Full description
Enjoy a 3-hour guided tour of Viterbo’s city center. The town is located at the feet of volcanic lakes and springs. Popes leaving Rome in the 13th century chose Viterbo as their main residence. They contributed to building more beautiful churches, palaces, squares and other spectacular monuments and sites.

A top-rated local guide will take you to see Viterbo’s highlights and secret places, including the cathedral and Priori Palace, where popes are buried and the first conclaves, the elections of a pope, in history took place. Viterbo is also famous for its wine and cuisine. Your guide will suggest the most authentic eateries and wineries.

You will also have a chance to travel back in time to the middle ages, exploring one of Europe's best preserved medieval districts: San Pellegrino. A famous location for shooting films and TV series, directors like Orson Wells and Federico Fellini have shot their movies here.
