Additional Location Information

La Fontana is situated in the Amerino county, just on the border between Lazio and Umbria. There are few areas in the world with so many cultural, archaeological and architectural sites of interest. Amelia is the ideal starting point for discovering a delightful countryside without the inconvenience of mass tourism.

Everyone knows Rome, but Lazio has much to offer to the enterprising visitor. We recommend a visit to Viterbo, Tuscania, Tarquinia, Villa Lante at Bagnaia, Caprarola and the abandoned town of Civita di Bagnoreggio. There are numerous lakes nearby: Bracciano, Bolsena and Vico, while the sea is only one hour by car, with some very nice beaches near Asedonia in Tuscany and Porto Ercole.

In Umbria, a region that has gained a name for being the green heart of Italy, tourism is growing because of the natural beauties, the antiquities and the historic centres of the region. The quiet countryside, good wine and an inimitable cuisine are a pleasant extra. The main cities to visit are Perugia, Orvieto, Spoleto, [home of the music festival] Assisi, Todi, but there are also many charming little towns and villages such as Narni, Lugnano in Teverina, Ferentillo, Stroncone, Labro and Norcia that are well worth a visit, including the wonderful wilderness of the Sibillini Mountains near Castelluccio di Norcia. The vast ruins of the Roman city of Carsulae and the beautiful waterfalls of Marmore are very close to Terni.

Amelia is sited on rolling hills, bordered on the north by thick woods and on the south by olive groves and vineyards. The walls originate from the pre-Etruscan period (700 BC) while the town has maintained its medieval plan without significant change in centuries. From the Roman period the most striking vestiges are the ancient cisterns and the statue of Germanico. The town people are charming and there are some good restaurants that serve typical Umbrian food. Wine producers are all around and it is fun to go round the local Cantine. We have some wonderful wine producers nearby in Montecchio, [Falesco], in Amelia, Colli Amerini, [Carbio] and Castello delle Regine. The same can be done for the olive oil, the local production is the best in Italy. The harvest season is usually mid November.
