About the Owner

Initially my wife and I were looking for an apartment in Tuscany but they were very expensive and the towns there were busy with tourists. The Tuscia (Northern Lazio) though was less developed but to our mind just as beautiful. The international school Lorenzo de’Medici (offers courses on Italian language, history and culture) has recently opened a branch in Tuscania to offer an authentic experience of Italian culture to its students and that makes sense why once you have been there. We now have a young family and the kids enjoy staying here as much as we do.

Relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

Just a little over an hour from Rome you can find this hidden pearl of a place called Tuscania. We rented the appartment for 5 nights. It is a spacious 2-bedroom apartment, well equipped, with a full kitchen and a cozy back yard. We got the "true Italian experience" living in the apartment, that has an excellent location inside the old city walls! Good variety of restaurants and local shops nearby! Wonderfull stay!

Location

From the Owner

We've had the place for years now and are still discovering new things. When the weather is hot it is nice to go to the beach either at Lake Bolsena or at the coast. It is a good base to get to places like Orvieto in Umbria or into Tuscany, places like Scansano (where Morellino wine comes from) or Partigliano (the cliff-top town). Although we still enjoy spending time actually in Tuscania. There are plenty of little café/bars and restaurants, as well as an Etruscan museum and an open-air swimming pool. And the views from the park across the Etruscan valley of St Peter’s church are stunning. Most of all we just enjoy being immersed in a different culture and language.

Facilities

From the Owner

The place is easy to get to and connected by main routes. From Rome it is just over an hours drive. To get the full benefit out of a holiday in the area you need to hire a car. It is a short drive to the beach – either at Lake Bolsena or the coast (where there are various beaches such as Pescia Romana). Parking in Tuscania it quite easy. Generally you can park a minute or so away from the apartment.
