Tour itinerary

Leaving Rome, this tour takes you by coach passed 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 the characteristic Colli Albani hills, many of which are of volcanic origin and are particularly pretty.

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 at Castelgandolfo. At the end of the blessing, you will be returned to Rome by coach.
