CASTEL GANDOLFO and GROTTAFERRATA - LOVELY DRIVE TO ROMAN HILLTOP TOWNS
This day trip is an interesting and relaxing escape from the bustling city center for Romans who love to spend their Sundays in these enchanting natural settings and we want you to understand why! You will have free time to explore Castel Gandolfo, home of the Pope’s summer residence and located on the gentle hillside overlooking the gorgeous Lake Albano. You will also have free time to visit another charming little town, Grottaferrata, which is home to the Greek Church and Monastery, founded by St Nilus in 1004 AD on the grounds of an ancient Roman villa, where the roman Iron Crypt gives its name to the town. The Abbey is an art treasure with spectacular byzantine mosaics and icons and precious frescoes by Domenichino in the Farnesian Chapel. Today it is an exarchate subject to the Holy See.
