The Sabine Hills is an appealingly undiscovered niche of Italy, which—although blissfully lost in time—is an exceptionally convenient area to visit since the region is just north of Rome. We have suggested this itinerary as an “add on” to our Umbria itinerary (which precedes this one) since one flows gracefully into the other. However, you can just as easily reverse the route and start in Rome and include the Sabine Hills as you head north toward Umbria and Tuscany. This adventure takes you over winding, tranquil mountain roads into the Sabine Hills (or Sabina as it is often referred to), an idyllic area in the region of Lazio offering splendid scenery with rolling, olive-clad hills and tiny, medieval hilltop villages. This part of central Italy—perhaps more than any other—has preserved its original rural character, and, not withstanding its proximity to Rome, is one of the least populated parts of the country. A wonderful time to visit is spring when the countryside explodes in color with yellow broom and fields of sunflowers, accented by the silver green of the olive trees which produce some of Italy’s finest extra virgin olive oils.
NOTE: This itinerary is excerpted from the E-Book titles, Italy Hotels: Exceptional Places to Stay & Itineraries and Italy Bed & Breakfasts: Exceptional Places to Stay & Itineraries. You might want to consider the complete E-Books if you are considering any additional itineraries as there are eight for Italy (only seven available as individual E-Itineraries) and they are all duplicated in the more complete E-Books.
This E-Itinerary includes only recommendations (also excerpted from both the E-Book titles) for places to stay that are in close proximity to this featured itinerary route. This E-itinerary version has the added bonus that includes places we recommend from both Italy Hotels and Italy Bed & Breakfasts.
