FIELD TRIP AROUND ROME: CERVARA

Cervara di Roma is a small medieval village, situated about 50 kilometers (30 miles) from Rome. Since the ancient time, the village has been called The artist’s town, because it has always been a famous destination for artists who travel around the Italian country. Its stunning natural environment, the ancient and fascinating churches and the castle where visitors would be astonished by the view on the surrounding valley. Cervara is considered a can’t-miss stop for travelers around the center of Italy, mainly for two reasons: it is the front-door of the Natural Regional Park of Monti Simbruini, the biggest protected area of Lazio; the presence of La scalitana degli artisti (the Staircase of Artists), a number of sculpture, murals, paintings and poems carved on the rocks which form a long staircase that leads visitors from the valley up to the village.
