some of the small historic towns to see how the locals live. The tour also offers you an opportunity to visit the two main hill towns of Castel Gandolfo and Frascati. The Castelli Romani hill towns, of ancient and medieval origin, are celebrated for their lush green scenery, volcanic lakes, authentic cuisine, and local white wines. In medieval times, the towns became the domains of various powerful land-owning families. Many of these families also controlled the fortunes of Rome and the papacy during this epoch. The town of Castel Gandolfo became the property of the popes. At the end of the 16th and early in the 17th century, aristocratic Romans began to build luxurious villas in and around the Castelli Romani hill towns, just as the ancients had done. The popes decided that they, too, should have a country villa in the Roman hill towns, and the papal residence in Castel Gandolfo is the result. The tour ends with a wine tasting and lunch at a local winery.
