Booked this hotel in a hurry as a stopover before flying out of Rome and didn't really pay too much attention to what it was like. Was very pleasantly surprised when we arrived to see what a gorgeous place it place it was and what a fabulous little town Civita Catellana is (though not that near Viterbo). The receptionist (?Georgina) was exceptionally helpful and professional and gave us a lovely room overlooking the courtyard with a heavily scented wisteria overhanging one of the windows. The room had bags of character but was also very comfortable with a huge bathroom. It was tempting just to stay there but we asked advice on where to go in town and were signposted to the key points of interest which included a tour round the fort which includes the town museum. I'd already been round 5-6 provincial museums but this was by far the most impressive with a great display of Faliscan, Etruscan and Roman artefacts. The main square, cathedral and gorge were also all very impressive. Breakfast was fairly standard but we really appreciated the staff setting it up half an hour early to accommodate our early departure. Landing up at Falisco was a real bonus and a great way to round off our holiday.
