What's not included

Transportation to Castel Gandolfo
  • Take an escorted look around Castel Gandolfo's beautiful Papal Gardens, which were only opened to the public by Pope Francis in 2014
  • Soak up the unique atmosphere of the Pope's summer residence and enjoy the same peace and quiet that some 30 popes have enjoyed
  • Go inside the Apostolic Palace, a grand retreat where popes have come to escape the hustle and bustle of the Vatican since the 17th century

These tickets for the Papal Gardens at Castel Gandolfo get you a rare glimpse inside the Pope's impeccable gardens – the Gardens of Villa Barberini – plus venture inside the grand Apostolic Palace.

Overlooking the emerald green waters of Lake Albano, this stunning complex is a great escape from the hustle and bustle of Rome. There's a reason why Italian's plan their dream weddings here – it's mesmerizing.

Just 40 minutes by train from Rome, Pope Francis opened a huge portion of the site to the public in 2014. Spend some time admiring lush tree-lined gardens and manicured shrubbery, and make sure to visit the Belvedere and Magnolia gardens.

This divine property has provided peace and quiet for more than 30 popes since it was built in the early 17th century. You'll be overcome with Papal intrigue and fascinated further inside the Apostolic Palace.

  • Show your smartphone ticket at the entrance of the Papal Palace
  • Please note that a staff member will escort you during your visit due to security reasons (this is not just anybody's palace, but the Pope's summer residence, after all). Respect their instructions, and take in beautiful views while strolling through the tranquil gardens
