About the Castelgandolfo Tour

With this package you will see the best of Castelgandolfo with a guided tour of this picturesque town and Papal blessing at the Pope's summer residence. During the summer months, this excursion permits us to leave the Capital and spend some time with the Pope at his summer residence.

Leaving Rome, we pass by the enormous ruins of the Baths of Caracalla before taking the Ancient Appian Way and passing the Chapel of "Domine Quo Vadis?". The tour will then proceed to the south of Rome, through characteristic hills, many of which are of volcanic origin and are known as ‘Colli Albani'. The Pope's summer residence is very near the volcanic lake of Albano and the Papal Blessing will take place in the square facing the Papal palace of Castelgandolfo. At the end of the blessing you will be returned to Rome.

Please note that, as the Pope only stays at Castelgandolfo in the summer, the availability of a Papal Blessing is seasonal.
