Castel Gandolfo Gardens: Pontifical Villas Tour with Lunch

Visit Castel Gandolfo to see the papal palace complex that served over 30 popes. Explore the gardens on an open bus, enter the papal residence, and savor a tasty lunch prepared by the pope's chefs.

Once arriving at Castel Gandolfo, walk to the papal residence to receive an official audio guide. Then, enjoy a ride on the Vatican open bus for an hour around the Barberini Gardens. While you enjoy the fresh air and summer breeze, the staff of the papal residence will prepare your lunch.

Visit the papal apartment for 500 years of history. Walk from the bedroom to the private chapel, from the library to the studio. Look at the balcony from where the popes pronounced the Angelus every Sunday in summer.
