiet. The sightseeing is spectacular: this town dominates the surrounding valley and is elevated on a natural hill with sharps walls. A single long stairway connects the small town with the surrounding land. The fee for the visit is 6 euros per person. In the town there are several restaurants and bistrot. It deserves the visit.

events in civita di bagnoregio
An ancient event linked to the rural and agricultural tradition of the territory, the Palio della Tonna remains one one of the town’s most anticipated events. It takes place on the first Sunday of June and on the second Sunday of September! The jockeys ride donkeys through the main square, making three rounds in a circle and then head off for another series of races. The best two jockeys qualify for the final and the winner is awarded the Palio painting.
Exhibition of art, music and culture in the summer of Civita di Bagnoregio, organized by the municipality of Bagnoregio, with the patronage of the Lazio Regional Giovernment, the Province of Viterbo, the Minister of Youth and Civita. A series of events dedicated to music, theatre and culture, it’s held between the months of July and August. There are plenty of famous faces, theatrical performances, concerts and much more. A great pick if you want to see grassroots art in Tuscany.
One of the town’s oldest festivals, dedicated to the chestnut, a local export of the territory of Civita di Bagnoregio. In the past, chestnuts were much more than just a nut, but the lifeblood of the area, so it makes sense that they are still celebrated with a big party! During the festival, you can enjoy roasted chestnuts, craft markets and small shows and concerts, as well as the beauty of the town of Civita di Bagnoregio in autumn. The festival is held in October each year.
Words are not enough to describe the magic and charm of this event that makes the city of Civita di Bagnoregio famous. The Living Nativity Scene is a unique traditional event. In the lead up to Christmas, the town is transformed into Little Bethlehem and welcomes the historical re-enactment of the nativity. In the streets, you will meet shepherds with their own flock, blacksmiths, bakers, weavers, and of course the inevitable grotto where locals play Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus.
