La Sabina is one of the most beautiful and still little known places in Italy. The charm of its medieval villages, good food, the mountains, the paths of S. Francesco and S. Benedetto and many naturalistic places of great beauty.
Sabina, linked to a very ancient past, is a historical-geographical region located in central Italy, bordering to the east with eastern Lazio, the region of Cicolano and Abruzzo, to the north with Umbria and the Marche and to the south with southern Lazio. 66% of its geographical extension is now attributable to the Province of Rieti, while the remainder occupies some areas of the Province of Rome, some areas of Umbria and, finally, the Aterno Valley, located to the north of the Province of L’Aquila, in Abruzzo.
The ancient Sabina is therefore limited to an agglomeration of three regions and five provinces, for a total of 97 municipalities distributed over a mainly mountainous territory, distributed between the Reatini mountains and the Tiber valley. In the middle of this area, the Sabine Mountains emerge, reliefs of modest altitude that cross the entire territory of the region, with the exception of a single flat area, the Piana Reatina, located at the foot of the city of Rieti.
The arrangement of the Sabine Mountains divides the region into two large areas:
Alta Sabina: the part comprising the territories located to the north-east, ie the entire province of Rieti with the exception of Cicolano, the Umbrian and Abruzzo areas;
The Bassa Sabina: includes the remaining territories further south; those linked to the province of Rome, delimit the part of the Bassa Sabina which is conventionally known as the Roman Sabina.
