Honestly, when we've arrived from Rome to Frascati, I had no idea whatsoever what one can do here...no people, no taxies, nothing...Then I understood: you can only relax here: sleep, eat and of course drink a lot of wine! A taxi driver dropped us in Poggio Regillo, which was 10 minutes away from the train station and she asked for 13 euro, but then we found out from the hotel personell, that we could have arranged shuttle, provided by our hotel. So next time we are there, we should let them know we are arriving, so that they can provide free transportation for us. Well, at the check-in we received a warm welcome from Francesca, Valeria and Sylvia. Girls were very nice and tried to help crazy tourists a lot. We came to Frascati to experience different Italy, agricultural aspect of it and especialle wine cultivation and production, so the region of Frascati was the choice, however, we found out, that the hotel has no connections with any wineries on the basis of business, i.e. they dont offer any wine tours for their guests and the only option is to contact any travel agency in Rome. Oh well, front desk ladies kindly offered us to come to the dinner in their hotel restaurant Accademia, run by a fantastic manager Delfo, where we could experience food and wine pairings. And so we did. We left all our bags in the room, which was nicely groomed, smelled flowers and with a mountain view. Our bathroom had a window too, so it was fun to have a shower with "look at me, world" thought))) Dont tell me I'm perverted, I know that)) haha. By the way, every room has a cool TV, wifi, phone of course, I dont remember iron though...but come on, who needs an iron in Frascati?! We left the room and walked into the yard, which was amazing! Olive garden, drink water fountains, little nice tables and chairs, barbecue station in the end of the garden, bicycles (for no fee). Location is nice and air is so fresh, that you'll sleep like a baby. Time to have dinner came and we met Delfo, who recommended their specials and introduced sommelier to us, who took came of out wine experience. It was a great dinner. We asked our host about wineries to see and wines to taste, and he gave us a kind advice. Thank you very much for that. The day of our departure we met GM of a hotel, Alexandros Muratori, who nicely offered us a cup of coffee and spoke to us about everything in the world I guess, but this time, stolen from him, was a great pleasure to us. Throughout our stay, we felt as a part of a family. poor Sylvia and Francesca, we bugged you so much with our stupid requests)) But they were the most hospitable and nicest people and were trying hard to help us. Thank you very much, our dear family (sorry, but I can't devide you into staff and management). Best wishes from Russia and the USA.
