Romes's attractions are incomparable to any other destination in the world. However, the large crowds make the whole scene so chaotic. But you'll be surprised that just 25 minutes away from central Rome is a secluded place that's a sweet escape from the busy streets of the city.
Travelers can explore the gorgeous place of L'Orto di Alberico, which is an old restaurant that's surrounded by a vineyard, a wine cellar, a farm and an olive grove. Aside from offering people a gastronomic experience, it also exudes history and culture.
According to the Fiorano website, a man named Alberico Boncompagni Ludovisi came up with an idea of starting the first organic vineyards in the world and planned to put it up on the area's healthy volcanic soil. He started with four grapes and cultivated them using organic methods.
Now, the place is a legend and it offers some of the best dishes when it comes to Italian cuisine. Diners can try its zesty carrot gnocchi that comes with freshly-made goat's cheese, pesto and toasted almonds or its artichoke spaghetti carbonara.
But of course, the whole Foriano experience isn't complete without trying their beverages. When eating one of their delicious dishes, one must try the locally-made cabernet sauvignon-merlot and the sémillon which came from Ludovisis' original grape cuttings that he planted way back in 1946.
The warm ambiance of the place is perfect for any time of the day. According to the New York Post, it offers a nice Italian country-like feel with its stucco farmhouse that comes with a nice fireplace and filled with family memorabilia by the Antinori family.
Guests must remember that reservations are very important before dining in this fine place. Usually, most diners and visitors are Romans so foreign tourists can really get a chance to interact with the locals.
