Territory and Excursions
Holidays afford a crucial opportunity for some "me time", for your own passions and interests. Whether you want your holiday to be all about relaxation, sunbathing, food and drink, sport, culture or entertainment (or a mix of some or all of the above), the Parco della Gallinara is the perfect base for your daily excursions.
You can spend your days in Rome – probably the world's most beautiful and fascinating city – or in so-called "southern Etruria", where most of the surviving masterpieces of Etruscan art were created; you can appreciate the beauty of the landscapes of the Castelli Romani area, which is renowned for its historical and cultural heritage, traditions and extraordinarily rich rural cuisine; you can visit the six Pontine Islands, which can be reached from the coast in a couple of hours – the stunning look of these islands is complemented by the warm welcome extended by the local fisherfolk; and you can re-live the incredible history of Anzio – one-time capital of the Volsci people, who were absorbed into the Roman Empire – where Emperors Caligula and Nero were born and to where Cicero withdrew to reorganise the remains of his library. Anzio is also well-known internationally as the site of one of the most celebrated and daring assaults of the Second World War – the landing of Allied troops on 22 January 1944. If fun is what you're after, Rome's theme parks will be your destinations of choice, from Zoomarine to Rainbow Magicland!
Our vicinity to Rome – the global capital of art, history and culture – makes the Parco della Gallinara an ideal place to spend a natural holiday, far from the urban chaos but with the option to reach the Eternal City in less than an hour. The Co.Tra.L. bus line covers the route and has a stop just a stone's throw from our entrance. For specific information on the timetables and bus stops/train stations, please visit www.trenitalia.com (trains) and www.cotralspa.it (buses). Once you make it into Rome, the only thing for it is to head out in search of its monuments, churches, museums, bridges and famous districts.

Just a few miles away are the Castelli Romani, nestling in lush greenery, and rich in enchanting locations and breathtaking panoramas. The Castelli Romani Nature Reserve is a fascinating natural oasis. Some of the well-known villages and towns in this area include: Albano Laziale, Ariccia, Nemi and Castel Gandolfo, the Pope's summer residence, lying behind the lake of the same name. The local culinary traditions are renowned throughout Italy and beyond, and it is here that you can savour numerous typically Roman dishes.
What would a holiday be without fun?
Just 20 km away is Zoomarine, the theme park with attractions to suit everyone, especially families with young children; you can marvel at the shows involving dolphins, seals and fowl, and have great fun on the carousels and water slides. For more info, visit: www.zoomarine.it
