Full day trip from Rome to Roman Castles
This incredible full day private tour departing from Rome includes a tour to the so-called Roman Castles (Castelli Romani in Italian), a group of comunes in the Metropolitan City of Rome. They are located a short distance south-east of the Eternal City, at the feet of the Alban Hills, in the territory corresponding to the Old Latium. For sure the itinerary could be customized as per your desires. You will depart from the Italian Capital and will join Castel Gandolfo, famous for the Apostolic Palace, the summer residence and vacation retreat for the pope, the leader of the Catholic Church. While you are at your first destination, you will get the chance to visit the town, relate with the people, and take wonderful pictures that will form the memory for your trip. The first stop will last about 30 minutes so you will be able to spend ample time in the city.
Visit Ariccia Town and other amazing Locations
After Castel Gandolfo, the next stop on your tour will be at Ariccia town, considered an extension of Rome's southeastern suburbs, located in the regional park known as the "Parco Regionale dei Castelli Romani". The car will be parked at Piazza della Republica where you will be able to see beautiful buildings like the Church of Santa Maria, the Fontana delle Tre Cannelle ("Fountain of the three spouts") and Palazzo Chigi. Nowadays, Ariccia has become famous for its porchetta, pork that is slowly roasted with herbs and wild fennel, and it has been known since historical times for its wine.
Join the panoramic views from Alban Lake and Nemi Lake
The full day private tour of Roman Castles also features a ride to Nemi Town, in the Alban Hills overlooking Lake Nemi, a volcanic crater lake. Here you can have a taste of wild strawberries (the city is famous for its wild strawberries, which are smaller and sweeter than commercially grown varieties) and have lunch at the world famous Locanda Lo Specchio di Diana. We also suggest you to visit Frascati, a historical and artistic centre, closely associated with science (being the location of several international scientific laboratories) and white wine with the same name.
