Your experience

Description

Your journey into the life of the former popes starts at the so called “Stazione San Pietro” (St. Peter’s Station). The special Vatican train will bring you to Castel Gandolfo, where 17th century summer residence of the pope is located. During the one-hour train travel you enjoy the Roman city- and countryside as well as the special atmosphere in the historic passenger coach.

Castel Gandolfo is famous for hosting the summer and vacation residence of the leader of the Catholic Church. Since centuries the pope travels to the little village to retreat himself and to refresh his energy. Although the residence is located within the city, it has extraterritorial status and is not under the jurisdiction of Italy.

Once you arrive at the Apostolic Palace, you’ll be provided with an audio guide. You’ll have the privilege to explore the Pope’s summer residence and listen to the exciting explanations about its history and use. While walking through the building, you can admire the historic architecture, original ceiling decorations and other pieces of art. Afterwards you can relax in the bright gardens of the villa or visit the enclosed village Castel Gandolfo, before returning to the Rome by train.
