From emperors to popes everyone loves Roman Castles

 

The area of the Roman Castles is located in the Roman countryside on the Alban Hills and includes:

Castel Gandolfo: In the area of the Roman Castles rises Castel Gandolfo, which is well-known because the Popes use to spend their summer in this city in the Apostolic Palace.

The city houses the Olympic Stadium that staged the rowing events during the Rome Olympics.

In the city it is possible to visit some rests of the “roman domus” dating back to the republican and the imperial age, such as the Domitian’s Villa, which is the biggest one. Moreover, it is possible to visit the religious building of the “Collegiata pontificia di San Tommaso da Villanova” built by the famous artist Gian Lorenzo Bernini.

Lake Nemi: the Lake Nemi is located between the cities of Nemi and Genzano, in the southern area of Rome. In the past, the lake was a place for fun and vacation of ancient romans. The name “Nemi” derives from latin “Nemus” or “Holy wood” and it is referred to the near wood which is dedicated to the goddess Diana”, in fact, Lake Nemi is also called “Diana’s mirror”. In the area of the lake there is also a temple dedicated to the goddess.

Nemi: Nemi is the smallest city of the area of Roman Castles. It is located in the center of the Alban Hills and its historical city center rises in a strategic position that allows to admire the view on the lake. The city is famous for the cultivation of strawberries on the rivers of the same name lake. It is also known because in 1927-1932, two roman boats dating back to the age of the emperor Caligula, were recovered from the Lake Nemi and are now conserved in the Roman Ships Museum.

Ariccia: Ariccia is one of the most famous cities in the area of the Roman Castles. It is well known thanks to the historical and architectural works of the artist Bernini and the religious importance of the “Sanctuary of Santa Maria di Galloro”.

Typical of this area are the “fraschette”, a particular kind of tavern, in where it is possible to taste the “porchetta” (a kind of pork meat), the gastronomic symbol of the city and many other delicius dishes.
