This apartment is situated in the medieval centre of Soriano nel Cimino, in one of the oldest parts of the centro storico. In fact, it is at least 350 years old. The locals describe this part of the old centre as very tranquil and they are right. Partially this is because it is only able to be accessed on foot for the last 70 metres so has no through traffic. It is light and airy with views from all windows, either back across the old town, up to the mountains, or down the valley into Umbria.
 
The close proximity of Soriano to Viterbo, Orte and Orvieto and other wonderful towns and cities make it an ideal base for day trips, either by car or by bus and train. The position, on the Monte Cimino means that summer months are cooler than in Rome (maximum about 30 C). In addition the proximity to public transport make it possible to traverse Lazio, Umbria, Tuscany, and Le Marche to visit such many marvellous places as Rome, Orvieto, Perugia, Siena and Florence, to name a few.
 
                                                                                   Exploring Lazio
 
Suggested day trips around many of Lazio's wonderful, undiscovered towns and villages from Soriano by car. (If possible by train*)
Throughout the area of Northern Lazio look out for some of the local agricultural goods, such as local wine and exquisite olive oil, chestnuts, hazelnuts, kiwi fruit, sheep and cow cheeses, pork (porchetta), vine/tree-ripened fruits, the freshest artichokes and asparagus and fresh and locally grown vegetables of all kinds seasonally.
Getting started!
 
*Soriano-Viterbo (14.9 kms; 23 mins).From Soriano follow the signs to Viterbo from Piazza Vittore Emanuelle. Along the way there is a chance to stop in at *Bagnaia (11.5 kms; 17mins) and marvel at the superb gardens of the Villa Lante.

Also it is worth strolling through the old town of Bagnaia with its narrow streets and alleyways. If you have time stop at Vitochiano (11.3 kms; 18 mins) and stroll through another delightful medieval town. Take in the precipitous views!!
 

Soriano-Cerveteri. (Etruscan focus). (72.3 kms; 1hr 24 mins). The necropoli are simply fantastic. 2 kms of tombs through a userfriendly area that even has picnic spots and a couple of bars if you need them. We visited in May and it was not at all crowded.

Also you can go or return via Bracciano (17.4 kms;22 mins) and Lake Bracciano and visit the Odaleschi Castle that is in very good order and was originally an Orsini castle. Guided tours (in Italian) on the hour during opening times. (9-12 and 3-5 in May). Bracciano to Soriano is 55.8 kms so allow at least 1hr 5mins
