Several archeological sites, medieval abbeys, a beautiful landscape with two volcanic lakes and a great offer of certified wine and food specialities…
The so-called “Roman Castles” are 13 hilly towns about 20 km south of Rome. The area is renowned for its wine production and the breeze from the Alban Hills where Romans escape during hot summer days. In fact, the region has been inhabited since prehistorical times and it became even more attractive when Rome enlarged its influence.
In the Middle Ages castles of various noble families were erected, giving them the name we still use today. The castles became spectacular residences from the Renaissance onwards, but they are mostly unaccessible to visitors.
