Pope's Farm Tours
A few kilometers from Rome, in the Castelli Romani area, is the quaint village of Castel Gandolfo on Lake Albano, the seat of the summer residence of the Popes since the seventeenth century. Before the Popes, the emperor Domitian built a summer villa there in the 1st century AD, the ruins of which are located within the estate of the Pontifical Villas. If you are on vacation in the capital of Italy, take a break from the frenetic flow of the city for a secluded retreat among the picturesque Roman hills. Walks Inside Rome organizes for you a series of exclusive private or small group Pope’s farm tours.
Castel Gandolfo – The good retreat of the Popes
From 21 October 2016 what was for a long time the summer residence of the Popes in Castel Gandolfo has become a museum open to the public along with the gardens and the rest of the palace. The interior of the Pope’s residence is sumptuous and perfectly maintained:
- the private apartments
- the bedroom
- the private chapel, which houses an image of the Madonna del Santuario di Częstochowa
- the library
- the meeting room
- the living rooms
Here, everything about Pope Bergoglio and his predecessors are available to visitors and tourists from all over the world.
Going from Rome to Castel Gandolfo is an opportunity for an excursion that had never occurred before. Its beauty has been certified by the recognition as one of the most beautiful villages in Italy.
The papal estate hosts 55 hectares with the famous Barberini gardens, including ruins, a Roman amphitheater, an organic farm and panoramic views of the town of the same name. A real privilege to be able to access many beauties scattered in an extra-territorial complex owned by the Vatican City.
It was Pope Francis who no longer wanted to use this estate as a summer residence and allowed it to open to the public to display the papacy’s treasures. Everything here invites you to experience a special day discovering this place that has long remained secret, offering the opportunity to visit the site at your own pace.
Come and discover this idyllic retreat in the Roman countryside, benefiting from an exquisite spot overlooking the fantastically sapphire volcanic lake. To make sure you can enjoy this excursion, I recommend that you rely on an experienced travel agency.
