Strawberries......in the surroundings of Rome..!

 

Nemi is a town and comune in the province of Rome , in the Alban Hills overlooking Lake Nemi, a volcanic crater lake. It is 6 km NW of Velletri and about 30 km southeast of Rome.
Nemi itself has a few late medieval to 18th‑century churches, but its main monument, dominating both town and landscape, is the Castello Ruspoli, the core of which dates to the 10th century.
Nemi is famous for its wild strawberries, which are smaller and sweeter than commercially grown varieties. Nemi's strawberries are grown on the sides of the volcanic crater, which creates a microclimate that retains the warmth of the sun and provides a wind shield. Nemi conducts an annual festival of strawberries. This little town is amazingly well known in Rome for its climate. People come from Rome to taste these wonderful strawberries with cream and admire the gorgeous LAKE OF NEMI here after in the picture.
