Gems of Italy – Ciociaria

It has no defined boundaries, but corresponds to roughly the current province of Frosinone.Ciociaria is a range of traditions and testimonies, of great artists, of natural beauty, medieval villages at the foot of the mountains, churches, dialects, legends, songs, dances and perfumes.
Visiting the Ciociaria is to retrace the history, in fact few territories collect in such a short space a similar amount of historical and artistic testimonies: from the thousand-year-
old and powerful polygonal walls of Alatri, Ferentino and Arpino, to the great Benedictine Abbeys of Montecassino, Casamari and Trisulti,
to the medieval villages of Anagni, Veroli and Fumone.
Nature offers pleasant landscape excursions, enjoying traditional dishes and products.
It definitely worth a visit!
