Best Day Trips from Rome with Italy Vacation Specialists
Great Day Trips from Rome

Rieti (RI)

Cities and Towns in Lazio


Rieti is both a province and a town in the region of Lazio which borders the region of Abruzzo . Located north-east of Rome,  visiting this area makes for a great stop for those who want to experience the region of Abruzzo  where many Italian descendants have family heritage.  This is a truly spectacular area in central Italy which offers those in search of what remains to date, truly Italian, have many many delights in store for them.  Incredible culinary delights including the white and black truffle, many varieties of mushrooms, wild boar, rabbit, unique cheese and some of Italy's fines wines all abide here - so close to Rome and yet a world away.  

This is a destination with an incredible history,  home to elegant patrician town houses, some belonging to ancient royal families, ornate churches and more than a touch of classical architecture, this latter left by the ancient Romans.  "Rieti is a beautiful town of aristocratic form", thus the writer Guido Piovene - Italian journalist and writer, described the capital of the Sabina in the 1950's. 

The Roman bridge which traverses the Velino river is one of the symbols of Rieti. The town's most impressive works of architecture are grouped around the two piazzas:Piazza Battisti and Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II. In Piazza San Rufo there is a stone which indicates Rieti as center of Italy.

Dominating the historic center, Palazzo Comunale is arguably the most important of the town's buildings although Rieti, town in which numerous popes and even St Francis of Assisi resided, is famous, above all, for its religious edifices. From the cathedral, baptistery, and bishop's palace in the center of town, to the convents of Fonte Colombo and Santa Maria della Foresta, situated just a few kilometers beyond the city walls.

To visit in the vicinity of Rieti there are not only a number of centuries old places of worship, but also the stunningly beautiful Marmore falls and the 2,216 m high Terminillo mountain, this latter a favourite destination among winter sports fans.

Client Testimonials

As a travel agent, but also a traveler to Italy, thee is no other company I would recommend than the Italy Vacation Specialists. Not only do they really care about what they are doing, they also really know Italy and try to educate many people about ways they can best see the country and not fall into tourist traps.

I have been on 4 trips with the IVS team, firstly when they did my first 2 trips for me and then when I went on their Fam trips for Travel Agents which are educational trips for agents. Nobody does Italy like the IVS team and what I have learned is you can actually save a lot of money by working with this company.
