60 km north of Rome, lies an undiscovered corner of northern Lazio, La  Sabina or the Sabine Hills, a fascinating territory, which perhaps more than any other area of central Italy, has preserved its original rural character. From here, the ancient Romans took their brides: ‘ The rape of the Sabine women’.

Although Sabina is relatively close to Rome, its tranquillity is juxtaposed with the frenetic pace of the city. The landscape is greener than many people expect and the patchwork of vineyards and olive groves make the scenery unmistakably Italian.  For travellers who like the less discovered and off the beaten track itineraries, this area of central Italy on the border of Umbria, will offer splendid scenery, tranquil roads without a single tour bus, rolling olive clad hills dotted with tiny medieval hilltop villages, and small hidden treasures to discover and savour.

Places to visit: Farfa Abbey, Roman villa of Cottanello, the Sanctuary of Vescovio, The olive oil museum in Castelnuovo of Farfa. The many charming hill top villages each with a  different  character. The 4 Franciscan Sanctuaries in the Valle Santo di Rieti.
