David Farley on the New York Times wrote a piece about the local hot springs in which he compares the wild, free ones with the more luxurious SPAs. Interesting and rather amusing, it is well worth a read.
The local hot springs are also mentioned by Lee Marshall , the famous British journalist who has been living in Italy since 1984. In his article, published on The Guardian, he lists the top 10 things to do in Lazio so, besides some relaxing time at the thermal pools, there is also room for another nine activities to consider. An excellent read to get ideas for day trips outside Viterbo.
The Chief Editor of Minor Sights, dedicated a whole feature to Viterbo’s profferli, the unique, external staircases that you can spot in Viterbo’s medieval quarter. A quick, interesting read with lots of beautiful photos.
