Photograph of the week: Civita di Bagnoregio

This is a photograph of Civita di Bagnoregio which is an Italian hill town about 2 hours north of Rome. The picture does not do justice to this town that has been in existence for 2,500 years. There are no more than 20 people living there now, but more coming back all the time. The town is slowly eroding away. In one instance only the front façade of a building is left, looking through windows that open to sky. There are 2 or 3 B&Bs and a handful of restaurants. There are a couple gift shops also. If you have time during your trip to Italy, and you are in this particular area, do not miss the opportunity to visit this jewel of a town. Civita di Bognoregio Thank you to Joe Mack of I Want To Go There Photography for permission to reproduce the image.
