Why go to Rome?
Just an hour southeast from the crowds, the excitement, the sights of Rome is the peaceful Parco Regionale dei Castelli Romani. Take the FL4 train from Rome to Velletri. From there it's a short taxi ride to the heart of the park.With your hiking gear, a couple of days of food, and your camping gear, you can explore the high woodlands, hills and small farming villages. Keep your eyes open for a wild boar. Lago Albano and Lago di Nemi are beautiful volcanic lakes well worth a visit (and a dip).
