This tour is designed for nature lovers and wine lovers, but also for anyone interested in seeing more of the area surrounding Rome.
Spend a half-day touring Castelli Romani, home to the famous hills known as “Roman Castles.” Escape from the bustle of Rome and visit a typical “fraschetta” the venue where Romans traditionally go to eat their own food paying for the table and the local wine served. Nowadays Fraschettas are specialised in both food and wine, so …relax and enjoy!
The region is home to some of the oldest wine-producing vineyards in the world. Etruscans and Greek settlers produced wine in the country long before the Romans started developing their own vineyards in the 2nd-century B.C. Now, 2000 years later, Italy is one of the world’s foremost producers, for approximately one-fifth of the world’s wine production.
