Rome in summer season can be unbearably hot. This was certainly the reason why already in ancient times well-off Romans chose to reside in the so called Alban Hills, about 15 miles Southeast of the city, and this is why from 1628 popes revived this old tradition. The Papal palace in Castel Gandolfo is the summer residence of the popes, which beautifies the lovely square of the village.

Then it’s time to visit Nemi. The Medieval enchanting village was built on the crest of an ancient volcano, nowadays an impressive lake, and is highly celebrated for the strawberries produced along the slopes of the lake of Nemi.
