The Castle makes some parts available, such as: outside there are the hanging garden areas, which take 480 sq.m, and inside there are some different dimension rooms. You will find a unique environment, full of charm and romance that will be a lovely background for your wedding pictures.

It's possible to organize an Outdoor Event:

Welcome Cocktail, drinking and exploring the garden spaces, that spread over different heights, served with buffet, in respect of the Umbrian tradition.

The Panoramic Terrace lets you sit for the courses served at the table (85 sits) and lets you enjoy the amazing view of the Tiber Valley, the hanging garden with its fountains and the majestic Roman Tower, which overlooks the castle.

The scenic Pompeian acts as a frame for the garden and, because of its fountain made with Carrara Marble, it's perfect for the cake cutting. This fancy structure is limited in high by a crenellated Solarium from which you can admire a lovely panorama. It's the perfect place to use for the musical arrangement. A pebbled flight of steps guides you at the second floor of the garden where the stately Roman tower dominates.

It's possible to organize a Indoor Event too:

Refined Welcome Cocktail, inside the roman rooms and the vault (basement), served by the waiters, in a very suggestive context. The upper rooms let the guests to sit, for the served courses: the marble saloon (50 sits more or less), 'belvedere' room (40 sits more or less), with an amazing view of the valley.

TWO THOUSAND YEARS OF HISTORY

The small 'Tempovita' Castle and the entire medieval village that surrounds it arised and expanded over the centuries around the imposing Squared Tower, whose construction dates back to the first half of the first century A.C. The Tower of San Vito was part of a long series of "look-out", erected on fortified forts placed on the top of the sub-Apennine ridge from Rome to the north of the Empire. These towers, of which San Vito is the only one still present, with the exception of some ruins, were regularly used with an ingenious system of "transmission": reflecting mirrors during the day and fires during the night. The Emperor-philosopher Marcus Aurelius could thus keep himself informed about what was happening from Rome to the Brenner and in the provinces of Aquitaine, Germany and Rezia.

Going over the centuries, we find a very hard used Tower of San Vito at the time of Charle Magne, who only in this way could receive, in Aquisgrana, almost in "real time", the appeal of Pope Leo III and thus succeed in saving him from the conspiracy of 799. In the late Middle Ages the 'curtis Sancti Viti' became a "fief" after the purchase of the Scotti family in 1279.

Even today the Village dominates the plain from Valtiberina to Valnerina, used as a sentry between Orte and Narni. From the highway of sun you can see the noble and robust tower surrounded by the composite castle with its crenellated walls.

In 1989 Professor Roberto L. Pancari discovered the small village of San Vito. A life dedicated to poetry, journalism, art and music; traveler by nature and work, deep knower of the world and of many languages. He did not imagine that within those centuries-old walls a timeless paradise was hidden, which immediately captured him so deeply, to stop him, make him leave his works and dedicate to it the last twenty years of his life, through a long restoration.

Today he is gone and his ashes are kept in the chapel in the garden, but his sons Massimiliano and Selene with their mother Marilia devote themselves with the same passion to make 'Tempovita' Castle 'alive'.
