This tour was very enjoyable. It was nice to see another part of Italy outside of Rome. The wine and delicious food in Frascati was an unexpected treat on this tour.

This was a lovely way to spend an afternoon exploring the area out side of Rome. I had never heard of Castelli Romani but was looking for a way to experience some of the countryside around the city. The views of the charming hilltop towns were lovely, and it was nice to stop to get a view of the Pope's summer residence of Castelgandolfo from Lake Albano. The highlight was a walk through the town of Frascati with a stop for a lovely snack and local white wine. I look forward to visiting the area again!

We enjoyed the tour very much. The guide was very informative and made the tour interesting. The meal in Frascati was unexpected, but was very enjoyable. We would certainly recommend the tour to those wishing to get away from the bustle of the city and learn a bit of history of the surrounding are.

Good professionally conducted tour, with interesting and informative commentary. If some kind of tour of each of the villages was possible, instead of the food and wine provision, this may be an alternative. Would recommend.

The view of Castelgandolfo was from a distance and while traveling; it would have been nice to at least get some pictures!

We did not actually visit any castles on this tour; the name is very misleading. But the bus drive was worth it to actually see outside of Rome proper. Plus, the quaint town with the wine tasting was charming.

Note from Viator: Castelgandolfo, Frascati, Rocca di Papa and Grottaferrata belong to an area known as Castelli Romani. In English this term translates to "Roman Castles", but the sites visited are not castles or buildings rather a group of small medieval villages. Thanks for the feedback, and we reverted back to Italian to avoid future confusion. If you would like to see the area on a map, click here http://www.itwg.com/area9157.

This WAS a good tour - but the discription doesn't match the tour. This was pretty much a dinner in Frascati with a few photo-stops on the way. You don't get to Castelgandolfo, you will only see it from the other side of the lake, which disappointed me a lot.
The guide was good and nothing was wrong with this tour - but it just wasn't what I had expected.

We took this trip in order to see the countryside around Rome and get out of the city for a few hours. The tour was interesting and the countryside was lovely. Our only change would be to be able to spend more time in the town of Frascati and its shops rather than simply sitting at one restaurant in town. The restaurant provided more food than we had expected, but we missed getting to roam the town itself.
