Spend a day discovering the Monte Gelato waterfalls are one of the most fascinating places in the Treja Valley.
Particularly loved by cinema and advertising screenwriters, Monte Gelato is one of the most significant and evocative historical sites of the region as its waterfalls are located within the Valle del Treja Regional Park, a timeless location, untouched by man and set in between medieval castles, woods, and canyons. The site preserves traces of the many fascinating settlements that occurred over time: the remains of a Roman villa of the first century BC, the agricultural settlement of the VIII century AD, and the watermill built in the 19th century that remained active until the 1960s.
The suggestive sights, the numerous waterfalls, and the shady gorges make this natural spot a classic destination for trips and outings. Once you've been picked up from your hotel, you'll leave Rome right away and head to this unique region; here, your walk will begin with a visit to the "Mola di Monte Gelato", the old mill, and then proceeds towards the waterfalls, on the right bank of the Treja river. If you wish, you can take a path that runs along the river or simply relax in the shade of poplars and elms. To make this walk even more suggestive you will be taken along the banks of the river, in the middle of the waterfalls and, once the walk is over, you'll rest in the equipped area where you can enjoy an included picnic under the shade of the trees.
At the end of the day, you'll be driven back to your hotel.
