One of the smallest towns in Italy is located in the mountains near Rome. Marcetelli is a small town with a population of about seventy people, which has earned it the title of the smallest town in Italy.
Between Sabina and Ciociaria there are many fascinating places, ideal for getting out of the big city for a walk. These towns are located out in the hills and in the mountains, which will make these walks not only fascinating, but also healthy.
For many years, the medieval town was famous for its craft workshops, especially with woodworking. The barrels and vats made in this area were in great demand throughout the Lazio region.
Marcetelli is located at the base of Mount Navegna, now the smallest municipality in the whole Lazio region. In the past, it played an important role in historical events. It took part in the ancient wars in which Rome defeated the Gauls who were preparing for their invasion. After the fall of the Roman Empire and in the Middle Ages, this town, thanks to its location, remained remote from the strong influence of the rest of Italy, so it retained its very special charm.
