The Lazio region

It is 20 mins from the medieval papal city of Viterbo, 40 mins from scenic Orvieto with its spectacular cathedral, 40 mins from the beautiful Lake of Bolsena, 1 hour from the Lazio/Tuscan seaside and an hour north of Rome. It is situated in beautiful countryside, very similar to neighbouring Umbria and Tuscany but far less touristy. Florence (90mins by rail) and Sienna are a 2 hour drive. Soriano itself is a very friendly local market town with a wonderful historic medieval citadel and castle, all the necessary amenities and some excellent reasonably priced restaurants. Lots of good eating in surrounding towns. Rome is easily accessible by car or train (35mins from Orte). The area is known for its many thermal springs. Nearby are the

Soriano nel Cimino

We are on the borders of Northern Lazio, Umbria and Tuscany. Soriano is a lovely town with spectacular views and a medieval citadel. Very friendly local people. There is a famous chestnut festival (really a medieval pageant) in the first 2 weeks of October. The Cimini mountains are a beautiful area of forest around the crater of an extinct volcano in which sits the Lago di Vico. La Fagetta is at the summit and has wonderful views, walks on nature paths and an excellent restaurant! Nearby is the medieval papal city of Viterbo with it's many festivals and thermal hot springs. Also the Lago di Bolsena is 35 mins away - excellent views, beaches boating and restaurants! Rome is an hours drive away or less by rail - arguably the most fabulous and interesting city in the world. Just over an hours drive to Tivoli - Hadrian's Palace - a huge area of Roman ruins - fascinating. We are 40 mins from the famous Cathedral city of Orvieto. The coast is less than hours drive away at Tarquinia or Sant'Agostino - 1 and a half hours to the Tuscan coast, 2 hours to either Florence or Sienna.
