Get on board and let us introduce you to the hidden gems of Old Rome. Admire the architecture and get to know the historical highlights of the city with this tour guided by experts!
We will pick you up in Rome, with an 8-seater minibus and we will show you, one by one, the most characteristic villages on the outskirts of Rome.
The name "Castelli Romani" commonly refers to a series of towns to the south-east of Rome, most of which rise on hills known since antiquity as Colli Albani.
In the last period of the republican age the wealthiest Romans began to holiday on the Alban Hills and build villas, driven by intellectual pleasure and the desire to demonstrate, through sometimes grandiose constructions, their own taste, their own refinement, their own culture, if not especially its economic power.
In the High Middle Ages, emphyteus and tenants of possessions belonging to the Church tend to free themselves from the central authority.
In the fifteenth century the castles of the feudal lords turned into municipalities; this can be considered the birth certificate of the Castelli Romani.
We will show you Albano, Castelgandolfo (summer residence of the Popes), Ariccia, the romantic Nemi, Genzano di Roma.
At the end of the tour we will offer to you a dinner in a typical Old Village Restaurant.

I loved the villages' medieval look. So many delightful landscapes and structures! The weather was lovely for exploration! The restaurant that they took us to was gorgeous! It looked so traditional and the food was so delicious! Perfect day for me!
Just a short ride out of Rome and you get the feeling of authenticity. Lovely green hills and charming, medieval villages. The area owes much of its charm to the crystal clear lakes and the whole region is full of gardens and green. Romantic and idyllic hills with hotels and panoramic views. This will be our stop on our next trip.
Great afternoon at the countryside. Beautiful little towns so close to Rome. Impressive landscapes by the lakes. Nice to be away from the big city for a while.
