The Area

The Castelli Romani (“Castles of Rome”) is the name given to the group of communes in the province of Rome.  They are located a short distance south-east to Rome, at the foot of the Alban Hills.  The area of the Castelli occupies an ancient, fertile volcanic area, which has allowed for flourishing agriculture since ancient times.  The large crater is filled with two lakes, the Lake of Nemi and the Lake Albano. 

For centuries this has been an area frequented by Romans.  Noblemen of ancient Rome traveled to these hills for their fresh climate during the summer months.  The tradition was followed by the Pope, who still has a summer residence in Castel Gandolfo, on Lake Albano.  Historic families who have ruled in the castelli include the Orsini, Colonna, Chigi, Aldobrandini, and Ruspoli.  The cool climate, breathtaking views of the lakes, and the fertile fields have transformed this place into a holiday resort for visitors from all backgrounds, as demonstrated by some wonderful villas and palaces. 

Guests of Palazzo Romano will appreciate the characteristic mild winters and cool summers, in addition to the ability to reach the capital city in as little as 25 minutes by train.  Palazzo Romano is a perfect place for those who want to visit Rome during the day and retreat to a quiet paradise each afternoon.  Many side trips are possible including those related to the region’s nature, food, and history.  The area is renowned for the production of excellent wines, including the white wine of Frascati and the Castelli Romani.  There is a nearby archaeological park consisting of many acres of forests and fields, as well as the ruins of the villa of Emperor Tiberius, an ancient amphitheater, the spectacular Tusculum Theatre and a 2,600-year-old cistern.


A railway line runs from Rome’s Stazione Termini.The rail journey is very scenic, passing Rome’s aqueducts, vineyards and market gardens before skirting Lake Albano.If guests are flying into Ciampino Airport and want to use public transportation to reach Palazzo Romano, they will be able to catch a train at the Ciampino Airport station or the bus at Anagnina Metro Station without going into Rome.

Palazzo Romano is an ideal place for a family reunion. The countryside is classically Italian and peaceful, and the vicinity of the railroad station enables guests to experience Rome without driving into the city.
