Are you looking for a break from the chaos and bustle of Rome?
Take a day trip out of Rome and explore the unique medieval village of Calcata and the surrounding area of Treja Natural Park. The village of Calcata was abandoned in the 1930’s after the government deemed the cliffs on which it is perched as unstable. Then, in the late ’60s and early ’70s, artists and bohemians began gravitating to the village, drawn by its rugged beauty and a mythical energy that some say emanates from Calcata’s 150-foot-high volcanic stump. Today it is home to a wacky community of about 100 artists, bohemians, aging hippies and New Age types. The surrounding area of Treja Regional Natural Park with its deep gorges and unique natural beauty is a perfect getaway to enjoy nature and partake in some landscape photography.
