“Fara In Sabina Civic Archeological Museum is a True Treasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

The Archeological Museum of Fara in Sabina was one of the highlights of our visit to the Sabina region. It houses some very important archeological finds relating to the fascinating pre-Roman Sabine culture that flourished in this region up until the time when it was overwhelmed and absorbed by an expanding Rome.

I have been to many of Rome and Orvieto’s great museums and I have enjoyed them immensely, but their size can be overwhelming. Fara’s smaller civic museum is just the right scale and is so wonderfully laid out.

I have to say we were totally blown away by the richness of the exhibits, which were mostly from the excavated necropolises of two nearby Sabine cities, Cures, and Eretum. The museum features beautiful displays of Sabine ceramics, jewellery, bronze, glass, enamel, stone and other artefacts in the usual glass cases, but it also has engaging cutting-edge multi-media displays in a second gallery above the old bakery across the street, and this display is world class!

This is a museum well worth visiting and one that the people of this region should be very proud of. I would highly recommend combining a visit, like we did, with a tour of nearby Farfa Abbey and a visit to the magnificent L’Ulivone (continental Europe’s largest and oldest olive tree) in nearby Canneto.
