Ancient road through olive garden, Frascati, Italy

Frascati (Italy) is an ancient city, which is situated on the hills above Rome, in the South. It’s famous by its view on the Rome. The view is especially beautiful at night, but there are other unknown sight-seen – ancient villas and gardens.

I’ve been there many times before I discovered this side of the city and its surrounding. Many villas are private and their gardens are closed, but some of them are a national heritage and gardens of such villas are open for the public. You can smell a mystery and history in such places. Villas are full with the underground passages and hidden rooms for secret society meetings. On the villa, which I visited, Lions Club still meets. Some gardens still have parts of an ancient paved roads which were leading to Rome.

These hills are also famous by the city named Castel Gandolfo. The summer residence of the Pope is located there, but this is a story for another post.

Walking around the lake you will collect new perspectives of the church.

The lake became a popular photography place. That evening I was sharing my location with 3 Hungarian photographers, who were equipped by high end cameras (Nikon D810), heavy tripods and Lee filters.

See you on the photo tour,  Cheers!
