Orvieto-Lubriano-Civita Bagnoregio. – The path of the Via Romea towards Rome starts from Orvieto to reach Porano and then Lubriano and Civita Bagnoregio. From there we will then go to Montefiascone where the Via Romea Germanica joins the Via Francigena.
You can leave Orvieto through Porta Romana and go towards the Arcone. From there on a nice climb, with a cobblestone ground, you arrive at the Capuchin convent and continue up to a flat stretch. Orvieto gives a good show of itself from above; nearby there are Etruscan tombs. Climb up to Castel Rubello and then arrive in Porano. Once in front of the Rubello Castle, it is worth entering and crossing its internal courtyards to admire the medieval architectural structure, as well as the historic center of Porano with its imposing tuff walls. From Porano you enter Lazio through a track in the middle of a countryside in an environmentally suggestive plateau, in the greatest tranquility; then once in Lubriano, you can admire the church and the historic center. It is located on the slopes of a very deep ravine; on the other side of the calanco is Civita Bagnoregio. To go to Civita Bagnoregio, before starting, it is necessary to inquire about the state of the path that descends. Civita is on an ancient tuff spur very similar to the one where Lubriano stands. This is the most fascinating and well-traced path over time, but it is not always passable due to the continuous landslides. In this case, it is necessary to be accompanied by a local guide, under penalty of renouncing the descent and relative ascent to Civita. In this case you have to take the provincial road, asphalted, starting from the Town Hall of Lubriano.
