We have been to Rome on many occasions and this trip we wanted to do something different. We enjoyed the Barberini Garden and the Pope’s Summer Residence of Castel Gandolfo (summer home of the Popes for hundreds of years). There were no crowds and we enjoyed all of the beautiful details as we discovered the inside of Castel Gandolfo. There was so much history to soak up. Our audio guides were easy to follow and the arrangements were all well organized. If you've done all of the must see's in Rome and interested in something new, we suggest you try this out for a relaxing stroll through history.

This tour surpassed our expectations.The Barberini Gardens are so beautiful and a joy to witness up close. I hadn't expected the train ride to Castel Gandolfobe to be a bonus but the day of my travel it was so pleasant with the wonderful views along the way. Thank you for such a great experience.
