Full description of the tour

Visit the scenic landscapes of Frascati & the Roman Castles

For this Frascati tour, our English-speaking tour driver will welcome you at your hotel or any other place of your convenience.

You will enjoy the scenery of a series of small villages scattered on a territory of volcanic land,  called Roman castles , because of the imposing castle and palaces, houses to many important families and Popes. Some of the small towns are separated from one another by woods of chestnut trees or by rich and untouched vegetation. Other are linked to each other by buildings, others are isolated on the top of the ancient inactive volcano.

The Roman castle hill towns of ancient and medieval origin are celebrated for their lush green scenery, volcanic lakes, authentic cuisine, and local white wines.

Visit the two main hill towns, Frascati and Castel Gandolfo.

Frascati is the most famous town of the Roman castles. according to other scholars, the town’ name comes from the “frascata”, a special right to collect firewood and branches, which were used in the Middle Ages as a mean to cover houses.
The town of Castel Gandolfo became the property of the popes. At the end of the 16th and early 17th centuries, aristocratic Romans began to build luxurious villas in and around the Castelli Romani Hill towns, just as the ancients had done.

Your English-speaking tour driver will be happy to suggest some great local restaurants in the area for lunch and upon request, schedule a visit in a local winery, because this area is world famous for the amazing food. More importantly, for the great wine production.

At the end of the tour, your tour driver will drop you off at your hotel or other area of your convenience in Rome or surrounding area.
