What to Expect
Catch the express train from St Peter's in the Vatican City to Castel Gandolfo in the Alban Hills, and explore the summer residence of the popes at your own pace. The beautiful Apostolic Palace of Castel Gandolfo is located approximately 15 miles southeast of Rome.

Relax on the 1-hour journey, and enjoy views of the beautiful countryside along the way. Occupying a high position overlooking Lake Albano, Castel Gandolfo has been the official summer residence for the papacy since the 17th-century.

Although situated within the enclave of Castel Gandolfo, the Apostolic Palace is afforded extraterritorial status as one of the properties of the Holy See and is not under the jurisdiction of Castel Gandolfo or Italy. Tour the Apostolic Palace with an audio guide and enjoy the rest of the day at your leisure, before catching the afternoon train back to Rome.
