We are thinking about adding hiking adventure to our list of tours. Gran Sasso is one of highest peaks near Rome and at about 2 hr drive away it is a great excursion for a day out in nature.
We had a lovely day trip from Rome yesterday. We had an in depth visit at a vineyard and wine tasting of the Lazio red wine grape Cesanese. Then a lovely lunch in a trattoria with local products and wine followed by a visit to the hauntingly beautiful medieval monastery in Subiaco.
Here are some photos!
