Civita di Bagnoregio, Italy

The Etruscans founded Civita more than 2,500 years ago, building the walled city atop a hill made of volcanic tuff. Thanks to its isolation—the only access is via the long walkway seen in this photo—Civita has been largely unaffected by modern developments. And by modern developments, we mean the Renaissance and everything that followed. In winter, as few as 12 residents remain in the city, but in summertime, seasonal inhabitants arrive to accommodate the tourists who come to see this time capsule of a village in central Italy.
