“Great Medieval Quarter”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

Great medieval quarter, the largest of anywhere in Italy we were told. It gave me the feeling of going back in time and experiencing what medieval Italy was like. Very well-preserved, clean, and interesting. Lovely places to dine, as well, either inside or al fresco.

“Medieval city, worth visiting”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

Advisable to go to the information office for a map of the city. Take a stroll through the characteristic streets and historical centre. Lots of bars, restaurants and parking around. In every square there is something interesting to see, churches, the clock tower etc. Don't miss a visit to the town hall, absolutely fantastic!

“Lovely medieval city”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

We spent about 4 hours strolling round the streets of this beautiful medieval city enjoying the wonderful and quaint architecture. Stop at the information centre to get a city map so you don't miss anything as there is plenty to see at every turn. As you walk around you can also take in some gorgeous views from this mountain top city. Plenty restaurants to choose from to extend your stay here.

“Definitely Worth a Visit”
Reviewed 15 July 2013

We were looking for a place to stay for a few nights before returning home via Fiumicino. Some Italian acquaintances suggested Viterbo. Our initial reaction was not favourable. There were no hotels in the medieval quarter. It was difficult finding a parking spot near the B&B we booked. And the B&B was on first glimpse not impressive. Once we were lucky enough to find a parking spot not far from the B&B and took a better look at our room and the location of the B&B, we realized everything was perfect and the ancient quarter was really lovely. It is filled with medieval buildings, squares, and restaurants. Moreover we were there during the cultural festival which provided a lively atmosphere. There were few tourists and lots of room to move around. The locals were very friendly and helpful; we enjoyed talking to them in our non-existent Italian and their limited English. We even got to love our room. Viterbo is terrific. Don't miss it.
