ARCE AND THE CIOCIARIA
The city retains its medieval appearance in the steep, narrow streets of its historic center. A large part of the modern built-up area instead developed along the Via Casilina below, well connected to the main communication routes and services. Cicero speaks of the territory “Arcanum” and of a Villa Arcana, described and magnified. Certain inscriptions and some remains remain from the Roman period. Let’s not forget that in the territory of Arce there was the Latin colony of Fregellae founded by the Romans in 328 BC. Today it is a very important archaeological park, which, with scientific excavations at the university level, is coming to light and can be visited at any time of the year. In the Middle Ages Arce met troubled historical events: occupied in the 5th century. from the Goths of Totila, war with the Byzantines, it was later devastated by the Saracen hordes. It was a strategic place of considerable importance, situated on the border between the Papal States and the Kingdom of Naples.
La Ciociaria is easily reached from both Rome and Naples and the respective airports. A day of shopping in Rome is a common pastime, while an even shorter ride takes you to the enchanting beaches south of Rome. Alternatively, by car to the east, and the mountains of the Abruzzo National Park await you with horse trekking in the magnificent beech forests, and glistening lakes and mountain rivers where you can swim in the heat of summer. And at the other end of the temperature, even if Arpino itself is temperate, less than an hour’s drive takes you to the winter ski slopes.
Often overlooked by both tourists and foreigners looking for an Italian home, in favor of the most advertised regions of Tuscany and Umbria, Ciociaria remains largely a pristine pearl with beautiful landscapes and medieval villages on top of the hills. A house or second home in Ciociaria, in the hilly cities of Arpino, Veroli, Alatri or in the rolling countryside that surrounds them, will offer you an environment where over two thousand years of history combine with an idyllic rural Italian lifestyle, where you can still discover the “real” Italy and take your free time from the crowded crowds of the big tourist cities while being less than ninety minutes away from the center of Rome or from one of Rome’s two airports.
