Three Off the Beaten Track Train Trips from Rome

Somerville, MA (PRWEB) April 16, 2014

The ancient, but ever so modern, capital city of Rome offers enough museums, monuments and cultural events to keep visitors busy for at least a week, if not longer. In between the lauded Roman attractions, travelers may yearn for a little quieter adventure off the beaten tourist track. ItaliaRail offers three such destinations, only an hour or so from Rome, and easily accessible by train:


Escape the hustle and bustle of Rome to this charming town in the pristine emerald hills of Umbria. Wander the narrow cobblestone streets, browse through beautiful shops filled with handmade Italian ceramics, linens and glassware. Have lunch at a charming osteria overlooking miles of perfectly, landscaped farmland, and just breathe in the fresh air. The gothic Duomo of Orvieto is the towns most famous landmark. Known formally as the Cathedral of St. Mary of the Assumption, it has been called one of the greatest artistic treasures of the late Italian Middle Ages. Its elements of 13th -14th French Gothic architecture, make it unique compared to most Roman basilicas built at that time, and truly a sight to see. Open to the public everyday, with varying hours depending on the season. Free admission during the week.

From Rome by train: From Roma Termini take the InterCity train to Orvieto station. Travel time is about 1 hour and 15 minutes with fares as low as $ 14 each way.

Fara Sabina – The Sabine Hills

Despite its close proximity to Rome, only about an hour to the north, the rural Sabine Hills remain frozen in time with beautiful rolling hills, medieval castles, and miles of olive groves to meander through. To make a visit even more memorable, consider taking bikes along. The regional trains from Rome allow bikes on the trains for an extra fee. The National Park Monti Lucretili offers hiking and biking trails through picturesque Italian villages to peaks that offer sweeping panoramic views. Weather dependent, hikers can see as far as St. Peters Basilica in Rome. The Sabine Hills are known for their production of premium extra virgin olive oil, which has been going on for more than a thousand years. Many well-known chefs swear by the olive oil from this region so be sure to take a few bottles home.

The major towns of the Sabine Hill are connected by regional train. You can hop off in one to explore, then hop back on the train to the next. If you want to venture further into the Hills, bringing a bike is recommended as the area is not well-serviced by taxi or bus. That said, tour companys offer guided half-day tours of the olive groves where they provide transportation. The tours include a stop at a massive, thousand year-old olive tree that still produces these savory, delicate fruits (yes olives are considered a fruit.) and an Olive Oil Museum . Tours can be arranged from Rome or once you arrive in Fara Sabina.

From Rome by train : Roma Tiburtina to Fara Sabina station by regional train takes about 45 minutes. The fare is $ 4 each way.


After a few hot days combing the streets of Rome from monument to monument, travelers may find themselves craving the cooler breezes and sandy shores of the Mediterranean. A perfect time for a day at the beach. Sperlonga is one of the most beautiful seaside towns near Rome, that beckons both locals and travelers looking for a beach break from the big city. The town itself is very small with a few quaint shops selling resort – type ware and souvenirs. Restaurants serve typical Italian dishes with an emphasis on seafood. In Sperlonga its all about the beach. Visitors head down a 10-minute path that leads to blue-green ocean and white-sandy shores. Space to just sit on your own towel or blanket is hard to come by, as the beach is organized into various private beach clubs. Do like the Romans do and rent a private cabana, or an umbrella with two chairs, for about $ 25 for the day. If you can pull yourself away from the beach, touring the remains of Emperor Tiberius Villa and Grotto is an interesting diversion. The mostly unpopular ruler of Rome from 14-37 AD, Tiberius had his summer residence in Sperlonga. A few parts of the ancient villa, including a fascinating seaside cave-grotto, remain for visitors to tour along with an adjoining museum of ancient artifacts and statues.

From Rome by train: From Roma Termini to Fondi-Sperlonga station takes about an hour and ten minutes by regional train. The fare is about $ 11 each way. From the train station, you can grab a bus that takes fifteen minutes to get to the beach.

For instance, one kind of auto insurance coverage is liability insurance. When you select liability insurance, you will be competent to choose an sum such as $25,000, $50,000 or more.

Finding Cheap Auto Insurance

Alas, more car insurance plan means a higher-priced premium. Nevertheless, comparison shopping is the greatest means to conserve money each month, for many grounds:

- The more estimates you find the more companies you are uncovered to.

You might locate a policy for a month and one for 0, but the policy does not really cover much at all, meaning the 0 coverage is the greatest deal.

When you have questions over which type of insurance you should select, don’t hesitate to phone an broker immediately.

An auto insurance perspective on electric cars

Vehicle insurance is quite affordable in regards to guaranteeing an electric push car. Discover why it’s so-and what car insurance will seem like in the potential for electrical and hybrid automobiles.

Looking at the showrooms of major car producers it’s now safe to say that electric cars are the future. There are fewer and less businesses left that have not released their accept the electric-motor vehicle however, while futurity-automobile club will be joined by a growing number of players. And when you’ve such titans as Ford, Nissan and actually BMW competing against each other on this fresh marketplace it is possible to call where the sector is heading over the following ten years. New-car companies like Tesla Engines additionally make their factor to tipping the size towards the more environment-friendly electric motor notion. But as we all agree about the typical automobile producing tendency in addition, it is important to consider the insurance view also. Because after all, we may find ourselves paying more to insurance company than to carmakers within the time scale of time while we’re using the vehicle.

The incentives

There are several insurance companies that take their image seriously, and as a part of creating a great image among prospective customers they suggest environment-friendly guidelines. In many events such policies result in incentives and reductions provided to proprietors of reduced-exhaust vehicles. Normally cross and electric-motor drive autos are subject to such price reductions, which makes auto insurance much more inexpensive for them. As a result, you may wind up spending much less for covering your high-priced electrical car than you might do for an inexpensive gas engine vehicle. That Is surely some food for thought to absorb.

A little outlook

It’s certain that electric cars are here to remain however odd and inconvenient some of them may look today. More models is likely to be released, batteries can get their storage expanded as well as the overall design will be enhanced – merely as it was with average automobiles less when compared to a century ago. Therefore it’s normal to expect the repair costs to decrease as fresh specialists will be able to support such automobiles in a timely manner. However, once the changeover to the new push type is going to be whole we are sure to observe a change in auto insurance providers as well, since insurers that you can get on http://cheapinsured.net are consistently interested in getting more money and they’ll strive to earn a gain in a environment full of “safer” cars. But only time will tell if this tiny forecast is right or not.

To begin with, let’s bums electrical vehicles as a group to find out in the place where they stand-in the insurance map. Their limited battery life equals short driving space, while their acceleration can scarcely contend to that of ordinary cars. This makes electric cars a secure guess when it comes to insurance assessments, because they’re maybe not most likely to be utilized for lengthy excursions or traffic race. Their security is typically greater due to innovations the automakers are eager introduce with their “innovative” models. And at once they’re not as likely to break down since electric automobiles usually have fewer components that go and therefore are susceptible to damage. Certain, they are expensive to repair because of the deficiency of repair professionals at the minute, yet they don’t get to restore stores as frequently as ordinary autos do. And letis not forget that their higher than-average costs mean that electric cars are typically purchased by people who have good jobs and educational activity – the type of drivers insurance companies like to cost with lower premiums. As a consequence, electric cars seem like a very good deal from the auto insurance viewpoint. But it gets actually better!
