Rome Expats: Day Trip to Civita Di Bagnoregio "The Dying Town"

Description

Come join us for an awesome Day Trip to Civita di Bagnoregio "The dying Town" hosted by Expats living in Rome



This trip usually books fast. Do not come to the bus without a paid ticket or confirmation that there is a seat!



One of the most beautiful old towns in Italy, it is also disappearing. Civita di Bagnoregio, a quarter of the Municipality of Bagnoregio, is located on a tufa rock hill and can be reached only by crossing a pedestrian bridge. Called the "The dying Town" by Bonaventura Tecchi, who was born here, Civita di Bagnoregio risks disappearing because the tufa hill where it is located is being eroded at the base by the continuous action of the two streams in the valleys below and from the rain and wind.



The destiny of this place, the cluster of medieval houses, the handful of families who still live the surreal landscape of surrounding white clay canyons make Bagnoregio a unique and enchanting place.



Program:

8:45 - Meeting Ostiense Train station parking lot. Being on time is REQUIRED

9.00 - Departure to Civita Di Bagnoregio

11:00 - Arrival



Once we arrive we will be able use the restrooms and refresh before taking shuttle bus to Civita with the guided in ENGLISH. We'll catch the first shuttle bus (Extra cost of 1€ shuttle bus roundtrip) Please bring a few euros coins with you to avoid making change. There is also a service charge to enter Civita which cost €3.



If you do not want to take the shuttle bus for €1 you can also walk it's about 15 minutes to the entrance where we will all get our tickets and start the tour.



14:00 - Tour ends and you can have lunch and walk around and take pictures. Places to eat in Bagnoregio are small so it would be difficult to find a place to accommodate big groups. You can either pack a lunch and sometimes the team can reserve for lunch but max 25 people would be able to attend. Which means if you are interested in having lunch with the group you have to let us know on the bus that you are interested in having lunch with us.
