Excerpt from Days Near Rome, Vol. 1 of 2
The Alhan hills form a totally distinct group, consisting of two principal extinct volcanic craters, somewhat resembling in their relation to each other the meat Neapolitan craters of Vesuvius and Somme. One of them lies within the embrace of the other, just as Vesuvius lies half enclosed by Monte Somme. The walls of the outer Alban crater are of peperino, while those of the inner are basaltic. Both are broken away on the northern side towards Gretta Ferrata and Marine, but on the southern side they are tolerably perfect.
