Our plan was to visit the two charming towns Montefiascone and Bolsensa at the lake Bolsena, a lake of volcanic origin. By accident, we stepped into one of the most important holy festivities the “Corpus Domini” also called “Infiorata”. In both towns the locals decorated their streets with long flower carpets in which later a religious procession took place. It was absolutely fascinating with how much passionate work the inhabitants are preparing and celebrating this christian solemnity.
The first sight we visit on our road trip is Tarquinia, a town of great importance and history regarding the civilization of Italy. Our next trip brings us to the mystical park of the monsters in Bomarzo, where a huge garden with grotesque but fascinating statues is awaiting us.
