Visit Fiano RomanoFiano rules over the Tiber Valley. Once, Fiano had its own port and a ferry used by Onorino II-the AntiPapa- when he walked towards Rome, Pasquale II prisoner of Enrico V, Lotario II and Pio II in 1464. The castle that towers over the ancient urban centre was built through various ages. In the middle of the castle there's a stately round tower that's tall 30m with hamming laces; inside it, there are many rooms that have the same original look. You enter in the old part of town passing through the Capena door: originally, the door was equipped with wooden wings and its hinges are still visible.
Castello ducale Orsini: the castle was modified many times during the Middle Age. The first change was brought in 1439, when Niccolò Orsini extended the dimensions of the castle adding the wing that appears Porta Capena, after having inherited it from Orso and Elisabetta Orsini, He added it also a sophisticated renaissance style. Castello ducale Orsini has been property - beginning from 1690- of Ottoboni, Fiano's dukes. To know something more about Fiano, visit the official site of Fiano Romano municipality .
