The city has certain architectural aspects of Farnesian origin such as the fifteenth century Palazzo Farnese, famous for having accommodated Pier Luigi’s family, father of the future pope, Paul III and Giulia Bella and the Farnesian Road, ordered by Cardinal Alessandro as the new thoroughfare into the city’s historic centre (today’s Via Cavour, rich in gentilizi buildings of the period : the Brugiotti Building hosts a private museum of medieval and Renaissance ceramics). Moreover, Viterbo is famous for its rare and well kept thirteenth century historic centre (Quartiere S. Pelligrino) and for having been a papal seat (the famous Palazzo Papale, the Papal Palace). In addition there are archaeological museums, sacred art and churches of great artistic value. Not far from Viterbo is the Etruscan - Roman town of Ferento, with a well kept theatre used for open air performances. There are various Etruscan necropolis (Castel d’Asso, Norchia). There is the beautiful Villa Lante of Bagnaia, with prestigious Italian gardens.
Of particular interest are the thermal baths, supplied with sulphurous waters springs from the Bulicame, that offer a first class service even for the treatment of respiratory and osteoarticular problems and for general fitness.
Among the special tourist attractions is the transportation of the Macchina di S. Rosa, an imposing luminous tower that is carried by 100 "facchini" (3rd September) and the Antiques Show (November). From June to September theatrical Renaissance plays are held in Viterbo.
