Ariccia (Lazio)

Ariccia is a town and comune in the Metropolitan City of Rome, central Italy. It is in the Alban Hills of the Lazio region and could be considered an extension of Rome's southeastern suburbs. One of the Castelli Romani towns, Ariccia is located in the regional park known as the "Parco Regionale dei Castelli Romani". Ariccia was one of the oldest cities of ancient Latium, and as the leader of the Latin League was a serious contender against Rome during the early days of the Roman Republic. In modern times, the town has become famous for its porchetta, pork that is slowly roasted with herbs and wild fennel, and it has been known since historical times for its wine. The most noteworthy sight in Ariccia is the northern entrance from the famous bridge which leads to Bernini's Baroque square.

@Spott2940 asks:

We will be traveling to Rome in late April and will be spending 3 months in Italy in 2021.  We would love to meet someone for coffee while we are in Rome just to talk about life in Italy as an expat.  We are considering moving to Italy and are doing our research.  Anyone interested in meeting up?
