Set amidst the wooded hills of the Valle dell’Aniene in Lazio's remote eastern reaches, Subiaco is one of the region's hidden pearls. Nero had a huge villa here – you can still see a few scant ruins just outside town – but it was St Benedict (480-543) who put the town on the map when he spent three years meditating in a local cave. This grotto is now incorporated into the Monastero di San Benedetto, one of the town’s two historic Benedictine monasteries.
