Know More about this tour
Recently opened to the public by Pope Francis, the Papal Palace also known as the Apostolic Palace was designed by Carlo Maderno - the same architect as St. Peters Basilicas facade. Previously off-limits, you can now discover the rare history and treasures contained in this extravagant yet intimate interior, including the works of Bernini.
You arrive to the top of this secluded, charming town, where your exclusive Apostolic Palace sightseeing audio guided tour begins. This audioguided tour will last about an hour.
From the Apostolic Palace you will head towards Popes private and luxurious Barberini Gardens where you will have the chance to explore the gardens by an ecological golf car for about one hour, using your audio guide.
After your visit to the Popes gardens, you will have about an hour lunch break to taste some delicious food chosen for you directly from Popes Residence fresh products.
