Capodimonte, is a small town on the southern shores of the majestic lake Bolsena in northern Lazio and nestled between Tuscany to the north, Umbria to the east, Rome to the south and the Mediterranean to the west.
I know that there is also Capodimonte porcelain and a Capodimonte Museum in Naples. Some people I’ve met, know about the Naples Capodimonte, but not the Lazio one. Hence my idea to write this specific post about this quaint town.
Although it is hard to know where to start as I am not looking at the place with fresh eyes. In the past I was one of the residents. My school run involved dropping off my kids at elementary school until we moved into our house and then they caught the school bus.
In a way I wish I had taken more photos of the town and absorbed more of its atmosphere whilst I was there.
I can tell you that when I was living there I was glad for the town that during the summer months the numbers of people multiplied by many, but was grateful that during the colder months the residents got the village back.
This time of year, it is quiet in town.
I’ve been in two minds in the past about promoting the area to more people as it really is unspoilt and mostly not overrun by great numbers of people. I must admit though, I think it would be nice to see more English speaking people visit and discover this area.
So I delved into the archives to find some of the posts I have written on the town and here are some of the posts I found.
