Don't Miss This Area
Jun 2018 • Family
We had a driver and a guide through Bellarome Italian Vacations for a day in this beautiful area. We visited Frascati, loved that town and could spend days there, then Nemi which was so charming, and Castel Gandolfo which was stunning and which will be quieter with the Pope's decision to turn the palace into a museum instead of his summer residence. I understand why this is the refuge for the residents of Rome.

A true treasure!
Oct 2018
We took a day trip with a driver who picked us up at the airport and spent the day here since were were unable to check into our hotel before 2-3 in the afternoon! It was a PERFECT way to spend a day after a loooooong flight from Washington DC Nice lunch, light stroll and door to door service HIGHLY recommend!!

Castelli Romani is a beautiful collection of smal Italian towns that have settled in the crater of an ancient volcano.
The rolling hills are beautiful, their highs and lows are lush green with beautiful destitute temples here and there.
It's quite a vision. This is perfect for a walk and a picnic, however there isn't much to see or do unless you enjoy drinking in the towns. They're famous for the drinks!

Interestingly the myth/legend of Diana of the woods which feeds into Wonder Woman's tale has its roots in this area. They also have amazing strawberries!

Another bonus is the anti gravity hill which is a fun gem to explore. You can see you are walking down hill but it feels like you're going uphill and vice versa!

Avoid here if time is precious.
Jun 2016
My rating of 'Poor' is only substantiated by the fact that apart from the views, I feel there are far more interesting things to see in Rome. As everyone is aware of the richness of Roman history, and I would rather visit the more popular locations if I was on a time budget. Sorry!

Extremely close to town, well connected, always charming
Oct 2016
It is called Castelli Romani because this is where the nobility used to have their summer residence (the Pope still does) it is a series of medieval town built around volcanic lakes on the green hills surrounding Rome. Very well connected by fast and affordable regional trains. You can visit Bracciano and its lakeside walk and the majestic Orsini castle, walk around the alleys of Anguillara, visit the Lake of Bracciano, of Albano or the more isolated Martignano (a popular destination for youth in the summer for bonfires and parties). Castel Gandolfo the Pope's Summer Residence, Discover the pre-Roman legends around the mysterious Lake of Nemi, or try the mineral waters of Nepi (in my opinion the most delicious water) it is a world in itself to discover.

When you have been to Rome before and have time visit here !
Nov 2016 • Solo
I have visited Rome several times before and seen all the famous sites, I asked my guide Alessando Vignoni of Rome Limosines to take me to this beautiful area high above Rome. The Pope has his summer residence here. There is a fantastic view of the massive crater lake from the Towns up there, You can stroll around for hours especially with a good tour guide Like Alessandro. I also had some authentic Italian food up there at one of there many good restaurants Even stopped briefly to see the Appin Way and take a pic.

Cooling off in summer
Mar 2016
A train ride out of Termini, a day out to the Alban Hills has much to recommend it especially to cool off in a Roman summer. But beware. Many of the shops will close in the afternoon so expect an extended lunch break. Castelgandolfo is a favourite place overlooking Lago Albano. I want to come back soon when the summer is past and walk right round the lake.

Every peak has a Castle
Jul 2015 • Couples
In Rome you will notice that any peak has a Castle, one as beautiful or more that the other.
Because of this, the skyline is made by amazing castles that once were impervious. But now they are the most beautiful meaning of the Roman age.
Enjoy

Definitely on the itinerary
Jun 2015
The views and the life within the Castelli are lovely. The quaint towns are filled with the everyday that marks a place as something worth seeing. Seems like there are different festivi every week! Try to go on a festival Sunday. It's beautiful.
