Rieti is the ancient capital of the Sabina district and its territory is set in a beautiful natural mountain scenery, full of testimonies related to St. Francis of Assisi.
Located in Lazio, in central Italy, on the slopes of the Sabine and Reatini mountains, the province of Rieti has a predominantly mountainous territory.
An important center since ancient times, Rieti is rich in testimonies from both the Roman and the Middle Ages, a period in which the city was a free Municipality and then the residence of Popes.
The Reatini Mountains, and the top of Mount Terminillo, surround and dominate Rieti.
This make this city the ideal starting point for excursions and visits to a territory rich, like few others, of protected natural oases, castles, fortresses and Franciscan sanctuaries.
Among the others, the Natural Reserve of the Reatini Lakes stands out.
It’s a place of particular environmental value, with both the Lake Lungo and Lake Ripasottile.
Here, the flora and fauna are protected and bird watching activities are easy: in particular, it’s not easy to spot the gray heron and the Tachybaptus ruficollis, that locals call “tuffetto”.
The area is rich in waterways, including the rivers Velino, Salto and Turano and numerous lakes that dot the territory.
These include the Lago del Salto, one of the largest reservoirs in Lazio.
Located about 535 meters above sea level, it’s particularly evocative thanks to its luxuriant vegetation and the countries that surround it.
Furthermore, both the lake of Turano and the lake of Scandarello offer splendid landscapes too.
They are immersed in the scenery of the Monti della Laga, in the Amatrice basin.
In short, the province of Rieti combines harmonious history, archeology, nature, good food, sport and relaxation.
