Wonderful way to spend the day if you’ve already seen most of the main historical destinations in the city center. The tour began a little early (8:00 am) with a bus ride to the small town of Castel Gandolfo where the Pope’s summer residence is. We rode first by bus, then by a mini eco-train around the sites in this beautiful mountaintop town. After visiting the Pope’s private gardens and the Papal Palace, we were given some time to eat lunch and walk about town a little. This incredibly adorable town sits at the top of the mountain, overlooking the lake so on a clear day (which we luckily had) the views were breathtaking. Definitely enjoyed the morning at Castel Gandolfo more than the afternoon at the Vatican – but a visit there is a must when in Rome. If it were a longer trip, we would’ve liked to spend more time in Castel Gandolfo and around the Castelli Romani. Such a nice change of pace from the city center and so beautiful!
Excellent tours,so beautiful residents garden for the pope!! My driver was very good.. in the afternoon did a tour of Vatican museum pier was a great tour guide very knowledgeable I learn alot from him
Very helpful guides, they take care of you. My wife forgot her purse in a cafe in Gandolfo, one of the guides rode up to the cafe, picked it up, and returned it to us before the trip. Lifesaver.!
transport from anagnina (metro station) to gandolfo was perfectly organised, the guides are the best! you definitely won‘t regret it, looking forward to visit them again
Really good. I've been in Rome many times but never visit Rome's vineyards. It was a very pleasant surprise. Veey well organized. Recommended.
