Jump in the saddle, take you around Lazio, riding your bike.
The places to visit, in Lazio, are innumerable: ours is a region that offers many possibilities to the centaurs who want to combine a rich historical-cultural heritage and a nature that is at times uncontaminated.
The Castelli Romani, the Tuscia, the Sabina, the Circeo: choosing where to go and what to see in Lazio, riding a motorcycle, is not as easy as it seems given the number of places, so different from each other, that you have available.
Are you an expert centaur? You will undoubtedly appreciate the Aurunci Mountains itinerary. Are you a motorcycle tourist? You can compare yourself with the Lucretili Mountains and the Turano Valley, or discover the Ciociaria and the Cesanese del Piglio Road.
To be on the safe side, instead, you can follow our advice and track the route chosen by the Salta in Sella section this month.
In motion between Circeo and Castelli Romani
What we have chosen for this month’s Salta in Sella is an itinerary of Lazio in action that takes us south of the capital, between the Pontine coast and the mountains, a clear sea area, and the Apennines.
It starts from the province of Latina, precisely from San Felice Circeo, a popular summer destination known for its privileged geographical position: clean sea, crystal clear beaches, and fresh air.
The town is located on the top of the Circeo promontory from which you can enjoy a 360-degree view of the Agro Pontino, the Gulf of Gaeta and the Pontine Islands, especially on bright days.
Around the Circeo peninsula, one of the most famous national parks in Italy develops, the Circeo National Park, a protected area full of naturalistic and historical beauties of inestimable value.
From here, you will drive to Sermoneta, reachable via the SS7 state road in about an hour. No more sea and beach, you will immerse yourself in the green of the Lepini Mountains and the historical-artistic beauties of Sermoneta, an exciting step for all lovers of ancient Roman history.
In motion, from the sea to the Castelli Romani
Leaving the ancient village of Sermoneta behind you, you will reach the Castelli Romani, which stands out on the outskirts of Rome and are known for their rich cultural and gastronomic offer.
You will pass through Cisterna di Latina entering directly into the Roman province that will greet you with the ancient walls of Velletri, city of the artichoke with matticella (taste it, it is delicious!).
Through the SP217, you will reach Rocca di Papa, the highest municipality of the Castelli Romani with its 1000 meters above sea level: from its Maschio Delle Fate, you will be able to admire one of the most beautiful panoramas ever in Rome and on the whole Regional Park of Roman Castles.
From Rocca di Papa to Rome, along the SP217, you will meet Marino, known for his October grape festival, and Ciampino, one of the liveliest centers of the Roman province, also because of the presence of the second airport in the capital.
