The Pontifical Villas, commissioned by Pope Urban VIII in the 17th century as a papal country residence, are located 25 km south of Rome in the fairy-tale town of Castel Gandolfo. The property was first opened to the public in 2014 and spans 55 hectares, including the palace and the massive gardens built into the 2,000 year old ruins of Emperor Domitian's residence.

It was amazing, the tour official know what the best time to see Papal Palace and Vatican Gardens, but you must sacrifice the time to see and enjoying inside Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel....

This is great tour, could use more time in the museum, but it is condensed. Extremely worth it.
