CASPERIA — 14 MILES
Casperia sits on a rocky outcrop and is considered one the most picturesque medieval villages in the area. The town is totally pedestrianized and has fewer than 350 inhabitants, and is one of the last villages of Italy that doesn’t have a tourist feel to it. It has retained all of it’s medieval ambiance, with winding cobble-stoned streets, narrow alley-ways, and stone buildings.
As is typical of these hill towns, you have to park on the outer rim of Casperia and walk up into the historic center. That again means lots of steps — getting there and getting around. But then again, you’re in the Sabine Mountains so the views from the town may make you feel the trek was worth it.
