Strolling along via Roma, the city’s main street full of beautiful shops and historic palazzos, it is hard to imagine that below the street level there is an extraordinary world waiting to be discovered , consisting of the sturdy arches of the Roman viaduct. This work, built in the third century B.C., was created to bring the street up to a level high enough to avoid flooding and Via Salaria becoming a swamp. This was the ancient salt route entering town and leading to the forum in todays piazza Vittorio Emanuele II. The structure consists of grandiose roman vaults, incorporated into a few noble residences, reminiscent of the city of Rieti’s past. Guided tours are often organized in loco upon request, even for small groups.
Our tour guide, Rita - a native of Rieti, provided an informative and interesting dialogue of the underground structures lying beneath the busy streets of Rieti. The immense space and history from its early Roman beginnings to its use as a bomb shelter during the war brought the tour to life in a meaningful way. The use of some of the area as an art installation showing how music can be created from everyday items was very interesting.
A return visit in two years time to see what further exploration and reconstruction has taken place would be very worthwhile.

There was a trail of murals/ paintings on the walls by various artist but this did nothing to improve our initial impression on arriving in the village: everything was too clean, too white, too perfect. There was no atmosphere despite the fact there was a wedding taking place whilst we were there. Very disappointed.

We passed the sign several times on the way to other Saint Francis sights the the Rieti area. We finally made a decision to stop and glad we did. Well preserved among the many Franciscan churches and sanctuaries in the area.

The Cathedral is worth a visit. Rieti is a city surrounded by ancient walls. Some work going on in the centre but still lots to see. Unfortunately the underground doesn't open for visits very often so best to check beforehand. Take a look at the shops in Via Roma, stop off at one of many bars or restaurants. Piazza S.Rufo is said to be the centre of Italy.

This is an artificial lake created in 1940 when the Dam was built. It was done in order to save the Cicolano Vally from being flood by the Salto River. You can park the car by the side of the road and walk carefully to the dam. We can drive uphill and get a splendid view of the lake.

This place has an amazing 20 thousand square metre rose garden named Vacunae Rosae with over 6 thousand rose bushes and more than 5 thousand different varieties.
I really suggest to visit it if you love nature and good food. In fact this place also host a double Michelin star chef’s restaurant, where you can taste high-quality organic dishes prepared in a contemporary style. All the organic products come from the on-site allotment.
I really suggest to visit it!

Only an hour drive away from Rome, Monte Terminillo is a great place to escape the crowded and noisy capital. A perfect place for hiking (from easy to hard trails), you can even see wild horses, eagles and other rare animals. Season for hiking is May to September. If you feel more comfortable with skiing or snowboarding, the winter season starts in December (check snow reports prior to go). A couple of Hotels and B&B's are available during the main seasons.

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 is local cuisine, fresh ingredients and always friendly service, even when you only have 5 words of Italian. This is not Rome and few speak English.
