GETAWAYS: Cycling, Hiking and Spas around Fiuggi

A trekking or cycling excursion outside Rome can take you through a network of hillside towns and medieval villages and into the surrounding woods that open onto lush green meadows and fertile farmland before trailing into a rural mountain pass. For those who are ready to explore beyond Rome's historic center the options are endless, but Fiuggi is a good starting point.


Rising at the slopes of Monti Ernici, in the southeast corner of Lazio near the Abruzzo border, encircled  by forest thick with chestnut, oak, maple, spruce, pine and sequoia  that extends toward an immense valley of green meadows, Fiuggi is a classic Italian hillside town. Its Medieval section was structured around a mcastle that loomed over the landscape from the promontory. Several noble Roman families from the Caetani to the Sforza, to the Borgia and Colonna dominated Fiuggi's flourishing agricultural economy. In  the 14th century  Fiuggi's miraculous healing mineral waters springs were discovered by Pope Boniface VIII in the 14th century, providing the wealthy landowners with source of revenue, received through the sale mineral water throughout Europe.

In the early 20th century, when Fiuggi's natural springs were evaluated for their curative elements in the water,   the town became home to one of  Europe's most prestigious thermal spas and a natural haven for health and fitness seekers.  The area has one of the longest bicycle routes in Italy, linking Fiuggi to Paliano, paralleling the the rail line that unites the thermal springs to Rome. Over the years, Fiuggi has played an important role in international cycling races. A lap of both the Giro d'Italia Tour and Giro del Lazio is often hosted at Fiuggi. From Fiuggi to Anagni to Alatri to the natural reserve of Lago di Canterno, the bike route forms  a loop around the region's artistic monuments and nature reserves.

Mountain bike enthusiasts go for the rural route, with its many ups and downs, twists and turns. Often recommended for cyclists in training  or anyone looking for a serious physical workout, the route leads towards the town of Fumone and Lake Canterno in the direction of Acuto and Altipiani di Arcinazzo. Physically challenging, the panoramic itinerary carves a scenic route over uncontaminated slopes covering more than 35 kilometers of downhill cycling with inclines of 350 meters. A total ascent of 800 meters cut through the mountain and the trail remains on the same level before opening onto the vast range. The payoff is the magnificent view of the hills below that spread out onto fields spotted with the delicate colors of spring wild flowers.

Recreational cyclists choose the  bike route that covers 68 kilometers of open verdant fields and  meadows that connect to historic architecture and monasteries along the route. The first incline on this route has a maximum of 9% and starts downhill at Passo della Sella  before crossing the high plains area of Arcinazzo.
Trekking in the countryside around Fiuggi, follows an itinerary that leads through a thick deep forest of chestnuts and oak trees girded by the Ernici and Lepini mountains. From Fonte Bonifacio, the trail runs along the golf club and the sanctuary of La Madonna della Stella arriving at Lago di Canterno. Starting from the opposite direction, you reach the ruins of the medieval town of Porciano, abandoned in the 18th century, which looks onto the panoramic vista of la Valle del Sacco. The return route leads hikers towards the mulattiera (mule track) of Anlagen, a good place to break and take in the panoramic view from Campo Catino before combing through acres of Monti Ernici's uncontaminated wilderness. The trail continues over pastures and a thicket of birch trees before reaching the natural oasis of Prato di Campoli or towards the path that rises to the Abbazia of Certosa di Trisulti. This excursion could take around six hours with altitudes varying from 300 to 1,100 m eters.
The weather is pleasant throughout most of the year, and the hillsides are steep enough to satisfy the most ambitious cyclist, but it's especially glorious in the spring months. As a bonus, along the trails, you can sample the region's traditional cuisine; simple hearty and healthy.
