This unique half-day tour from Rome will take you to the lovely town of Castel Gandolfo where you will visit the Papal Palace and its stunning landscaped gardens.

Castel Gandolfo, built on the site of the legendary ancient settlement of Alba Longa, is one of Italy’s most picturesque towns, and has been home to the Papal summer retreat since 1596. Situated in the Regional Park of the Castelli Romani, it enjoys splendid views over the beautiful Lake Albano, which you will be able to admire from the grounds of the Apostolic Palace.

Pope Francis only opened up this previously secretive property of the Holy See in 2016. On this tour, you will be able to explore the up-to-now hidden gems of this glorious private residence with an audio-guide in the language of your choice. Then you will have the opportunity to see the gorgeously manicured Barberini Gardens and the impressive ruins of Emperor Domitian’s villa, before enjoying a lunch prepared with fresh produce from the palace farm!

If you have not already done so, you will have the chance to add a tour of the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel and St Peter’s Basilica with our fantastic guide onto your experience, in which case, upon your return to Rome, you will be dropped off right outside the Vatican.

One of the best day trips from Rome, the enchanting town of Tivoli is just a quick bus ride away.

Our knowledgeable guide introduces you to the hidden gems and alluring history of Hadrian’s Villa and Villa d’Este.

Tour the archaeological remains of past temples, sculptures and pools. Once the vacation spot of Emperor Hadrian and now the home to many beautifully preserved artifacts and ruins. It’s no wonder that this destination was named a UNESCO world heritage site status.

After a quiet and leisurely break for lunch it is time for the second stop on this Tivoli tour – the elegant, Renaissance palace of Villa d’Este. Another UNESCO world heritage site.

Admire the stunning grounds filled with extravagant gardens and fountains. See Bernini’s illustrious Neptune’s fountain up close and personal and learn about the history behind this and each of these elaborate and unique springs.

Tivoli, Hadrian’s Villa and Villa d’Este is the most charming day trip from Rome.
