Borgo Gaia Sabina

Activities

There is a great number of things to do, once you are in the Sabina. Besides the wonderful mountain biking, hiking, cycling and walking trails this region has to offer, there are at least nine golf courses in the greater Roman area. Horseback riding is available right around the corner and so are tennis courts.

Even though the olive presses are operative only from October to January, guided tours are available year round.

Yoga, massages, cooking classes, markets are among the great variety of activities available and ensure that each person shall find something to do to make this vacation unforgettable.

For a day at the beach, we recommend the beaches of Fregene and Tarquinia, the latter having amazing Etruscan tombs to visit. Both an hour away by car.

For downhill and cross country skiing we recommend Monte Terminillo close to Rieti, the capital of the province Lazio (1 hour) and Campo Felice in Abruzzo (1.5 hour).

For serious shopping, apart of course from the shops of Rome, we suggest: the Monte Soratte mall (20 minutes) and Porta di Roma (35 minutes), each directly on motorway A1.

For culture, besides the eternal city of Rome, Orvieto with the famous Duomo; the spectacular gardens of Tivoli; the garden with scary sculptures of Bomarzo; the monthly antique market in Arezzo; the excavations of Ostia Antica; Sienna and the thermal springs of Viterbo are wonderful cultural locations. Pompeii is a 3 hour drive, but an unforgettable experience.

For dining: there are over 25 restaurants in the vicinity of the borgo for delicious local meals for modest prices. Making reservations for pranzo (lunch) on Saturday or Sunday is recommended.

All year round the little villages offer festivals for a number of reasons. In August each town celebrates its own Ferragosto festival, the one in Roccantica is priceless.
