I just took a sketching workshop in Civita, and it was fabulous! However, the tiny town is so overrun with tourists during the day, it is hard to really appreciate the preserved beauty of its natural community and architecture.

I just spent a week staying in the town myself, in late November, and the crowds had died down quite a bit by then. I’d highly recommend visiting Civita in off-season, and not the warmer months. I’ve seen photos of the footbridge during the summer and it’s overrun. But by late fall/winter, it’s calmed down considerably. Definitely still some tour groups coming during the day, but much less crowded. Another option is to visit early in the morning or later in the evening. The peak times seem to be the middle of the day.
