is a B & B located in the heart of Civita
(to get here to Civita you have
to walk across a path/bridge that connects the
real world to this ancient city)
will not be disappointed with this picturesque
and exquisite little town. Franco Sala is your
host here and theres not a person who
doesnt think he offers the greatest hospitality
and welcome. Franco says there are no Star ratings
at his B & B, but theres always a
.I like that and I like him. The hotel
sits in the main square and all of the rooms
face that square some rooms have bath
and some dont make sure you request
your needs when making a reservation. The hotel
is in a palazzo from the 15th century. The B
& B has a restarant that serves typical
cuisine of the area as well as some specialties
like bruschetta mista, tagliatelle with medieval
sauce, piciarello alla Franco, gnochetti al
pesto and piciarello al tartufo. YUM! Book in
advance this is far too wonderful a place
to miss and quite the slice of rustic Italy.

d'imboccare l'Autosole a Orvieto e di dirigerci a nord pensando
già a un pretesto per tornare in Tuscia, saliamo brevemente
"tra le nuvole" a Civita di Bagnoregio, piccolo
borgo, quasi un presepe aggrappato a uno sperone tufaceo,
che sembra appena dipinto da Magritte o comunque da un pittore
in vena di visioni romantiche, anzi surreali. Nel silenzio
del meriggio si sente solo la vocina di Elisabetta, una bimba
dai riccioloni neri che sotto il pergolato della minuscola
trattoria racconta al suo cane Birillo storie avvincenti.
Anche lei sarà una bellissima etrusca. Del XXI secolo.

Dear Mister Sala
We visited Bagnoregio in April and enjoyed two meals at your restaurant.
I am sure you will not remember us but I really loved your pasta
with a Bolognise sauce. Yours, a restaurant in Venezia and restaurant
in Napoli are the only ones that had a Bolognise sauce with that
taste and flover. I have purchased and made several souce from several
italian cook books but can not find the recipe like your sauce.
I would apprecciate ...............
Yours, Joseph and Lynn Cilluffo

Though we only spent two days in Civita, we took 90%
of our pictures there! We are so very grateful for our wonderful
stay there. It truly was the highlight of our trip. We will be sure
to come to Civita again on our next journey- whenever that will

I greatly enjoyed my stay in Civita. It was my most
favourite place I visited in Italy. Thank you for your hospitality
and wonderful cooking!

Jim says he has not had a good plate of pasta since
he left your dining room. Please tell me how to make sauce(no tomato
sauce). You can leave your secret ingredient out! He tells me you
told him you did not boil your pasta. Is it possible? After you
made your sauce, you threw in the pasta? How do you make a garlic
and mushroom sauce, when does the liquid come from? I've tried and
tried and still Jim says "not like Franco's".

We will forever thankful to you, Franco, for welcoming
travellers like us to your charming hill town. It is truly a scene
from a fairytale where one who is weary from crowds and traffic
and tourists and trains can escape. Like stepping into a time machine
and arriving centuries ago, and yet being able to check e-mail from
home on your computer!

I just wanted to express how fantastic that place
is and to thank you for your exceptional food, service and company
that you brought to us while we were there. Of all the places I've
seen in Italy, Civita is one of my two favorites and probably the
town which has left the greatest impression on me. Certainly the
best of all the hill towns I've seen so far.
Again, I'd like to thank you for an experience which
ranks among the best I've ever had in Europe.

We wanted to write to tell you how much we loved the
time we spent with you in Civita. The short time we were there in
May, in our secret hideaway, was so memorable. You made our first
trip to Italy the best!

In all our travels through France, Italy and Greece,
our favorite was Civita. I hope it doesn't change too much before
we get back there.

Can't say when, but we'll be back. We loved everything about Civita.
It was a wonderful place to relax after the hustle and bustle of
Thank you for such a splendid experience.

It seems like an eternity since we left Civita, although it has
only been a month and a half. We have such beautiful pictures and
memories to remind us of it! You just cannot imagine the reaction
people have when they see our pictures. Most people can't believe
a town such as Civita really exists.

FRANCO WISHES TO SAY " THANK YOU" TO ALL THE FRIENDS
THAT SENT US THESE BEAUTIFUL E-MAILS AND HOPES TO SEE ALL OF YOU
BACK TO CIVITA VERY SOON
