A nice walk in a quiet atmosphere but you have to be able to walk in steep streets

The town is very clean and you can see several interesting places like the place that apparently is... read more

I have travelled to Rieti a number of times as is one of the larger towns close to the Sabine Hills, where I live. I have always appreciated the beauty of the historic centre and how alive it feels. It has an amazing 16 km bike/walking trek that takes you near the river and within the historic centre of Rieti and its surrounding historic walls. The central piazza is large and has many beautiful historic buildings within the nearby streets. The real hidden gem within the historic centre that my husband and I discovered the other day, is under the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta. The church itself has been redecorated but has some original frescos on the walls. The real treasure, however is found in the crypt, under the altar and below ground level. It dates back to 1100's and has beautiful frescos on the walls, plus amazing and intact archways plus a decorated central ceiling. It is like walking back in time and completely peaceful. If you go to the historic centre of Rieti, don't miss this hidden medieval crypt.

Rieti is a hidden gem. The competition with Rome and its position in the sabine mountains result in few tourists vistiting the place. It is surely off the beaten track for international visitors, which makes it all the more interesting and authentic.

Beware the midday closing - everything (including the churches) is shut between about 1 and 4.
But good selection of churches and shopping around via Roma, and attractive river running through, make Rieti good for a day trip

Not certain if Rieti is classified as a small city or a large town but mostly squeezes itself within its medieval walls. The old and modern blend comfortably with each other and wandering around the clean streets or along the river is a pleasurable experience. Parking is easy and there is much to do with churches, theatre, Roman remains, eateries, and modern shopping area to name but a few.
