Let the crown jewel of Civita embrace you with it's facade seemingly made of silver and gold. Sparkle and shine friends.
Strolling through the elegant Etruscan entryway is like entering another time period, but make sure to pack your sunglasses as the gold glinting off the tufa rocks surrounding the town and the silver inlaid in the basalt streets may overwhelm with its opulence. Domus Civita is an homage to history and it's opulence is easily juxtaposed with its heart and attention to amazing detail. This place would host a bash for the bucket-list, Italy lovers.
To arrive at the foot of Civita di Bagnoregio is to discover a place that until then only existed in dreams: the ultimate Italian hill town preserved by a rich and splendid history and by the love of its current inhabitants. Entering the old town by walking over its footbridge and going through its Etruscan gateway is like stepping back in time 600 years to rediscover the beauty and peace of a different way of life. The town appears almost made of gold and silver - the gold of the tufa rock of its cliffs and houses, the silver of its basalt paved streets. Like a jewel that was eroded by time only to preserve its most beautiful core, Civita will transport you to a place of wonder and poetry, close to the incredible history of man’s tenacity and vision, to nature’s endurance and labor of love. Civita’s most illustrious citizen, the philosopher Saint Bonaventure, once said “sentiment penetrates where intelligence does not reach” and the town in many ways represents just that…a place to get lost in, beyond our understanding of it. We believe that Civita is one of the most noble and beautiful places on earth and by restoring a small piece of it we wanted to partake of the magic that enticed us when we first fell in love with it. The restoration of Domus Civita was first of all an homage to a town that survived earthquakes and landslides, war and famine, and found its rightful place in our modern world; and, secondly, an attempt to provide a unique experience of serenity, beauty and respite for the discerning traveler and lover of Italy.
