They are located in north-south direction between the Monti Reatini at east and the Tiber valley westwards. The upper section are the Monti Sabini proper, on the boundary between Latium and Umbria, and the Monti Lucretili sub-range, on the boundary between the province of Rieta and the Metropolitan City of Rome. The two sub-ranges are separated by the plain and hilly areas of the Sabina.
