Tour to the Roman castles: Nemi, Ariccia and Castel Gandolfo, a day from Rome

star-5
The Roman castles are located in the territory of the ancient Lazio Vetus, about 30 km from Rome, they are a series of small villages scattered on a territory of volcanic origin, immersed in the green of hills, woods and lakes; there are fourteen villages rich in history, traditions and popular festivals. The origin of the name of the Roman castles dates back to the fourteenth century, when many inhabitants of Rome took refuge in the castles of Roman feudal families such as: Savelli, Annibaldi, Orsini and Colonna, to escape the economic and political difficulties caused by the Avignon Prison. The Roman castles are located on the hills, in the area of the Alban hills, a short distance from each other; this holiday day will give you the opportunity to visit the main hill towns of Nemi, Ariccia and Castel Gandolfo; in the whole area of the castles, agriculture is the main economic and employment resource, together with the production of excellent and renowned wines.
