It might sound strange, but in Soriano nel Cimino, in the heart of the Tuscia Region, there is an ancient Chinese Marble Imperial Boat! This is a perfect replica of the original Imperial Boat, but it comes from China. It was a gift from the emperor in the 1960s, given to a local businessman from Soriano who used to travel in China at that time. He transported it in pieces from China and rebuilt it in his private forest in Soriano nel Cimino.

A unique day in the heart of Monte Cimino, amidst pristine nature and ancient history. A delightful journey through Faggeta Vetusta, a UNESCO site, and a visit to the extraordinary Chinese Imperial Boat, with panoramic stops and a honey experience.

Tour Details

An unforgettable day in the heart of Monte Cimino, where nature and centuries-old history merge into a unique adventure. Before starting our excursion, we will be greeted with a fantastic breakfast featuring local and seasonal products to energize ourselves. Our journey will begin at the base of Faggeta Vetusta, an authentic UNESCO gem, immersing ourselves in the magical atmosphere of one of the last stands of primeval beech forests. We will traverse enchanting paths, surrounded by lush greenery and accompanied by the song of birds.

We will discover an ancient church that tells centuries-old stories, each with its own charm and unique spirituality. We will immerse ourselves in the sacredness of the place, letting history transport us to distant eras. Our adventure will continue with a visit to the extraordinary Chinese Imperial Boat, an incredible surprise hidden among the trees. We will admire the grandeur of this unique monument, a testament to distant cultural connections and exotic allure in the heart of Italian nature. We will enjoy panoramic breaks along the way, admiring spectacular views of the picturesque valley below. The breathtaking landscape will offer us the opportunity to relax, savor the pristine beauty of Monte Cimino, and discover the plants and animals that inhabit it. Upon reaching our campsite, we will rest from the morning walk and be welcomed with a special lunch. In the early afternoon, after tasting local delicacies, we will continue the day with our “Honey Experience.” We will don protective suits and observe how honey is harvested from the hives. We will conclude our experience with a tasting of freshly harvested honey. Join us for a day of adventures, explorations, and discoveries in a unique environment, where nature and history intertwine in an extraordinary blend.

Why an enquiry and not immediate confirmation?

We want to offer genuine travel experiences. We prefer small partners instead big tourist attractions. This will reflect in a great experience for you but need little more time to arrange. Usually they are not big  company well organized to respond at the moment to any request.  Sometimes they are small family run activities, more than happy to host our guest, but they need to arrange their private life and job for your visit.
