General

Escape from the crowd to discover the beautiful surroundings of the Lazio region, you can spend unforgettable moments in Subiaco and its monasteries.

This morning we will depart Rome (around 8.30am suggested time) to explore the village of Subiaco and enjoy a visit of the Benedictine monasteries of the ‘Sacro Speco’ and ‘St. Scholastica’, the principal attractions in Subiaco.

The town in the province of Lazio is an excellent destination for a trip outside the usual patterns. you will discover the wonders of the Shrine of the Sacred Cave. Hidden, like a precious gem, between the rock walls of Mount Taleo near Subiaco, in the hinterland of Lazio, the Sanctuary of Sacro Speco overlooking the valley below. For almost a thousand years, this natural treasure and architectural preserves the mysteries of Benedictine spirituality and is a place of pilgrimage by the faithful and not. The “cave” alludes to the cave, which is still available, where the Young St. Benedict of Norcia spent three years of life as a hermit in the early sixth century. It was after that period of spiritual recollection that the saint founded the first monastic communities along the valley of the river Aniene, giving way to Western monasticism.

Spectacular collection of religious buildings. The lower monastery is dedicated to St. Scholastica, sister of Benedict, the saint who lived as a hermit in a cave around which will develop the upper monastery. Perched on multiple levels and decorated with admirable frescoes this place is still full of spirituality.

Subiaco is one of the Italy charms visitors with irresistible food and your tour driver will be happy to recommend some typical restaurants in the area for lunch, example, a little family run restaurant housed in the cellars of the Rocca (castle) of the Borgias where the famous Lucrezia was born.

At the end of the tour, your tour driver will transfer you back to your hotel or any other place of your convenience in Rome.

  • Full day Subiaco tour was amazing!! Picked up promptly from our accommodation. Our fantastic driver Livio was very friendly and knowledgeable as well as a lot of fun! He took us up to the Monasterio di San Benedetto and also to the Monasterio di Santa Scolastica. Then suggested a beautiful walk to Largo San Benedetto. He paced the day well, giving us more than enough time at each stop. After the full morning he had made reservations at a wonderful local restaurant (the most delicious pasta we’ve ever eaten) and was very accommodating driving us to an ATM when we needed one. Overall, it was the best day of our trip to Rome and well worth it! Alison R
