Tour Description

.

Bracciano Castle / Odescalchi Castle. Part of Rome's Enchanting Countryside Tour with Rome Chauffeur

.

Your Pre-Cruise Rome's Enchanting Countryside Tour begins leisurely drive through the Roman countryside will take you to Lake Bracciano, a pristine volcanic lake that is one of the most popular spots for local Romans when they wish to escape city life for a day.

Overlooking the lake is Bracciano Castle (formally named Odescalchi Orsini Castle), located in the town of Bracciano itself.

A visit of this imposing Renaissance military fortress will transport you to distant times in history and enchant you with vestiges of princes, dukes, feudal lords, and noble families.

The castle is still the private property of the Odescalchi family, and the interior of the castle has become a historical museum open to the public to visit.

As you make your way through the castle and private quarters of Kings and Popes, you will see 6 centuries worth of artwork, furniture, weaponry, books and manuscripts, providing you with a genuine glimpse into the private spaces and lives of some of Italy’s most powerful historical figures.

.

Ceri

.

Following Bracciano, you will continue through the countryside side to Ceri, a small fortified medieval hamlet nestled on top of a steep cliff. Time appears to have stood still for more than a thousand years in Ceri, making it one of the most charming historical villages in the region.

Food is excellent in Ceri, and the family owned restaurants here draw in many locals who travel to Ceri from nearby towns and cities to enjoy the atmosphere and the delicious cuisine.

.

After lunch you will be driven to Civitavechia where you will be delivered by your chauffeur right on the pier next to your ship for quick and easy embarkation.

.

Please note that Bracciano Castle is closed on Mondays. If you wish to take this countryside tour on Monday, we suggest substituting Bracciano Castle with a visit to a couple of the lovely lakeside historic towns and promenade for a lovely stroll.
