  • Another easy day trip to Rome is Frascati. Frascati is famous for their white wine and is an easy 25 minute train ride from Roma Termini and costs only 2.10 euro. The town is charming and if you’d like to go on a great laid-back tour I recommend The Old Frascati Wine Tour http://www.oldfrascati.com
    The tour is run by an American woman who lives in Frascati and is part of one of the wine making families on the tour. Buon Viaggio!
