Legambiente leads fifth edition of ‘Treno Veio Tuscia’


ROME – The fifth edition of ‘Treno Veio Tuscia,’ a tour of Castelnuovo di Porto guided by volunteers of Circolo Legambiente di Castelnuovo di Porto, will take place on Jan 20.

 The initiative is set to take place for a fifth time, having enjoyed growing success in previous years. The trip starts by taking the 09.30 train from Roma Flaminio to Castelnuovo di Porto, where there will be a guided tour of the area. The Church of Sant’Antonio and Rocca Colonna are amongst some of the historical sites which there will be the opportunity to visit.

 Legambiente’s original aim of this idea was to incentivise the use of the train by utilising the railway line connecting Rome Flaminio to Viterbo as a means of acknowledging the area of municipalities along this forgotten line. One of its principal objectives was to highlight that this train line is not only for commuters, but that it should be used to rediscover the natural beauty of Lazio’s landscape and stress the need for the revival of this rundown railway line.

 Upon the organisation of the first edition of ‘Treno Veio Tuscia,’ Roberto Scacchi, director of Legambiente Lazio, voiced that there was “a need to promote and encourage initiatives to rediscover the beauty of the area by means of the railway and with sustainable tourism, thus prompting the redevelopment of the section of the line from Rome Flaminio to Viterbo.” Scacchi described the section as “a line with a commuter service not certainly of high level, but with extraordinary potential due also to the beautiful landscape that it crosses.”

 The initiative therefore reflects Legambiente’s commitment to encouraging an appreciation of nature and dedication to supporting environmentally sustainable forms of tourism.
