Thee beautiful sights in Bracciano

As you will notice on your Rome tour, Bracciano in Lazio clearly has a lot to offer to visitors. Moreover, its proximity to Rome, being located just 30 kilometres northwest to it, makes it an ideal stopover or extension of any private guided tour of Rome. That said, clearly there are numerous attractions in Bracciano which make it a visitor’s haven. Accordingly, let us look at 3 beautiful sights in Bracciano in this article.

Lake Bracciano

If you are on a private tour of Rome and headed towards Bracciano, then one of the foremost sights which you will see for sure would be Lake Bracciano. The lake is huge and resplendent – second only to Lake Bolsena in this part of Italy. Moreover, the sheer attraction of Lake Bracciano also lies in the fact that it is a volcanic lake with regard to its origin.

Castello Orsini-Odescalchi

Bracciano – as you will note on your private tour happens to be the location of one of Italy’s largest castles, the Castello Orsini-Odescalchi. Besides its size, what appeals to visitors is also the fact that it has been preserved very well to the extent that it can easily be considered as one of Italy’s most well kept castles. There is also a museum with various artworks and other items of interest which you will enjoy viewing while visiting the Castello Orsini-Odescalchi.

Italian Air Force Museum

Continuing with your guided tour of Bracciano you will come across the Italian Air Force Museum right next to Lake Bracciano. Here you will find famous relics from an era gone by such as the Savoia Marchetti S.79, the Supermarine Spitfire, the Panavia Tornado, and the Caproni Ca.100 among others. Three Schneider Cup racers also form part of the collection here. Additionally, there is an annual ‘Giornata Azzura’ airshow here which you can be privy to if you are lucky enough to be visiting at that time.

Overall, it is amply clear that when it comes to sights, there are plenty in Bracciano. We have restricted ourselves to three of them in this article but when you actually go visiting there, you will find that in fact there are plenty of sights awaiting you on your tour of Bracciano.

Tivoli the best Villas in The Roman Countryside

An ancient and quaint little town in Lazio, about 30 kilometres from Rome, Tivoli clearly has a charm of its own which in many ways is completely unparalleled. Thanks to its historical nature, as a visitor on your private excursion to Tivoli you will certainly find plenty that catches your eye. At the same time, it is the villas in Tivoli which will perhaps draw your attention the most, thanks to their resplendence, uniqueness and sheer beauty which most visitors find completely riveting. With that thought in mind let us look at some of the enchanting villas in Tivoli which MUST be on your “must visit” list, while in Tivoli.

Villa Gregoriana:
Commissioned by none other than Pope Gregory XVI himself, this is a sprawling park (yes, park, more than merely a villa) with beautiful paths that lead on to the Sirens as well as the caves of Neptune. In particular, on your private excursion to Tivoli do not miss The Grand Waterfall which is a major landmark of this villa.

Villa d’Este:
If you want to look at one of the finest examples of Renaissance architecture not only in Lazio but indeed the whole of Italy, look no further than Villa d’Este, especially with its sprawling Italian Renaissance Garden. On your private excursion to Tivoli you will enjoy the view of Villa d’Este very much, thanks to its expansive structure, coupled with the numerous attractions which come amidst the garden, be it The Rometta Fountain or The Fontana dell’Ovato (Oval Fountain). The frescos on the ceilings of the villa are a visual treat in themselves as well.

Villa Adriana:
Villa Adriana is also referred to as Hadrian’s Villa, since it was especially built to serve as a retreat for Roman Emperor Hadrian from the hustle and bustle as well as the roles and responsibilities which came with managing Rome. This is a villa where over the course of your private excursion to Tivoli you will find that there are as many as 30 different buildings over a large and expansive area of at least 1 square kilometer.
An aspect about Villa Adriana which catches the eye of most visitors on their private excursion to Tivoli is the extent to which numerous architectural styles have been combined together, especially Egyptian and Greek, which was particularly a result of Hadrian’s travel to these parts. These are 3 villas we have listed here; of course watch out for more villas in Tivoli when you are there!

Tour to Orvieto and Civita di Bagnoregio

Duration: 9 hrs
Location: Orvieto & Civita di Bagnoregio

TOUR DESCRIPTION:
Amidst any of your numerous private tours of Rome, as you get a little adventurous and head further outside of the entire Greater Rome Area, place which you would simply not want to miss visiting would be Orvieto, a quaint Umbrian city in the Province of Terni as well as Civita Di Bagnoregio, a historical Viterbo town.

ORVIETO:
Full to the brim with history and culture, there is a very wide variety of sights which you will get to see and experience firsthand while on your guided tour of Rome. For instance, you will see that first up the very location of the city is itself so intense, with straight faced cliffs intertwined with huge protective walls.

Additionally the legacy of Papal Residences in Orvieto is grandiose in itself, given the fact that outside of Rome, only Orvieto and Viterbo ever had Papal palaces. So the legacy of the Pope and his connection to Orvieto itself makes a compelling case for visiting the city.

CIVITA DI BAGNOREGIO
The location of the town – atop a plateau that overlooks the entire Tiber river valley itself renders a tour of Civita Di Bagnoregio completely obligatory. Moreover, clearly the historical architecture of the entire town, spanning several centuries is unique and of unparalleled quality which certainly deems a visit to Civita Di Bagnoregio quintessential.

Amidst either of these tours, whether we are referring to a tour of Terni or a tour of Viterbo you will find that every aspect of the trip would be absolutely memorable. For instance, there is a wide range of cuisine to relish on these trips. Further, given the fact that both Orvieto and Civita Di Bagnoregio are at a reasonable distance from Rome proper, there is immense scenic beauty to view all along the way.

Therefore against such a backdrop it becomes amply clear that if you are on the lookout for private tours in Rome which take you a little away from the city and yet have so much to offer, then look no further than a tour of Orvieto or a tour of Civita Di Bagnoregio. Either way it is assured that you will enjoy these tours through and through!
