Day 1

We will have a hiking tour rich in history, devotion and nature on the Via Francigena, starting from Castel Gandolfo and ending in Velletri. We’ll be walking along the most fascinating path in the “Parco dei Castelli Romani” from the heights of Lake Albano all the way to Lake Nemi, learning about legends on the disappearance of ships and tales of priests. After enjoying a delicious picnic in Nemi, we will keep walking along the Monte Artemisio path and finally reach the town of Velletri.
