Nice place, just 80 km out of Rome, for a quick day trip.Apparently it was a ski resort 30 years ago, although the only thing that makes you believe that is the hugly apartments ( late '70s) that still remain, most for sale. Anyway, leaving the central parking lot and walking around the area, the Monti Simbruini reserve is very nice and incredibly snowy in winter. Good sledding, good Nordic skiing or nice walks. Nothing very special, but I was pleasantly surprised to find such a winter white landscape just so close to Rome. We ate at "il Capriolo" : the food was good indeed, but the service just completely unorganized, the screw up everything they could. They did with a smile though, so we just went out laughing. The place get overcrowded around 1.00pm and the staff can't handle that, so if you need to eat there just go before 12.30. There are a couple of places to rent skis, sleds, snowshoes ( at least on Sunday, when we visited). Overall it's a nice day trip from Rome if you're not keen to go farther on the Appennini mountains.
