Viterbo (Lazio)

Viterbo is an ancient city in the Lazio region of central Italy, the capital of the province of Viterbo. Apart from agriculture, the main resources of Viterbo's area are pottery, marble, and wood. The town is home to the Italian gold reserves, an important Academy of Fine Arts, the University of Tuscia, and the Italian Army's Aviation Command headquarters and training centre. It is located in a wide thermal area, attracting many tourists from the whole of central Italy. Viterbo's historic center is one of the best preserved medieval towns of central Italy. Many of the older buildings (particularly churches) are built on top of ancient ruins, recognizable by their large stones, 50 centimeters to a side. Viterbo is unique in Italy for its concentration of 'profferli', external staircases that were a frequent feature of medieval houses. The San Pellegrino quarter has an abundance of them, reflecting an architectural style that is unique to the town and the nearby region.

@Spott2940 asks:

We will be traveling to Rome in late April and will be spending 3 months in Italy in 2021.  We would love to meet someone for coffee while we are in Rome just to talk about life in Italy as an expat.  We are considering moving to Italy and are doing our research.  Anyone interested in meeting up?
