- 8 hours from Rome
- 9 hours from Civitavecchia dock.
This is a hugely successful tour, thanks to my clients who asked me several times to drive them to unknown local places, not on the “tourist trail”! Here they are! An hour’s drive from Rome is Bomarzo and the Garden of Monsters, a romantic and quirky place where you can take a wonderful walk through its huge and breathtakingly beautiful overgrown, bizarre stone sculptures depicting mythical creatures, scattered around the grounds of this former Duke's residence. What can be said about a small leaning house which serves as a passage from the upper to the lower garden? You will love it!
In just five minutes by car, we proceed to Bagnaia where you can stroll through the narrow lanes of an ancient Etruscan city and visit Villa Lante. The villa's Renaissance gardens feature pavilions, fountains and an elaborate and cunning maze. During the tour our drivers will be happy to suggest either some local restaurants (where you just pay for the food, not the view!) or something on the way if you want to be quick (closed on Monday). Is there a special place you want to go visit? Did you hear about a spot that isn’t on “the tourist trail”? Please, tell us!
