Tour itinerary

Leaving Rome, this tour takes you on a coach ride by the ruins of the Baths of Caracalla and onto the Ancient Appian Way by the Chapel of "Domine Quo Vadis?". You will then continue along the ‘Road of the Lakes' through one of the hilly areas around Rome (Colli Albani), which is of volcanic origin and it particularly characteristic of the untouched landscape around Rome that makes up the charming Castelli Romani.

One of the villages in this region is Castelgandolfo, which sits on the shores of a volcanic lake and is where the Pope has his summer residence. Others include Rocca di Papa and Grottaferrata, known for their culture, sights and gastronomic delicacies, which include the traditional "porchetta". Towards the northerly part of the Colli Albani, on this tour you will reach Frascati, which is popular with visitors both for its beauty and beautiful local wines and vineyards. Here, there will be a stop so that you can taste local wine and absorb the flavour of village life. After a day of taking in all the beautiful villages of the Castelli Romani, our tour guide will return you safe and sound to the vicinity of your hotel.
