Travelers anxiously awaiting to visit Pope Francis’ summer residence at Castel Gandolfo this summer now have something more exciting to look forward to.
Visitors will be able to take a perfect day trip from Rome and enjoy a meal that is literally fit for the Pope himself – straight from his private farm.
Picture this: a buffet lunch overlooking Lake Albano that is filled with organic products from the Pope’s farm such as cheeses, meats, bruschetta, tomatoes, olive oil, salad and more. It’s the ultimate culinary experience and a must-do for travelers (especially foodies) visiting Rome.
