Highlights
    What to Expect
    I will pick you up in Rome, I also have an 8-seater minibus and I will show you, one by one, the most characteristic villages on the outskirts of Rome.

    The name "Castelli Romani" commonly refers to a series of towns to the south-east of Rome, most of which rise on hills known since antiquity as Colli Albani.

    In the last period of the republican age the wealthiest Romans began to holiday on the Alban Hills and build villas, driven by intellectual pleasure and the desire to demonstrate, through sometimes grandiose constructions, their own taste, their own refinement, their own culture, if not especially its economic power. In the High Middle Ages, emphyteus and tenants of possessions belonging to the Church tend to free themselves from the central authority. In the fifteenth century the castles of the feudal lords turned into municipalities; this can be considered the birth certificate of the Castelli Romani.

    I will show you Albano, Castelgandolfo (summer residence of the Popes), Ariccia, the romantic Nemi, Genzano di Roma.

    At the end of the tour we will offer to you a luck ora  a dinner in a typical Old Village Restaurant.
