Project Description

Visit to Castel Gandolfo

Just outside the city of Rome, the thirteen towns of the Castelli Romani are unique holiday resorts dating back to the times of the Roman Empire. These towns were mainly founded by popes and patrician families and became summer residences for the Roman élites.

A personalized and completely accessible itinerary will lead you through a path to discover historical places, immersed in nature and traditional Roman cuisine.

You will leave in the morning from your hotel in our private and accessible, large and comfortable van equipped with an electric hydraulic platform that facilitates the ascent and descent for each stage of the tour.

You will arrive in the heart of Castel Gandolfo where you will meet your bilingual guide who will help you discover the small town overlooking Lake Albano.

The site hosts the Apostolic Palace of Castel Gandolfo and the Barberini Gardens, which constitute the Pope’s summer residence, open to the public since 2016.

The summer residence of the Popes made Castel Gandolfo famous all over the world over history. By visiting its beautiful gardens, it is also possible to observe the remains of the Villa of Domitian and the Vatican Farm. In the square in front of the Papal Palace, lie a majestic fountain and the church of San Tommaso di Villanova, both designed by Bernini and part of this guided tour.

The village, dotted with shops and excellent restaurants, is also characterized by various belvederes, over Lake Albano and over the surrounding woods. One of the most evocative and characteristic routes of the day will take you to the fully accessible restaurant right in time for lunch. Here, you will taste a wide range of local products such as porchetta, salami and donuts baked in a wood oven. In the afternoon, our private van will take you back to your hotel in Rome.
