Castel Gandolfo, Lazio


Vincent Palacino Jr, New York
“During our recent trip [April 2014] to Italy for the canonization of Popes John XXIII and John Paul II, we took a side trip to Castel Gandolfo, the summer retreat of Popes. The retreat had been closed to the public until this year when Pope Francis opened the Papal Gardens to the public. So we took advantage of the opportunity and headed south from Rome to visit the gardens. This is a photo of the beautifully sculptured gardens that the public can now enjoy.”
