The Lazio region

Lazio is a central region of Italy. Rome is more or less in the middle of the region but Lazio (Latium) has numerous other attractions and would well repay a visit even if Rome did not exist. The region has many fascinating cities, several lakes, some beautiful scenery, good opportunities for country and hill walks and a coastline that is almost entirely beach, which is enhanced by hundreds of excellent fish restaurants. Communications are good, particularly going north-south.

The main A1 toll highway (Autostrada) from Florence to Naples provides good north-south communications. The A24 heads east from Rome to the mountains of the Abruzzo. Other important highways in northern Lazio are the A12, which follows the coast north in the direction of Pisa in Tuscany and the Cassia (and Cassia bis), which is the main road to Viterbo. Southern Lazio is served by the Pontina, which can get very crowded on summer weekends. There is a good rail network. Most routes are north-south via Rome rather than east-west. Bus services are also available, if infrequent.

Castelnuovo di Farfa

The Sabine Hills is an area just north of Rome in Lazio in Italy. Perhaps most famous because its population fell victim to the “Rape of the Sabine women” by Rome, the hills have some interesting small towns.

Farfa Abbey. Close to Fara in Sabina. Farfa Abbey used to control nearly all the nearby towns and villages. It was one of the most powerful Benedictine monasteries in Europe and played a major role in the power struggles between the Papacy and the Holy Roman Empire, opposing the power of the Papacy for centuries. The exact date of the foundation of the Abbey is uncertain. It was abandoned for a period and rebuilt around 680 AD. After a further reconstruction of the monastery during the Renaissance new shops were built around the monastery. These shops can still be seen today and the street names reflect the original uses of each street, for example "via di droghe e cere" (street of medicines and waxes), and "via di panni e sete" (street of cloths and silks). Note the stone slabs at the entrance to each shop which were used as counters by the merchants.

The village of Collevecchio

Roccantica has medieval fortifications, some interesting churches and, nearby, Monte Pizzuto, the highest peak of the Sabina, at 1288m, with a wonderful view. St Michael's Cave (La Grotta di San Michele) is a small cave chapel surrounded by the forests of Mount Tancia. There was a female figure sculpted from a stalactite in the cave, which unfortunately disappeared about thirty years ago.

Magliano Sabina is a small town next to the A1 Autostrada. The Archeological Museum has sections dedicated to the Bronze Age, the early Iron Age, the Sabine era, and the Hellenistic period. Tuesdays,Wednesdays and Fridays 09.00 - 12.00; Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays 09.00 - 12.00 and 15.00 - 18.00.

A car is pretty much necessary to explore the area.

"Lovely holiday"

We travelled with our 3 children and met with grandparents and aunt and uncle at Casale Macerine. The owners werehelpful and concerned about directions to the house. We arrived in Farfa in the dark and used a google map to navigate down a track, through a ford and very luckily my brother in law (whom we couldn't conact through mobile) was standing at the entrance to the house the second time we drove by! However my father-in-law was met by the owners earlier who directed him and he couldn't fault their helpfulness. Thank you! The house provided everything that we needed and the area was lovely to explore. My children loved going on creature hunts and found all sorts of insects and some porcupine quills, and enjoyed picking cherries. We got quite fond of some of the cats, but beware if you leave the door open they will sneak in and pinch any food that is left out. I would recommend bringing a paddling pool if travelling with children though, as the pool in Farfa is very expensive. Thank you.

Gentle and nice guests. We are glad that you enjoyed the house and the surroundings. next time we'll bring you a pool or anything you'll need. Thanks again!
