Without a doubt the highlight of our trip was this B&B. Mary and Mario are the loveliest, warmest hosts yet. We were welcomed as if by beloved relatives. Their love of Italy, knowledge of Ancient Rome, immaculate home (whose beautiful decor reflects their backgrounds in architecture and antiques), their helpful travel tips, etc. just made for a wonderful, memorable visit.
Mary's being fluent in both English and Italian proved invaluable in advising us on shopping, dining, etc. and especially in scheduling transportation to and fro during our stay.
We were completely charmed by the B&B and would definitely recommend it to others. We hope to return to relaxing, quiet Albano Gemello!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Near Rome in the Regional Park of the Castelli Romani, this small cozy B&B is situated in Albano Laziale (ancient site of Albalonga) and is family-run by Mary (Canadian) along with her family Mario and Marcello. Albano is the first hill-top town you come across taking the Southern route from the Eternal City on the Appian Way. Well-connected with Rome-Termini by local bus and trains every 15/20min./1Hour respectively. B&B Albero Gemello is definitely the right choice for tourists who would like to spend their evenings in a cool and relaxing environment, enjoying the genuine home-produced food in the many wine-cellars, restaurants and pizza-places, after a tiresome day taking in the awesome beauty of Rome. Here meals are a time of leisure, accompanied by the famous Colli Albani wines & served by charming robust locals. Excellent quality/price ratio. ... more less
