Full description
Immerse yourself in the beauty of the Roman countryside and marvel at the area’s medieval villages and castles. On this 3-hour tour 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 or Alban Hills, 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. You’ll stop for a taste of local wine and some time to absorb the atmosphere of village life.
