Soriano nel Cimino, Italy

We visited  Soriano nel Cimino twice and stayed at friends house.

Soriano is in Lazio, about one hour north of RomeSoriano is built on a hill dominated by the Castello Orsini.  It is a medieval town and the narrow, winding, cobble stone streets lend themselves to some wonderful exploring. The large central Piazza is the hub of village life.  

There are several churches and church bells ring frequently. The town is built on a hilltop and has winding narrow roads and lots of steps. The train track actually goes under the town and out the other side of the hill.

Every year, during the first two weeks of October, Soriano nel Cimino hosts a festival that surrounds the chestnut harvest. This festival is done on a large scale, and attracts thousands of people from surrounding areas, including Rome. The two main events of the Sagra are the Palio and the Corteo Storico.

 Il Castello Orsini-Cesi
(SEC. XII-XVII)
di Sant'Angelo Romano

Dall'alto del borgo di Sant'Angelo Romano, a pochi passi da Roma, il castello Orsini-Cesi domina l'agro romano e la bassa Sabina.
Dai suoi spalti merlati, lo sguardo arriva ai castelli romani, ai monti Cornicolani, a Roma e fino al mare.
Un angolo di cultura, bellezza e nobiltà.
