Info about Montefiascone
Montefiascone is the largest town overlooking Lake Bolsena, about 30 km from Orvieto and 15 from Viterbo. Hotel Corso suggest you to visit this town of Etruscan origin because the attractions are many indeed: there are beautiful and immaculate shores of the lake, the Cathedral of Santa Margherita that was built by Antonio da Sangallo il Giovane, the church of St. Flavian, that was the center of life and of the town in Roman times, the famous Papal Fortress, which dominates the town. Also worth seeing are mausoleums, cemeteries and many tombs of Etruscan and Roman origins.
