The Surroundings

The villa is the ideal starting point to explore the interesting surroundings: abbeys and monasteries, Valle Reatina with his Santuari Francescani and Abbazia di Farfa. But also medieval villages like Tarano, Casperia, Colle Vecchio, Orvieto, Bagnireggio and Narni with its interesting underground tour. Travelling the panoramic secondary roads, one can see the lakes of Bracciano and Bolsena,Vico or reach Turano, as well as Lake Piedaluca together with the impressive waterfalls of Marmore just outside Rieti.

Rome is also close by. Go by car via the Al (Autostrada del Sole) and within an hour you're in the centre of the city, where parking is made easy underneath the Villa Borghese. Even more convenient it is to take the train from the nearby Stimigliano train station to Rome Ostiense station. Within an hour it takes you to the center of Rome.
It is an extraordinary experience to wonder around a metropolis like Rome during the day and return that same evening to Casa Elide to enjoy the tranquility of the house the pool and its surroundings.
