panoramica di Fiuggi

 

The luxuriant nature, fresh mountain air and unique properties of thermal water along with hospitality of the local population make Fiuggi an ideal spot for a relaxing and health-restoring holiday.

Due to its miraculous water, Fiuggi is one of the most famous thermal spa resorts in Europe. Natural mineral water has beneficial effects on the whole body, and its curative properties have been approved by scientific medicine and documented since ancient times. Thermal resort is made up of two springs: Fonte di Bonifacio VIII, named in honor of the Pope, a frequent visitor to these places, and Fonte Anticolana. At your leisure you can explore the charming old town, that strikes about its tidiness and cleanliness. Among the alternating narrow cobblestone streets and cozy little alleys, steep stairs and tiny squares you will enjoy views of fabulous houses and picturesque corners of rare beauty. Located within the walls of the historic center of Fiuggi, the oldest church of St. Peter treasures the Roman school paintings dating from 1600. For those wishing to explore cultural and historic heritage of our region, there are many suggested itineraries that will lead travelers through the perfectly preserved medieval towns, perched on green mountain tops, one more amazing than the other. The town of Alatri – famous for its megalithic acropolis and walls, Anagni – “the city of the popes” and important medieval centre of political and religious life in the region of Lazio, the haunted castle of Fumone with its mysteries – these are just a few of interesting places, that will let visitors immerse themselves in an atmosphere of the distant past. Definitely worth a visit such picturesque pilgrimage sites as: the Monastery of St. Benedict in Subiaco, that of Montecassino, the Cistercian Abbey of Casamari and Carthusian monastery Certosa di Trisulti.

Fiuggi resort provides everything you need for outdoor activities and various sports: 18-hole golf course, Olympic-sized pool, soccer fields, tennis, volleyball and basketball courts. Thrill seekers will be able to practice hang gliding, mountain climbing, trekking, rafting and sport fishing.

No less important component of the local cultural values is its simple peasant cuisine, based only on natural locally sourced products. Entirely hand-made dishes feature a distinctive aroma and harmonious taste.  To the sweet-toothed we recommend to try our traditional sweets such as: «ciambelle al vino» (wine pretzels), «amaretti» (macaroon cookies), «crostata» (pie crust with different fillings). And of course, one should taste excellent local wines, represented by such wine brands as Passerina(dry white) and Cesanese (dry red).
