The town of Fabro Scalo developed along with the railroad line in the 1930s and quickly became a transportation point. It is the primary commercial center for the surrounding villages, offering a variety of shops, grocery stores, and services, along with a handful of restaurants and coffee bars. There is a piazza fronted by the church and the library that is the main gathering spot for locals. An annual harvest festival is held here each August.
The entire area is important for the cultivation of olives and very high quality olive oil is produced in the region. The hills also offer a prized variety of white truffles. Fabro Scalo is part of the medieval town of Fabro, which is just a few miles away. The nearby hill villages of Carnaiola, Ficulle and Parrano are worth a visit, and there are some good country restaurants in the area that serve delicious regional specialties.
