Rome’s Little Tuscany: The Castelli Romani
Everybody needs a getaway now and then from the hustle and bustle of Rome. We suggest slipping away for a day trip to one of the best kept secrets nearby: the Castelli Romani (Roman Castles). The countryside forms a cluster of a dozen villages speckled with monasteries, duchy estates, and medieval borgos, atop picturesque volcanic ridges and divided by vineyard-filled valleys, panoramic peaks and spring-fed lakes. Most famously, it is the proud home to the Papal Summer Palace in Castel Gandolfo. It also represents Rome’s prestigious wine region and is home to the world-renown Frascati White. The Castelli Romani are considered Rome’s “little Tuscany” where wine lovers, foodies, poets, artists, and even the Pope himself escape the City to renew their spirits. Each village has its own gastronomic and art festivals and have developed a unique personality over the centuries. We might visit a local winery, the papal summer palace, and feast on local specialties. (With private car & driver. Inquire about pricing)
