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 from Rome and renowned for wine production and the breeze of the Alban Hills where the Romans escape during the hot summer days. In fact the area has been inhabited since prehistorical times and it became immediately attractive when Rome enlarged its influence.
In the Middle Ages castles of various noble families were erected, giving the denomination still in use today. The castles became fabulous residences from the Renaissance onwards, but they are mostly unaccessible to visitors.
