Castel Gandolfo: Apostolic Palace and Gardens of the Pontifical Villas

In order to enjoy your Saturday, you can start the day with Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel in the early-morning time and then you can continue with exploring Vatican Gardens (audio guidance is available). After this start, you will leave from Vatican Train Station for the classical Italian town, as if it is a scene from a fairy tale, called “Castel Gandolfo”, where popal summer residence can also be found.

Situated on the rim of the crater, and overlooking Lake Albano, the village is known mainly on account of its choice as a Papal Summer residence. The Palazzo Papale was built by Pope Urban VIII in 1624 and it has been used by most pontiffs since then. The Papal Villa has a magnificent park and contains the telescopes of the Vatican Observatory. Castel Gandolfo was built according to legend over the ruins of Alba Longa, founded by Ascanius, son of Aeneas, and was the chief town of the Latin League in the days of the Kings of Rome.

Next, by using the shuttle, take the road for Pontifical Villas. Remember the Vatican Gardens time – we you impressed? If yes, prepare for more: you will see the summer residence of pope. You will be offered a bus tour around the place with audio guidance and you will also have free time to explore the place, eat some Italian food, shop and have a cup of coffee.

Ready to try the Italian cuisine? Have Italian lunch meal including an appetizer, main meal, soft drink and a dessert of your choice. After the rest time, you should visit the Apostolic Palace – an amazing place, designed by Carlo Maderno. Did you know that Pope uses this place as home sometimes? Yes, he is. By the end of this astonishing day, you will return to Rome with train again.


Appetizers: Non-alcoholic aperol; mixed fried food (Ascoli olives, potatoes croquettes, mini-supplì); various types of cheese from local farms; delicious cold meat cuts; porchetta DOP (roasted pork, traditional); three seasonal vegetables; bruschettas of your choice.
