If you drive down Via Salaria from Rome, it will take you straight down to Rieti, through the hills Della Sabina. It's short of a leisurely 2 hour drive where you can stop anywhere along the road to buy local olive oil that you won't...More

This is still an undiscovered part of Italy just an hour north of Rome. It is stunningly beautiful, with hill top towns that have stood for centuries, olive groves and winding paths going down around the hills. It certainly rivals Tuscany for natural vistas. Food...More
