Roman Castles, Frascati & Castle Gandolfo (from Rome)

Castle Gandolfo - Roman Castles

After breakfast meeting with our LGBT Friendly Driver and departure to Castle Gandolfo, driving along the ancient Appian Way. Welcome to the summer residence of the Popes. Stop in the picturesque Piazza della Libertà in Castle Gandolfo, where the solemn Apostolic Palace opens its doors for the first time to the wider public of families. Afterwards continue to Albano, which dominates his Lake, and the city of Ariccia, famous for its large bridge with three arches. Lunch on your own to taste local specialities. After lunch, continue to Rocca di Papa, a medieval town wonderfully situated on the slopes of Monte Cavo, and Grottaferrata, a small and elegant city, whose history is permanently linked to the well known Abbey of Saint Nilus and to the historical fair of medieval times. Finally arrival in Frascati, the most famous town of Castelli Romani, very popular not only for the elegance of Tusculan Villas, but also for the delightful food and wine products. Here take a walk through the narrow streets and delight your tongue with a tasting of local wines (3 wines). Afterwards transfer back to Rome.

Tivoli & Roman Villas (from Rome)

After breakfast meeting with our LGBT Friendly Driver and departure to Tivoli and discover two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Villa d’Este and Hadrian’s Villa. Visit the Renaissance Villa d'Este was built in the 1550s for Cardinal Ippolito d'Este, the son of Lucretia Borgia. Built over a Benedictine convent, the palace was intended for entertaining and contains lavishly frescoed reception rooms. The main attraction for visitors, however, is the breathtaking garden. Designed to impress the Cardinal's guests, the Villa d'Este's gardens are composed almost exclusively of water features and precious fountains. After lunch on your own, continue with the Villa Adriana, a undescribable place. The Emperor Hadrian conceived a countryside dwelling here that would by normal standards be considered a town. A gigantic complex with underground service passages big enough for vehicles (tantalising glimpses are still visible), the Villa incorporates lakes, fountains, libraries, baths, temples and gardens. The area covered is staggering, and highly confusing even when armed with a map; it's easy to imagine the emperor himself asking for directions. Afterwards transfer back to Rome.
