General Information About Rome Countryside
Discover the amazing Rome countryside! The tour includes a visit to Pope’s Summer Residence and the Catacombs.
We will stop at Castel Gandolfo, a small town located on the Alban Hills and counting about 8800 inhabitants. With its scenic view on Lake Albano it can easily be considered one of the most beautiful towns of Italy. This is also where we will find the Apostolic Palace of Castel Gandolfo – the Pope’s summer residence. It is interesting to note that the palace, being the property of the Holy See, is not under Italian jurisdiction.
After lunch we will stop by the mausoleum of a famous Roman noblewoman Cecilia Metella, as we head to the Catacombs where the Christians, persecuted by the Romans, were hiding in order to practice their religion.
We will then arrive to Rome where you can visit the Coliseum and the Venice Square. If you have already seen Rome and wish to discover less known sights we can offer a different itinerary!
