A Taste of Italy & Rome Overview
hrs Estimate Duration
Admire a lush landscape dotted with historic towns, farms and grand villas. You’ll travel to Lake Albano, situated in the crater of an extinct volcano, and the hilltop town of Castel Gandolfo, a pretty village that clusters around the papal palace, where the popes have had their summer residence for centuries. Enjoy a walk in the medieval village and see the exterior of the palace.
Drive through the rolling hills of Rome’s wine growing region and stop at a local farmhouse. You’ll be greeted by a member of the family, who will show you around the property. Mama herself will demonstrate how to make fresh pasta and you may give it a try if you like, before settling down for a homemade Italian lunch, accompanied of course by home produced wines.
After lunch, drive to the heart of Rome, the Piazza Venezia and see the flamboyant memorial to King Vittorio Emanuele II, the first king of Italy, and the Venice Palace, which has been a papal residence, an embassy, Mussolini’s headquarters and is now a museum. View the exteriors of the Colosseum, Roman Forum and other highlights of the city.
