There's more to the Farfa Abbey than the church itself. They've built up a whole little town outside with market stands, shops and cafes.
Follow signs and ask locals how to arrive - DO NOT FOLLOW GOOGLE MAPS! It will take you on a country...More
This is my number #1 spot for a day tour! The village of Farfa is tiny..only one street really but a huge basilica where weddings are booked back to back. Rumor has it, that it used to be the Popes Summer Home. There is a...More
The Abbey with its chruch is a jewel, the museum was a disappointment - entry only with guided tours in Italian, which focus on the history in front of painted scenes designed for school classes, but skip the best parts of the museum.
The abbey church is beautiful and clearly historically important. I loved the way that, when restoration removed the render from the façade, they've exposed lumps of ancient carving (sarcophagi) used in the building. Unfortunately although the church is free, access to the abbey is only...More
A nice hot sunny September day spent here. Plenty of car park space. We wandered round the abbey and a book fair that was on. There's a decent café for elevensies and a restaurant where we had a good lunch - my sister loved her...More

In the Sabine Hills approximately one hour from Rome is this beautiful Abbey of St. Mary in Farfa. The Catholic church is beautiful with mosaic tiled floors and pulpit. I was told later no photos in the church. It also closes at 1 p.m. This...More

After mass we walked through the entire complex and checked out their store full of wonderful honeys.

By bus or find a private tour....Do you live here? I’m at Villa Sofia about 20 min other side of Salaria. Are you living here or are you flexible to stay overnight up here? If you take train to Fara Sabina I can pick you up for a day tour? You could stay the night at Villa Sofia. And you could try the wonderful inexpensive dinners or lunches as well. Look me up at Villa Sofia or IM me at Gay Erlanger Davis please & we can talk about a lower price? 349 7622194 is my cell here. Ciao, Letizia
