10Civita di Bagnoregio

Founded by the Etruscans 2,500 years ago, Civita di Bagnoregio is largely abandoned, partly due to the fact that it’s eroding at a relatively fast rate.

Fewer than 15 hearty souls call Civita di Bagnoregio home, and access it via a long footbridge. But tourists, who are drawn to the whitewashed 16th-century Romanesque Church of San Donato in the main piazza, overlooking the Tiber River Valley, are reviving it.
