Villa Tirrena guide
An exciting 7 day itinerary.... without even leaving Villa Tirrena. Located on the border of Lazio and Umbria, close to Rome. There is so much to see, do and experience at this location. From a private art museum to one of the most beautiful wine cellars in the world.
Culture Art Garden
Over the past 35 years, domain owners Paolo and Noemia d’Amico have been collecting works by key artists from the contemporary world scene such as Anish Kapoor, Banksy and Mitoraj. They are strategically spread among rose bushes, lemon trees and cypresses in a game of hide and seek. It is truly the most unique sculpture garden of the region; an outdoor art museum. Only open to the guests of Villa TirrenaWebsite

One of the most beautiful wine cellars in the world! The cellar is lit by hundreds of flickering candles, classical music is softly playing in the background and the wines are exquisite.

Activities Hike & Picnic
A special guided hike in the Valley of the Badlands and a delicious picnic at the end of the hike. The perfect way to spend the day in the stunning Italian countryside.
The beauty of the gardens, the breathtaking view of Calanchi, and the variety of spaces, indoor and outdoor, available make Villa Tirrena the perfect location for exclusive events such as receptions, weddings, dinners and board meetings, hosting up to 300 sitting down guests. Moreover, the estate sides onto a chapel, The Church of Saint Catherine. In case you are planning to propose....
For sports lovers Villa Tirrena has a wonderful private tennis court, with an on call instructor if needed.
Culture Civita di Bagnoregio
Of course you cannot leave without visiting the beautiful village you view from your window. It has become a very popular place with tourist, because of its mystic location. Its lays completely isolated on a hilltop surrounded by air that, especially in the mornings when the clouds surround the village it magical! Make it seem like it’s floating over the extensive canyons. It is connected only by a small pedestrian bridge (there are no cars on the island). One of the great things you can do if you stay at the estate, is to visit Civita early in the morning before the day-trippers arrive or, in the evening when te town empties of day visitors. You will have the mystical village all to yourself (except for the 9 habitants), to enjoy peaceful strolls in the streets that end in a stunning abyss.
