Obviously the city of Rome, unique in the world for its artistic, cultural, historical and gastronomic heritage, lies a few kilometres away: leisure, glamour, shopping, food and fun are always there when needed! The area is full of ancient towns and villages of medieval origin (Calcata, Sutri, Nepi, Vitorchiano, Caprarola etc), with rich cultural and gastronomic traditions, therefore it is not unusual to find various events as food festivals, markets, feasts and excursions of great cultural interest. Additional attractions:Rome can easily reached either by coach and train which goes right into the centre of the city. There is also a very good dual carriageway. Other places of interest include Viterbo (39 km.)once a papal city, Cerveteri with its Etruscan tombs, and Tarquinia. Only 6 Km. away from the "autodromo" di Vallelunga. The coast with many sandy beaches is 35 kms away

The Lazio region
The territory of the Tuscia coincides largely with the area of the province of Viterbo and is located in the northern area of Lazio. To the north lies Tuscany, to the west the Tyrrhenian sea, to the south the greater metropolitan area of Rome, to the east Umbria and part of the Sebine located within the region of Lazio.
It boasts hills of medium altitude (Rufeno, Volsini, Cimini, Sabatini), two lakes of volcanic origin (Bolsena and Vico), an an extensive flat-lying area (the Viterbo Maremma), and several thermal springs (sulphur springs) around Viterbo (other springs are found near Orte and Vetralla).
One striking natural feature of the landscape are the deep gorges lying along the middle valley of the eastern bank of the Tiber. These gorges, once inhospitable to settlements and agriculture have acquired new vigor and interest as a favourite destination for tourists seeking off-the-beaten track itineraries.
The most representative cultural icon of Tuscia is the Etruscan people. This pre-Roman population has left precious testimony of its past in the necropolises of the area, particularly near Tarquinia (frescoed tombs, Vulci and Tuscania).
The artefacts that have come to light (pottery, gold work, bucchero, bronze work and sarcophaguses), preserved in museums throughout the world, may also be viewed in the impressive collections housed in the local mueseums of Tarquinia, Vulci, Tuscania, Civita Castellana and Viterbo. The rock tombs of Castel D'Asso, Norchia and Blera are also noteworthy.
The natural environment has not been subject to radical transformations, and today the area contanis several nature preserves and protected areas (Lake Vico, Lamone, the Treja Valley, Maturanum, Sasseta, Selva di Malano, Vulci and Mt. Rufeno).
The historic centres of the small medieval towns surrounding Viterbo (including Viterbo's medieval quarter, San Pellegrino, its papal palace, romanesque churches and fountains from varied eras) are clustered around castles and collegiate churches thrusting upalong the tufaceous cliffs of the territory (the most famous is perhaps Civita di Bagnoregio).
The Renaissance villas are of undeniable elegance: the Sacred Wood of Bomarzo (better known as the park of monsters), Villa Lante in Bagnaia, Villa Farnese of Caprarola and the Ruspoli gardens of Vignanello. Tuscia can also boast a number of beautiful sandy beaches and seaside resorts on the Tyrrhenian sea such as Marina di Montalto di Castro, Pescia Romana, Lido di Tarquinia.
