Lonely Planet's Top Experiences and Sights in Italy: Castelli Romani, Frascati & Tivoli

A pretty pocket of verdant hills and volcanic lakes 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. Frascati is also famous for its aristocratic villas, built as summer retreats by rich Roman families in the late Renaissance and early baroque period.
A summer retreat for ancient Romans and the Renaissance rich, the hilltop town of Tivoli is home to two Unesco World Heritage Sites: Villa Adriana, the sprawling estate of Emperor Hadrian, and the 16th-century Villa d'Este, a Renaissance retreat famous for its landscaped gardens and lavish fountains.
These are the top experiences and sights in Castelli Romani, Frascati and Tivoli, according to Lonely Planet.
