"Calcata" Calcata by janchan

Calcata Travel Guide: 1 reviews and 20 photos

Directly from the middle age...

Only an hour from Rome, a real jewel directly from the middle age... the extra-small village of Calcata (800 inh.). Sited in the Treja river valley, on a rock cliff.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:No cars, quiet, magic

    Gian Luca, Calcata is a beautiful place huh. Its amazing what they did in those days on a simple 'Sperone du Tufo Rosso'. I am amazed to see Clacata on VT.. I thought it was a secret! Aaron

    Your pictures as usual are perfect!!! I guess the true meaning of travelling is visiting such places, where you can really feel the country, megapolices are more or less the same everywhere....
