The tours are in Italian except in high summer or... More

And just down the street you have the opportunity to taste amazing and (nationally awarded) pastries and gelato at Caffe Grand'Italia. There is also Lago di Bracciano (the lake of Bracciano) which is incredibly beautiful and relaxing.... More
