Rieti

Rieti (Italian: Reate) is a hilltop city in Lazio, which is about 80 km north of Rome, and it is the capital of province of Rieti. It sits close to an ancient lake and the River Velino, and it was orginally a major site for the Sabine nation. In ancient times, it formed a strategic point on the "salt track", which was the road network that linked Rome and the Adriatic Sea. Following its major development by the Romans, which saw the construction of the city's walls, Rieti became a place of importance for historical events, such as marriages and crownings, as well as other significant events. The top attractions include the Roman remains over the River Velino, Piazza San Rufo (considered the exact centre of Italy), the Cathedral with its Romanesque bell tower, Palazzo Comunale, Palazzo del Governo, the Bishop's Arch bridge, the city walls, the Gothic church of Sant'Agostino, Lake Lungo, Ripasottile Natural Preserve and Mount Terminillo.
