Antica Via Clodia

The Via Clodia was an ancient Etruscan-Roman road.
His track starts in Rome and arrives in Saturnia crossing the province of Viterbo and Grosseto.
In the next posts entitled “Etruscan Routes” you will find some suggestions to start this fascinating journey that will bring you into contact with a world that existed 2,500 years ago.

Antica Via Clodia – Territory of Blera

The ancient Etruscan village of Plaise, today Blera, together with the sites of Grotta Porcina, San Giovenale and Luni sul Mignone, make up one of the most important finds in all of Tuscia.
A collection of necropolises, villages and palaces that will surprise for their location in areas of environmental value.
Luni sul Mignone is located along the abandoned section of the Capranica – Civitavecchia railway, now used for trekking, cycle tourism and can also be reached via a dirt road by car.
Nearby is an iron bridge that crosses the river Mignone which makes the landscape unique and very suggestive.

Antica Via Clodia – Marturanum Park of Barbarano R.

In the unmistakable landscape of southern Tuscia the Park manages and protects a set of ravines dug by torrents in the tuff and clay hills with woods and pastures. Thanks to the low population density of the area and the morphology of the places it is a wild area. It is very exciting to discover the traces that the Etruscan people left hidden in the woods.
The routes that we recommend to take, suitable for everyone, are those that lead to the Necropolis of S. Giuliano and the path of S. Simone. The presence of a stream will allow you to cool off and enjoy the beauty of places rich in archaeological finds and of an explosive nature.
