A day in the most beautiful villages of the Roman Castles: from the temples erected by the Latin civilizations, passing through Ancient Rome and the culture of wine up to the medieval period. Available as a day excursion from Rome or in two days.
Visit of the town famous for the Sanctuary of Fortuna Primigenia, a sacred complex dedicated to the goddess Fortuna, one of the best examples of late-republican architecture in ancient Italy.
The important museum that collects the finds from the Sanctuary as well as the wonderful Nile Mosaic, one of the most famous masterpieces of the Hellenistic period.
At the end of the visit we will take a break inside Palazzo Barberini.
We will continue the tour with a walk to Castel San Pietro Romano, a set for many films after the Second World War.
In the late morning we will move to a local winery.
After a walk through the vineyards, we will visit the cellar, with an explanation of the grape processing techniques, barrel aging and combinations. Together with a sommelier we will have the opportunity to taste three locally produced wines, paired with a lunch consisting of an appetizer and a main course.
We will be able to admire the two 1/5 scale reconstructions of Caligula’s ships recovered in an archaeological enterprise conducted from 1928 to 1932 in Lake Nemi. The original ships were lost in a fire in 1944, but the museum does not lack many artifacts from the ships, in addition to what was found in the nearby Sanctuary of Diana.
