Rieti, capital of the province and considered the navel of Italy, has its historical center that develops around Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II with the Fountain of the Dolphins and the Town Hall, dating from the thirteenth century and partly occupied by the Museum Civic, in which there are archaeological finds. Nearby is Piazza Battisti where there is the Palace of the Prefecture, of Renaissance style; always on the same square it stands the Cathedral, built in 1100, and the Bishop’s Palace, that houses the Diocesan Art Gallery, characterized by the spectacular Salone Papale. It is also reported the visit to the underground Rieti including some mansions of the city center and the remains of the ancient Roman viaduct. The province has a wealth of history but also of archeology; there are many itineraries to discover the antiquities scattered along the Tiber valley and the valley of Turano. Finally, important for religious tourism and very impressive are the Franciscan sanctuaries, stages of the journey of St. Francis, as the Sanctuary of Fonte Colombo with the church, the convent and the grotto; Sacro Speco, where, according to tradition, St. Francis dictated the definitive rule of his order; the Sanctuary of Greccio and the Sanctuary of Poggio Bustone, from where she left the peace mission of the Franciscans.
