What to see in - Montefiascone.

Rocca dei Papi is the remains of the old Papal summer residence. At the top of the hill it provides a tremendous view of Lago Bolsena.

Montefiascone Cathedral is one of the earliest structures by Michele Sanmicheli. Dedicated to Saint Margaret (Santa Margherita), the cathedral was a ruin in 1330 and took three centuries to rebuild. Subsequently, in 1670, it suffered a serious fire, with repairs taking a further decade. The interior was elaborately restored in 1893.

 The town piazza is the place to see and be seen on a warm summer evening:

It will take you about 10 minutes drive from Villa Helena.
