Frascati-Lake Gandolfo

In talking with our arranged gude in Rome- I asked about an independent day trip to Frascati. She said definitely worth the trip, especially if we had lunch at a restaurant overlooking Lake Gandolfo- are they close enough to each other to do that? I can't tell exactly.

The lake is Lake Albano. Castel Gandolfo overlooks it; Frascati does not.

Frascati and Castel Gandolfo are on separate lines of the regional train FR4. You'd have to backtrack from Frascati to Ciampino to get to Castel Gandolfo.

Look at www.trenitalia.com/.

No, from Ciampino a different train to Castel Gandolfo. Please look at the link provided. Enter Rome-Frascati, Frascati-Castel Gandolfo, Castel Gandolfo-Rome to see train times and connections. To see prices, enter a time more than six hours ahead.

Thank you- I did look at the link- I will try again. For a novice, the site is a little confusing....perhaps we need to forget sightseeing at Frascati and just go to the important part.....eating at Pagnaelli's!
