Itinerary

Rome - Castelli Romani - Rome

Spend a half day in the Castelli Romani, a group of communes in the Roman province situated at the base of the Alban Hills.

Ariccia offers wonderful sightseeing and cultural opportunities; its Bernini-designed Palazzo Chigi is a little gem not to be missed; the church of Santa Maria Assunta is yet another masterwork of the designer of St. Peter's Square in the Vatican City.

What Ariccia and the other towns of the area are really famous for, however, is the finest roast pork (porchetta) in Italy. Fraschette are casual osteria-type eateries whose name is derived from the tradition of nailing the twig of a grapevine to the cellar door to advertise a new vintage. Not long ago, these establishments were so informal that people could carry their own food to the table and just pay for the wine.

The region is also home to some of the oldest wine-producing vineyards in the world. Etruscans and Greek settlers produced wine in this region long before the Romans began cultivating their own vineyards in the 2nd century BC. Now - 2,000 years later - Italy is one of the world's foremost wine-makers, accounting for approximately one-fifth of the world's wine production. A wine taking its name from a Castelli Romani village is the Frascati white wine, whose grapes have been cultivated in this region since the 5th century BC.

Slices of fresh roasted pork, pecorino cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, mushrooms, olives, and artichoke hearts with plenty of extra oil will be yours to taste accompanied by aromatic wines.

This tour is designed for food, wine and nature lovers, but also for those willing to ... do as the Romans do.
