About The Tour
Why do visitors flock to Italy year after year? The art and scenery are exceptional, but food is also high up there in the list of the most loved aspects of Italy.
Combine beautiful scenery and culinary pleasure in this out of town day tour from Rome.
Your Rome tour guide will take you to the region known as 'castelli romani'. The expression translates literally as 'Roman Castles' but in fact it refers to the wine-producing villages and towns scattered over the hills and among the lakes in this ancient, fertile volcanic area.
The hills have always been a rural retreat for the city's wealthy residents. Follow in the steps of the Roman royal families who travelled to this area away from the hustle and bustle of the city; the Pope also has his summer residence in the region. See the many villas and palaces, reminders of a glorious past.
Nowadays the area is famous for its amazing regional produce. Foodies will enjoy browsing around the shops selling local-made products, such as cheese, cured meats, wine and fruits and will rave about the homemade food and wine served for lunch in one of the area's many great restaurants.
