The secrets of Cori, the ancient village near Rome with good wine!
Cori, just over an hour away from Rome, used to have splendid temples dedicated to the Gods: the Temple of Hercules overlooks the city and a breathtaking landscape stretching to the sea; the Temple of Dioscuri, a place of worship and treasury of the city which then became part of a church; The ancient Forum and its ruins, which can be seen along the road via delle Colonne.
Our tour continues through the Medieval frescoes in the Oratory of the Annunziata, which is considered national monument, and inside of the Monumental Complex of S. Oliva, one of the most important cultural sites in the region.
