Really enjoyed the walk! Totally worth it.

Take a break from the bustle of Rome and step into a treasure trove of art and history in the quaint village of Castel Gandolfo. On this tour, you will be led by a member of the Vatican staff who will walk you through the gardens or the "green heart" of the Pontifical Villas. Built on a hilltop above Lake Albano, Castel Gandolfo served for centuries as a summer residence and vacation retreat for the popes looking to escape Rome's sweltering heat. Spend an hour strolling through well-maintained orchards, vineyards, and over 1000 olive trees around the farm.
