The private tour in Viterbo departs from your hotel in Rome at 8,30 am. After about 1,15 h we’ll reach Viterbo, a town of 65,000 inhabitants and we’ll have a guided tour of its medieval neighbourhoods. Viterbo was first settled by the Etruscans, whose traces were discovered right on the hill where the Cathedral now stands. In Roman times, the city became a strategic intersection along the busy Via Cassia. In the 12th century, work began on the city’s massive defence walls, which are wholly intact even today. The material used was peperino, a characteristic local volcanic stone of a sombre grey colour. The various gates providing an opening in the walls (Porta Romana, Porta Fiorentina, etc.) lead to the medieval town centre, including the splendid quarter of San Pellegrino, Palazzo dei Priori and Palazzo dei Papi. Palazzo dei Papi, or the “Popes’ Palace”, is so called because it was the place chosen by the Roman popes as their abode for several decades. They adding buildings and monuments to Viterbo, turning it into a city of worldwide importance.
