LUNCH at a typical local trattoria with menu based on ancient local recipes.

Afternoon walk through the stunning gardens of VILLA LANTE, one of Italy's best-preserved examples of Renaissance landscaping designed by the era's most prominent architect, Il Vignola for Cardinal Giovanni Francesco Gambara. He commissioned the numberless water plays, and fountains originating from mountain springs, and called upon the most illustrious artists of the time to decorate the Villa's halls, like Zuccari, Raffaellino da Reggio, Tempesta and Lombardelli. Successively the Villa was owned by several cardinals, among whom duke Ippolito Lante, who gave it its present name.

The day begins with a visit to the stunning 12-century Farfa Abbey and charming surrounding hamlet. Drive on scenic roads passing Medieval villages and stop at one of the most well-preserved, Casperia. Typical country lunch within village and visit. Return to Rome in late afternoon.

In Tivoli, visit the villa, gardens and magnigicent fountains of the Renaissance Villa d'Este, built in the 16th century. you can make this a full day by adding on the visit to Villa Adriana at a short distance from Villa d'Este after luch. The extensive grounds of Hadrian's Villa, created by Emperor Hadrian in the second century is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and can be explored by walking through the ruiins )approx. 1,5hrs)

TOUR 4: OSTIA ANTICA Archaeological Park



At a short distance from Rome center Ostia Antica is an enjoyable and easy day trip away from the bustle of the city. The extraordinary site of Ostia Antica was once the hub of Rome's trade links with the rest of the world. Massively under-visited, it makes a great alternative to Pompeii if you are interested in seeing what's left of a functioning Roman town.
