Walk with Mamma Maria in the roman countryside "la campagna romana"!

A walking tour in "La Campagna Romana", the Roman countryside, will be a memory for life. That all roads lead to Rome is something most people probably heard of, and it is true! There are plenty of trails and ancient roads that offers a nature and a scenery so beautiful that they almost takes our breath away. A hike for body and soul! And Maria knows her way around...

We have many hiking trails to choose from depending on your preferences, and we recommend a long weekend to get the most out of the experience, maybe also combined with a cooking course? Naturally, we adapt the walking tour to your needs and expectations. A hike with us means a blend of botany, archeology, fine food and art, just a few steps away from Rome.

We walk through the woods and fields, open landscape with mountains in the distance and we pass ancient villages, each with its own special atmosphere. Join us to experience the same idylls like so many people before us – artists who passed through here during the Grand Tour and not least the swedish King Gustav VI, also him fond of "la campagna romana"!

Welcome to Nemi and the beautiful surroundings with Mamma Maria walking tours!
