Castelli Romani Tour

Seasonal festivals are abound in this region ranging from strawberry and grape festivals to garden festivals.  Every October in Marino, there is a grape harvest festival where the water of the fountains are substituted with wine and everyone drinks for free.

The Castelli Romani region boasts highly regarded restaurants which are frequented on the weekends by Romans. These picturesque Roman Castle Villages are nestled in hillsides with stunning views of Lake Albano and Lake Nemi and surrounded by winding roads. The villages that make up this region are Albano Laziale, Ariccia, Castel Gandolfo, Colonna, Frascati, Genzano di Roma, Grottaferrata, Lanuvio, Lariano, Marino, Monte Compatri, Monte Porzio Catone, Nemi, Rocca di Papa, Rocca Priora and Velletri.  These towns lay in a dormant volcanic crater which has provided fertile land for the growth of grapes and the production of wine. Throughout the ages, wealthy Romans have vacationed in the Castelli Romani during the summer months due to its refreshing climate, fresh air, and swimming holes.

These countryside towns are spread out along the Alban Hills. We visit the best of the Castelli Romani. Depending on the season, special events may top our list: celebrations of various local produce including Frascati wines, strawberries, peaches, meats, fish, flowers and gardens.
