vitorchiano1Small, perched on a plateau of lava stone that falls straight on the bed of the river Vezza, surrounded by a double defensive wall and “faithful” to Rome, this is Vitorchiano.

The visit to this small town in the Tuscia is above all a pleasant walk in a village with narrow streets, arches, fountains, churches, its embattled walls and many symbols carved on the door lintels to highlight the link with Rome.


Just outside the village you can see a Moai carved on site in 1990 by Maori from the Easter Island, during a fundraising campaign to save the colossal statues of their homeland.vitorchiano2

Combine the visit of Vitorchiano with the nearby Sacred Forest of Bomarzo and Villa Lante or Viterbo.
