This has to be one of the loveliest spots in the countryside around Rome. Well preserved in every aspect, Italy as it was.

Farfa is a delightful, if a bit touristic, place to visit when you need a break from the crowds of Rome. It's set in green hills and surrounded by woods. The small 'borgo' is dominated by the abbey, which you can take a guided tour...More

We enjoyed the entire complex at the Abby. Of special interest was being able to attend Sunday Mass there. It was wonderful. After mass we walked through the entire complex and checked out their store full of wonderful honeys.

Our dear friend in Rome took us for an afternoon trip outside Rome to see the Abbey of Farfa. It was a lovely drive in the beautiful countryside. The Abbey is a very fascinating place, full of peacefulness and simplicity, as simple as the Benedectine...More

In the Sabine hills to the north east of Rome there is wonderful quaint town of Farfa which is basically an old monsatery (but still in use) and a few streets around it. Beautiful area, nice atmosphere - a great place to spend an afternoon...More
