This was not the best weather for 'day-tripping'. . . but we headed out with GianMarco our driver, across Tuscany and Umbria to the town of Civita di Bagnoregio
Civita is a mid-evil city built high above the valley on the tufu rock. The only way to get there is a high footbridge that leads across the valley.
Not the easiest walk on a windy and rainy day.
One you pass through the walls, it is like a step back in time. The village is much as it has been for centuries . . . except for the constant erosion of the volcanic rock. The fronts of some homes lead to nothing but cliff.
Every corner of the village is a postcard (If Walt Disney was to build Italy... this is what it would look like) As the church bells rang, the skies began to clear. . .
The views are breathtaking. Rick Steves wrote this great article about Civita . . . worth a bit of arm-chair traveling .
The skies did clear and we all had a wonderful time . . . this is one of my favorite photos of our 'Spirit of Tuscany' group.
I am also joining Our World Tuesday
Y'all enjoy the ride~
