What to expect

Immerse yourself in the beauty of the Roman countryside and marvel at the area’s medieval villages and castles. On this tour starting from Rome, you’ll head into the hills, following along the ancient Appian Way.

Leaving the city you’ll drive by the ruins of the Baths of Caracalla before joining the Appian Way by the Domine Quo Vadis Chapel. You’ll follow the Road of the Lakes through the Colli Albani, which is one of the hilly areas of volcanic origin that characterize the outskirts of Rome.

See Castel Gandolfo on the shores of a volcanic lake, where the Pope enjoys the summer months. Nearby Rocca di Papa and Grottaferrata are known for their gastronomic delicacies, including the traditional porchetta.

In the northern part of the Colli Albani, you’ll find the village of Frascati, which is popular both for its beauty and its wine production. Stop for a tasting of local wine and absorb the unique atmosphere of village life.
