Enjoy a unique excursion to Ciociaria, a region of beautiful landscapes and fascinating little villages just 50 miles away from Rome.
The towns we have carefully select on this tour are Fiuggi, Fumone & Anagni.
Your chauffeur/guide will welcome you at your hotel or any other place of your convenience at 8.00am (suggested time).
We will drive then for about 90 minutes straight to the region of Ciociaria where we will plan our first stop on the hill top town of Fiuggi.
Fiuggi is a medieval village, perched on a hill and surrounded by chestnut trees and green spaces.
There you can visit the Anticolana source and Source Boniface VIII. You can walk in a park of over 1000 sqm, littered with precious water fountains. Fiuggi water is known since ancient Rome for the healing properties, particularly for the treatment of kidney stones and urinary tract infections. Drink water directly from the source is the best way to enjoy its benefits.
Fiuggi Terme, also known as Fiuggi Fonte, is one of the most famous spa resorts of Italy, inhabited since the times of the ancient Romans for the curative properties of its waters. In order to get the best way to be caught up in the spirit of Fiuggi is to explore the maze of little streets climbing up through the village.
After Fiuggi we’ll descend to the small village of Fumone, a picturesque little willage also built on top of a hill.
The highlight of Fumone is certainly the ancient Castle (highly recommended to visit), over a thousand years old it is located in the center of a fortress and it is surrounded by a boundary wall which is fitted with self-defense equipment.
For lunch your chauffeur/guide will be happy to suggest some typical restaurants for a traditional meal in the area.
Before returning to Rome we will stop in Anagni, known also as the City of Popes for having given birth to four popes (Innocent III, Alexander IV, Pope Gregory IX and Pope Boniface VIII) and for a long time been the papal residence and headquarters. We suggest a short visit of the Cathedral Santa Maria Assunta. After Anagni we will return to Rome.
