Have you ever dreamt of a fairy tale wedding in an historical and charming villa overlooking one of the most romantic city in the world?Well this is a dream that may come true here in Rome at the Castelli Romani area, 20 minutes from the center of Rome, where there are the ville Tuscolane; gorgeous examples of late Renaissance and Baroque buildings.
Those splendid villas were built by famous architects as Borromini, Carlo Maderno and Giacomo della Porta for bishops, popes and their families.
Rooms completely filled with colored frescos that represent nature and classical myths, and beautiful Italian gardens with unique fountains that give you the chance to live stories and mysteries of the distinguished families who used to live there.
It will be not hard for you to imagine the many parties and feasts that took place and that showed the richness and their wealth of the owners… and it was not unusual at the time that prohibited love affairs took place in the gardens…….
The villas are surrounded by the beautiful Tuscolana countryside, amongst hills that are thick with woods, vineyards and olive trees that have been used, for centuries, to make excellent wine, oil and other delicacies for the noble families in Rome.
A wedding in one of those charming venues could also be the occasion to discover our territory.
