She was missing the Countryside and Frascati was not far away from home than she thought would be a good idea to visit this Town famous for its White wine and its magnificent viloas more like Palaces really.
The First one right in the middle of Frascati is The Villa Aldobrandini, still property of the Aldobrandini family, it is known as Belvedere for its charming location overlooking the valley toward the city of Rome.

From Frascati we drove through other towns to the ROCCA DI PAPI
Rocca di Papa is a small town and comune in the province of Rome, Lazio, Italy. It is one of the Castelli Romani about 25 km south east of Rome on the Alban Hills. It is bounded by the other communes of Velletri, Rocca Priora, Monte Compatri, Grottaferrata, Albano and Marino. It is the centre of the Regional Park known as the “Parco Regionale dei Castelli Romani and has amazing viés to Rome and its narrow vicolas make the visit really interesting! You do need a Smart car to get by!
