Visit the fairytale villa outside Rome, where the Popes escape from the bustle of the Vatican, and relax in the Papal Gardens.
Visit the wonderfully situated papal estate in Castel Gandolfo
Stroll through the idyllic papal gardens
Listen to your audio guide's explanations and let yourself be driven around the property
Visit the papal estate that has served as a refuge for more than 30 popes since its construction in the 17th century. Skip the queues and quickly enter the papal gardens where you can enjoy the magnificent view of the nearby lake.
An audio guide will guide you through Castel Gandolfo, one of Italy's most beautiful cities, which covers 55 hectares and is therefore larger than the Vatican itself. While you are being driven over the plant, you will find out all kinds of details about the life of the Popes. Find out which pontiff installed a swimming pool and which pope disappeared in Castel Gandolfo for months after his resignation.
Only recently, another part of the premises was opened to the public, so that you can admire the lush, tree-lined gardens and see the remains of Emperor Domitian's residence.
