The valleys of the rivers Merse and Farma are famous for their clear water, the un-ending woodland, their mushrooms and their gastronomical specialties, based on game, above all wild boar stew.
Long ago this was the land of the charcoal burners and bandits and even before pilgrims crossed our wild area on their "Via Francigena"to Rome.
It is possible to organize walking excursions and bicycle tours leading to the Terme di Petriolo with its traces of a Roman settlement and the hot water pool on the banks of the river Farma.
