  Europe, Italy, Rocca Priora
 

Location Information:

Rocca Priora is a small town and comune in the province of Rome, Lazio, Italy. It is one of the Castelli Romani on the Alban Hills about 25 km south east of Rome, is situated in the Regional Park known as the "Parco Regionale dei Castelli Romani".

The Castelli Romani ("Castles of Rome") is a group of communes in the province of Rome, Italy. They are located at short distance south-east to Rome, at the feet of the Alban Hills.
The area of the Castelli occupies an ancient, fertile volcanic area which has allowed since ancient times a flourishing agriculture. The former crater is occupied by two lakes, the Lake of Nemi and that of Albano.

Starting from the Romans, it was an area frequented by the noblemen of Rome for its fresher climate during summer: the tradition was followed by the Popes which still have their summer residence in Castel Gandolfo, on the Lake Albano. Families which ruled in the castelli include Orsini, Colonna, Chigi, Aldobrandini and Ruspoli.

The Castelli Romani are:
Albano Laziale
Ariccia
Castel Gandolfo
Colonna
Frascati
Genzano di Roma
Grottaferrata
Lanuvio
Lariano
Marino
Monte Compatri
Monte Porzio Catone
Nemi
Rocca di Papa
Rocca Priora
Velletri

The area is renowned for the production of wine, including the white wine of Frascati. There is also a wine called Castelli Romani, and has some very good qualities in the wine!

Ariccia is celebrated for its porchetta (roasted pork meat). Local biscuits include the so-called maritozzi. Pizzas here tend to be with a thin, crusty base (typically Roman) and rectangular, with portions often sold by weight, allowing a wider choice of flavours.

Typical courses for a meal include starter, pasta, main course, dessert and coffee (espresso), perhaps washed down with a sambuca, grappa or other digestif.
