14 - 19 October, Lazio, ITALY
Gardens of the Castelli Romani - a trip organised by Mediterranean Plants and Gardens

The verdant hills and volcanic lakes just south-east of Rome have attracted Romans wanting to escape from the city for millennia. So the Castelli Romani, as the communes are known, are home to some of the most beautiful villas in Italy, with gorgeous gardens and grounds, and to the famous wine town of Frascati, the hilltop Castel Gandolfo, and the scenic Lago Albano. The group will stay at the elegant Villa Tuscolana Park Hotel, just outside Frascati, and the programme is expected to include visits to: Ninfa, Torrecchia, Villa d'Este, Hadrian's Villa (Villa Adriana), Castel Gandolfo and Villa Landriana. There will also be a full day excursion to Viterbo, to see Villa Lante and the Sacro Bosco, Bomarzo. Christina Thompson will be the guide for the tour. If this trip is oversubscribed a similar tour will be arranged in 2019.
