The jewels of Sabina
In the heart of Italy, straddling Umbria and Lazio, the Tiber flows and creates a gentle valley, a treasure chest of historical and naturalistic gems to explore at a very slow, unhurried pace, so as not to miss a single corner of this magnificent land.
You will find countless enchanting villages. It is impossible to choose the most beautiful among centres like Casperia, recognised by the Bandiera arancione, the fairy-tale Stimigliano, in the province of Rieti, Roccantica, home of legends and folklore, Capena, an important Sabine site, and many others. We recommend visiting the Benedictine Abbey of Farfa, a jewel of 6th-century religious architecture.
There is no shortage of breath-taking landscapes, such as those of the Nazzano Tevere-Farfa Nature Reserve or the Monte Soratte Nature Reserve, which combines natural beauty with the fascination of archaeological excavations.
The Via Francigena passes through the Tiber Valley, where there is a dense network of paths to travel on foot, bicycle or horseback. Between stops on your hike, you can stop to recharge your batteries by sampling the local food and wine delicacies.
