In quaint Central Italy, you’ll enter the town of Bracciano. The charming and picturesque old-world village is home to one of the most impressive and best preserved medieval feudal fortresses: Odescalchi Castle.
Once used by Roman nobles for its unparalleled strategic positioning, it is now the esteemed site of celebrity weddings and film productions. The castle stands majestically above the city with a breahtaking view of Bracciano Lake.
Your guide will escort you through its impressive dining rooms, armories (where antique lances, shields, swords and other medieval weaponry is still displayed), bedrooms, kitchens and other castle chambers.
With our exclusive partnership, you'll be treated to the unique opportunity of visiting the Princess’s secret garden – which today has been the location of celebrity weddings including Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes and many others.
You’ll also get to visit the Princess’s private rooms, not open to the general public. This chamber, too, has been utilized by famous brides and grooms, now amorous newlyweds.
Once you’ve fully explored the mystery, magic and secrecy shielded by the impenetrable walls of Odescalchi Castle, enjoy time on you own to stroll among the charming alleyways of Bracciano.
The tour ends with a true local 3-course lunch with wine in a restaurant overlooking Lake Bracciano.
