Il Sogno: Serene Elegance-Medieval Town near Rome

Resting on a hilltop on the edge of the Sabina Mountains just north of Rome, the medieval village of Casperia strikes many perfect balances. It combines easy access to the Eternal City with its own quiet serenity. One of the few towns in Europe prohibiting automobiles from its centro storico, or historical center, Casperia manages to retain the authentic beauty of its ancient heritage in an enchanting setting so close to Rome that many of its residents commute to work there daily.

Il Sogno is a lovingly and recently restored, centuries-old apartment in the heart of Casperia. It has a well-appointed kitchen, a modern full bath, a half bath, separate ...Read more

Additional Location Information

My wife and i restored our home in Casperia so that after we retired we could live there a few months each year. We fell in love with Casperia and the surrounding Sabina area when we first visited, and over the years we continue learning more and more about the area and have come to love it even more. In addition to the Sabina's physical beauty (think Tuscany without the tour busses), we selected Casperia because of its easy access to Rome, a city we dearly love. The station at nearby Poggio Mirteto offers train service into Rome as early as 5:40AM and return service as late as 12:30AM, giving plenty of flexibility in visiting that wonderful city.. But beyond Rome, it is so easy to get to many special places in central Italy that we always have difficult choices deciding where to visit next: Orvieto,with its magnificent duomo; the antique shop and medieval architecture of the San Pellegrino quarter of Viterbo; the Roman ruins and music festivals in beautiful Spoleto; the outstanding medieval piazza of the hilltop town of Todi; Assisi, with its Roman ruins and Cathedrals of St. Frances and Santa Chiara; the ancient gardens at Bomarzo; the Etruscan ruins and museum in the ancient seaside town of Tarquinia; Hadrian's villa and the Villa di Este in Tivoli, and so many more. And the food! There are so many good restaurants in Casperia and the surrounding area we have to be careful about our weight. Check TripAdvisor for Restaurants in Casperia for an idea of what is available. And each of the neighboring villages offers its own special trattorie and osterie. Fortunately, Casperia and the adjacent Sabina mountains offer many opportunities to hike.

All in all, Casperia and the Sabina presents an idyllic setting for experiencing true off-the-beaten path Italy, but close enough to so many of the more traditional tourist sites than you'd ever want to visit. Provided, of course, that after experiencing the beauty and serenity of il Sogno, Casperia and the Sabina, you can work up the resolve to leave long enough to visit them.
