Your English speaking driver-guide will meet you at your hotel in the city centre or any other place as previously arranged then you will make your way to the “Castelli Romani” area, about 40 minutes drive south/east of Rome, going through beautiful scenarios, visiting little towns settled since ancient Roman times, where you will be allowed to stroll down the small historic city centres to see how the locals live. Just a few miles outside of Rome there is a wide enchanting countryside awaiting you: Renaissance Villas, Vineyards, little villages which were the preferred locations for the roman nobles to go for a day trip or to rest a few days away from the heat and the noise of the busy city.
Still today the Pope has his summer residence in Castel Gandolfo: a beautiful baroque villa with a breathtaking view on the lake Albano. This tour allows you to escape for a few hours from the crowd of Rome to visit also Frascati, famous for the superb wine produced here and the food, Grottaferrata with its Monastery established in 1004 AD and the city of Ariccia were Gianlorenzo Bernini created a superb architecture for the Chigi Family. At the end of the tour you will drive back to Rome to be dropped off at your Hotel or any other location in the centre.
