itinerary

  1. For centuries the Papal Palace at Castel Gandolfo was locked to the public, but in 2016, after over four centuries, Pope Francis finally opened its doors to visitors. Now, on this morning trip from Rome, you will see the palace and gardens, and learn about their fascinating history.
  2. In the Palace, made fit for a pope by Urban VIII in the 17th century, you will get a glimpse into the private lives of the leaders of the Catholic Church. Discover some of the Holy See’s hidden treasures as you tour the palace with an audio-guide in your chosen language. Then enjoy a ride around the magnificent Barberini Gardens in an eco-friendly golf cart and savor the views over the magnificent Lake Albano. Lunch will be provided in the lovely ‘Padiglione del Riposo’ before you head back into Rome.
  3. To make your day even more memorable you will have the opportunity to add a tour of the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel and St Peter’s Basilica with our expert guide onto your outing.
