A country inn near Castro dei Volsci (Ciociaria)
Enter the rustic stone La Locanda del Ruspante through an imposing arched portal, the "silent witness" to the many who have passed through it, and step back in time to the ageless life of rural Italy. The inn is made of rough-hewn stone, solid wood beams, handmade terracotta and wrought iron, and yet has been renovated to include every comfort, including en suite baths, air conditioning, and WiFi. The decor is in keeping with the history and culture of the region, while the suites and rooms take their names from the people they once belonged to. Located just an hour south of Rome (one and a half hours north of Naples), the Locanda provides easy access to many of the famous sites of the Lazio and Campania regions, such as the Fossanova Abbey, Monte Cassino, the Casamari Abbey, the Carthusian monastery of Trisulti, the caves of Pastena, the "Ulysses Riviera" (Sperlonga, Gaeta), the Pontine Islands, the towns of Castro dei Volsci, Ferentino, Alatri, and more.
