About the Area
The apartment is situated in Rocca Priora, a small town in the Metropolitan City of Rome, Lazio, Italy. It is one of the Castelli Romani towns, about 25 kilometers (16 mi) southeast of Rome. Our holiday property is located in a beautiful mountain landscape, right in front of Monte Salomone, in a quiet location where you can enjoy a stunning panoramic view of the Castelli Romani National Park, in the Colli Albani area.
The Archaeological area of Tusculum is easily accessible by foot from us: the ancient Via Sacra is now a world heritage site, crisscrossed by a myriad of walking/cycle trails.
Close to Frascati and Grottaferrata, the town has a privileged position being the highest town of Castelli Romani (748 m.a.m.s.l.). It is an ideal base from which to explore an area once described as having the richest pure air because of the altitude: the apartment is 690 m.a.m.s.l.
The Pneumologic Hospital A.C. Cartoni, which a Pulmonary Rehabilitation program is dedicated to helping the patients breathe easier, is only 1km from us.
There are many great places to visit and paths in the woods to explore within a 10 km radius from the apartment. It is
also well placed to access the Pratoni del Vivaro where the Italian National Olympic Committee set up a horse racing center in 1959.
In short, there is something for every interest and everybody in the Lazio region and all in easy reach from the house!
