The Pope's Secret Garden
Perched dramatically above Lake Albano, the papal summer residence at Castel Gandolfo is an enchanting trove that hides three precious gems inside: a private chapel, the bedroom of the Pope and a marvelous garden. A special place for its climate and landscape, between hedges of hawthorn and blossoming rose bushes. Lose yourself in a maze of flowers, fountains, aqueducts, white statues, superb frescoes, long corridors, and enormous magnolias. No other palace in the world can give so much peace and wonder.
