Castelli Romani Tour Description
A tour aimed at veteran tourists of the Rome area who are curious about getting off the beaten path and keen to explore a greener refuge just a stone’s throw away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
A serene oasis of volcanic lakes and hills awaits you just a quick 20km southeast of Rome where you’ll be whisked away with your private guide to visit a few of the thirteen towns that constitute what is known as the Castelli Romani.
This tour will have you exploring Nemi, Castel Gandolfo, and the Barberini Gardens, and finally sipping a fresh Frascati white wine during an exclusive wine tasting in a boutique winery in the very town that gives the wine its name.
They say when in Rome, do as the Romans do and in fact, during the hotter summer months, Romans themselves head to this very same area so you’ll feel just like a local and get a taste of what life is like outside city limits.
Discover The Views Around Lake Nemi
In Nemi, you will see the town and enjoy some of the best views of Lake Nemi, perhaps while trying out the town’s claim to fame: wild strawberries! The microclimate created by the volcanic crater and the warm Roman sun results in some of the sweetest strawberries you’ll ever taste giving a new definition to the expression “la dolce vita”, the sweet life.
Castel Gandolfo and The Barberini Gardens
Next up is Castel Gandolfo, better known as the former summer residence of the Pope that is now open to the public thanks to Pope Francis. Here you can kick back and feel the wind through your hair as you ride on an open-top bus through the magnificent Barberini Gardens with an audio guide (your private guide will accompany you).
Enjoy the extensive papal gardens fit for religious royalty as you pass through the magnificently-curated “cuore verde”, green heart, of the summer residence. If the perfectly-manicured gardens aren’t enough to impress you, lunch surely will as you take a seat in one of the area’s most beautiful restaurants with breathtaking lake views, subject to availability at the time of booking (note that lunch is not included in the tour price).
Frascati Wine Experience
Finally, in what can only be described as a quintessential wine town- Frascati, you’ll be heading straight to a winery to toast to your perfect day roaming the outskirts of Rome!
Meeting point: pick up at your hotel/accommodation.
