Castelli Romani Park

Overview

A historical-naturalistic treasure in Lazio 

The Parco Regionale dei Castelli Romani is a fascinating protected area in the Colli Albani area. Created to protect the rich natural and cultural characteristics of its 15,000 hectares, it includes 15 municipalities and boasts a territory with many faces: from the Velletri plain to the Rocca di Papa peaks of Monte Cavo and Monte delle Faete, passing by the two lakes of volcanic origin, Albano and Nemi. 

A must-see in the area is the historic Villa Barattolo in Rocca di Papa with guided nature trails and courses on mycology and environmental protection. The entire picturesque medieval village of Rocca di Papa offers breathtaking views of houses clinging to the rock. Then there is the archaeological site of Tuscolo, for a captivating journey through time, and the Villa Aldobrandini, one of the most important in Frascati. A stop in Ariccia to taste the renowned roasted suckling pig speciality, porchetta, is a must for gourmands. Throughout the area, you can also enjoy pasta all'amatriciana, one of the most famous traditional dishes in Lazio.
