Fabro (Terni province)

A town of western Umbria: 42°51.6N, 12°00.6E. Altitude: 364 m 2003 population: 2700.

Approaching Fabro from the valley.

Fabro is a hilltown at the west edge of Umbria over­looking the Tiber valley and the Florence-to‑Rome superhighway that follows it, 23 km northwest of Orvieto and 18 km southeast of Chiusi in southern Tuscany. It is a farming center with only slight remains of its medieval fortifications.

A proper website will eventually appear here, since I've been to Fabro and walked a fair amount of the surrounding area. In the meanwhile therefore, and especially if you plan on staying in a hotel in the area, you will almost certainly find it useful to read the entries of my diary for Sept. 15 and Sept. 18, 2000 and Apr. 30, 2004 (including at least one atmospheric photo of the surrounding countryside); for further information, see the websites linked in the navigation bar at the bottom of this page.


Like most of the comuni in Italy, Fabro includes in its territory some smaller towns and hamlets, of a few hundred inhabitants if that, with a certain administrative identity of their own: as elsewhere in Italy, these are referred to as the frazioni of the comune (singular: frazione, literally a "fraction"): a complete list of them follows. I've only been to Fabro Scalo myself, so any other links will be offsite.
