Some ten minutes’ drive from Capena, across the River Tiber, lies the start of La Sabina – the Sabine Hills region. The hills themselves can be seen as you drive down the hill towards the Tiberina. Many of the unsung towns and villages in the Sabina are beautifully kept and well worth a visit. The rolling hills and rugged countryside are reminiscent of Yorkshire, but with good weather.The flora and fauna are very abundant and varied, and organic food production is also popular in the area. For more energetic visitors, the Sabine Hills are a good walking area with plenty of interesting places to visit.
