Just after the Milvian Bridge on Via Flaminia, the Via Cassia begins.This is undoubtedly one of the most important consular roads which connected the capital to Florence. Along the Via Cassia: the Acqua Traversa estate with Villa Manzoni, and the Invioletella Park. A little further on we encounter the Tomb of Nero. The area's most interesting site from an archaeological and historical point of view is undoubtedly the Etruscan city of Veii. After a stop at Isola Farnese, we arrive to the town of Campagnano, and Formello. From here, crossing the Via Cassia towards the south, we find Lake Martignano. We find ourselves in the Baccano Valley. A few kilometres further on, we come to another tiny and delightful lake, Monterosi. From here we turn towards Ronciglione. The route here gives us two options: the present Via Cassia, passing the city of Sutri, or the Via Cassia Cimina, which traverses the magnificent natural scenery of the Cimini Hills. Ronciglione preserves its sixteenth century character intact. Down in the valley lies the enchanting Lake Vico. To the north, in the Cimini Hills, the town of San Martino al Cimino is extremely interesting from an urban and historical point of view, From here it is not far to Viterbo. On the way we can visit the Etruscan and Roman archaeological sites of Acquarossa and Ferentum, and the vast expanse of Lake Bolsena, the biggest lake in Lazio. From Montefiascone, you arrive to see the towns of Marta, Capodimonte, Bisenzio and the two islands Martana and Bisentina. From Lake Bolsena, Via Cassia heads directly north towards its original destination, Florence: the ancient city of Florentia. But before it arrives in Tuscany, there is the city of Acquapendente.
