At less than one hour drive from Rome we will be in Sabina, authentic and unspoilt territory, untouched by mass tourism, perfect for a day trip.
The landscape is one of rolling, olive tree covered foothills, rising to steeper, forested mountain sides, scattered with medieval hill towns, castles and monasteries. The Sabina has been inhabited and cultivated for thousands of years, archaeological remains show that the area was used in Roman times to produce food for the capital.
In our tour of Sabina, we can combine CULTURAL aspects and FOOD.
