Golf holidays in and around Rome - Marco Simone, Castelgandolfo.

Golf in Rome

Golf holidays - Rome and Castelgandolfo

The city of Rome is quite a remarkable place for its architecture, art and history.  Rome can be great for golf holidays too, just choose your location carefully as the golf courses around Rome are fairly thinly spread.  Another factor is the traffic in Rome - heavy at the best of times!

For these reasons we recommend staying on the southeastern outskirts of Rome around Castelgandolfo where you will find the best concentration of golf courses close to Rome.  An added bonus is that Castelgandolfo, besides being the Pope's Summer residence (or maybe due to), has plenty to offer the passing tourist in the way of hostelries along its short high street and small piazza.


Castelgandolfo sits on the rim of an extinct volcano, the caldera now filled with the waters of Lake Albano.  Around the lake are beaches and more places to dine out - so hungry golfers will be well catered for!

Getting to Rome and Castelgandolfo

Not surprisingly Italy's capital has plenty of flights everyday to its two airports - Fiumicino and Ciampino.

For golf at Castelgandolfo, Ciampino is by far the closest airport being only half an hour away.  However Fiumicino is not too much further thanks to the ring-road that circumvents the astonishing Roman traffic.
