    What to expect

    The Pontifical Villas of Castel Gandolfo are increasingly accessible to visitors. Many of the exclusive places in the Papal Apartment will be revealed to visitors: from the bedchamber to the private chapel, from the library to the study, along with a rich exhibition itinerary conceived, arranged and managed by the Vatican Museums. The entire papal residence enjoys all the privileges of extraterritoriality.

    Things to look out for

    When you visit the pontifical estates or Villa Pontificia for the first time, you do not expect to come across the ruins of what is perhaps the most famous villa of ancient Rome, the Albanum Domitiani, the magnificent summer residence of the Emperor Domitian (81-96 AD), which once covered roughly 14 kilometers along the Appian Way towards Lake Albano.
