These lovely small villages in the south of Rome, called Castelli,
are an isolated group rising from the Roman
countryside and have always been a wonderful holiday resort for both Romans and foreigners, due to the beauty
of the landscape, the works of art you can see there, the typical local cuisine and the good wine!
The first village to visit is Castelgandolfo
and its palace (pope's summer residence) and the lovely lake of Albano,
a former ancient volcano. Driving along the tuscolana road we reach Grottaferrata that is very famous for its
important 15th century monastery and church decorated with 16th century frescos of saint Nilus' life.
We continue visiting Nemi village built on the slope of a hill, overviewing Nemi lake, another former volcano.
This village is very famous because in Spring you can sit in a bar tasting wild strawberries with fresh cream and
looking at the panorama over the lake.
If you wish during this your, we will visit wineries.
There are few things in the world as enjoyable as a great glass of wine.
you will be able to sample some of the best wines that Italy has to offer as well as
various cheeses and meats specifically chosen to compliment the wines you are tasting.
