What about a side trip to Tarquinia & Bomarzo? A stunning and largely intact walled Etruscan city, only a 20 minutes away from Civitavecchia, about an hour from Rome. You will visit the medieval part of this town, to marvel at the architecture and take in the breathtaking views we will then visit the Sacred Grove famously called, Parco dei Mostri or Park of Monsters. This park built in 16th century, is a surreal place with monstrous statues of mythological creatures like Cerberus, Pegasus and others. There’s also a small play park nearby. A place kids will surely enjoy! After a nice lunch in a local trattoria in Capalbio, we will visit Niki de Saint Phalle’s Tarot Garden. An absolutely magical place where nature meets the surreal, where you & your kids may run, climb and discover the funniest shaped creations and buildings made of thousands of tiles of mirror, glass, ceramics and other materials. The female French Architect, who was greatly inspired by the Spanish genius Antonio Gaudi from Barcelona, had the incredible chance to create a magical and spiritual dream your family can share visiting this enchanting and fascinating place! As in a fairy tale, before finding a treasure, you will face dragons, sorcerers, magicians and the Angel of Temperance …..explore and you shall be surprised!
