    If you have not been here then you will definitely adore Lago Albano and also take others there too! It will be difficult to get a group all together on the beach with Covid restrictions and Italians love this place too!


    Castel Gandolfo has several places of archaeological interest including the Emissario del Lago Albano and the remains of the Villa of Domitian.
