A full day of fun in the Roman countryside with your private driver! A pretty pocket of verdant hills and volcanic lakes 12 miles (20km) southeast of Rome, the Colli Albani (Alban Hills) and their 13 towns are collectively known as the Castelli Romani. Since ancient times they've provided a green refuge from the city and still, today Romans flock to the area on hot summer weekends. Highlights include the famous wine town of Frascati, hilltop Castel Gandolfo, and the scenic Lago Albano.

After meeting your professional private English speaking driver at your Civitavecchia cruise port, you will receive a brief outline of the day before starting the journey in your private comfortable, air-conditioned transportation. Although the stops are unguided, your driver will give you suggestions on what to see and do in each of the 3 cities. You can decide if you and your private group would like to explore more at one and less at another. Your first stop will be the historic square in the center of Arricia, designed in 1661 by the great architects Bernini and Fontana. In Piazza della Corte you can enter through the beautiful Porta Napoletana and overlook the 17th century Collegiate Church of Santa Maria Assunta and the spectacular Palazzo Chigi. On the typical excursion route, you would have approximately 30 minutes to explore before continuing the scenic drive through Genzano to Nemi, where you will make numerous stops to take fabulous photos from stunning vantage points.

Nemi is a town in the Alban Hills overlooking Lake Nemi, a volcanic crater lake. The town's name derives from the Latin nemus, or "holy wood". In ancient times the area had no town but a grove, site of one of the most famous of Roman cults and temples to Diana, goddess of the hunt, moon, and nature. After 30-45 minutes exploring Nemi, you will begin the short 20-minute drive along the edge of Lake Albano to Castel Gandolfo, the summer residence of the Pope.

The palace and gardens have belonged to the Church since 1596 when the previous owners went bankrupt. Used widely by the papacy under previous pontiffs, Pope Francis has only been there three times and has yet to stay overnight. He has opened up the grounds to be viewed and appreciated by gardeners and nature lovers alike. Following the 45 minute visit, you will continue on to Frascati, famous for great food, vintage wine, and aristocratic villas built for rich Romans during the late Renaissance and early Baroque periods. While you are here you may choose to enjoy a wine tasting where you would sample three local favorites for about $20 Euros paid directly to the tour operator.

Following a stop for lunch at either Castel Gandolfo or Frascati on your own, your driver will return you to your Civitavecchia cruise port.
