On the opposite sides are the Valle dell'Inferno ("Hell's Valley") and Valle degli Angeli ("Angels' Valley") leading to Rieti's plain and the mounts of Cantalice.The Terminillo is an active ski resort.

  • My family and I came more than once to take long walks all the way to the Summit of Monte Terminillo. It's just lovely, arguably among the most beautiful in the Italy Center. The landscape is quite varied, we move quickly from gentle valleys with rocky peaks, from foggy mountain huts to small herds of sheep grazing quietly in the wind and the Sun. For those who want to reach the top, the Board obviously wearing a good jacket, since the place is almost always shrouded in mist and it's easy to "enter" into the clouds to get completely soaked. But definitely worth it (indeed, I've always found it rather amusing). Spot the most species of animals and plants as possible: there are so many and in summer the colors stand out with particular vivacity on the bright green of the grass, making them easy to notice even for children (my father did a wonderful game for my younger brother). In short, although she is best known as a skiing destination, I recommend you go there even in summer: it really is a lovely place.

  • Gradually, this town is dying, I think primarily for political reasons, many shops not to say almost all of them are closed specilamnet during the week, the Pharmacy and the tourist board I think is always closed, survive a few bars and restaurants; the cable car is always closed, many ski resorts also, this also depends on the lack of snow, Why kill a wild places so beautiful. Then we do not speak of the road that has been closed to Terminillo lioness, uniscce time for dangerousness (rock falls); abusing some summer travel and is not more dangerous than other roads, the stretch is really minimal and you could provide.
