Virginia Woolf loved Caffarella, and so will you.

Virginia Woolf, considered one of the most important authors of the 20th century, wrote this after visiting Rome in 1927:

“I only wish to be allowed to stay here – for ever and ever – never see a soul. We rambled over the Campagna on Sunday. I suppose France is all right, and England is all right, but I have never seen anything as beautiful as this is. Figure us sitting in hot sunshine on the doorstep of a Roman ruin in a field with hawk-colored archways against a clear grape- colored sky, silvery mountains in the background.”
