Sabina is an enchanted and untouched region, north-east of Rome. It is a land of hills dotted with olive groves and oak woods, sheltered by the Apennines, and with many mediaeval villages, castles and monasteries.
When people abroad think of beautiful Italian countryside, they usually envisage Tuscany. Most of the world has yet to learn about this wonderful region just a few kilometres from Rome. Because of its extraordinary natural beauty, its unique character and its proximity to the eternal city, we like to say: “Sabina is cooler than Tuscany”.
Here in Sabina, you can find the oldest olive tree in Italy, a magnificent 2,700-year-old specimen known as The Big Olive Tree.
