My daughter is visiting Italy for the first time and has only two weeks to cram in Florence and Rome, so we've pretty well been going full tilt 24/7! I thought it might be nice to have a "free" day and just relax and recoup....More
We couldn't understand why this place wasn't packed with tourists. It's gorgeous. And so close to Rome. We drove and there was plenty of parking near all the beaches. There is a public beach, but the private ones are obviously nicer. do not miss going...More
Beautiful city and lake! We enjoyed strolling the piazza, seeing the observatory and summer residence of the pope. Finished with a walk to the lakefront. It was easy to reach this beautiful city from Rome by train.
Lake Albono is located in Castel Gandolfo village. It is average 45 mins away from Rome and easy to travel. It is better to go up the village first walk around and take good photos. After discovering this area you can go by the lake...More
The place is beautiful and relaxing away from the Crowd and noisy Rome.
You can get ur ticket from termini station on the same day.
I do recommend to climb first to Castel gondolfo then go down to the beach
We took a short trip outside Rome to the town of Castel Gandolfo. It's a beautiful place overlooking the picturesque Lake Albano. The views of the lake from the twon are spectacular. The town also has the Pope's summer palace (although the current Pope does...More

Moira B (from Malta), Tx for your note. It's years since I took the train from Termini Gastel Gandolfo; in recent years I've been to Lago Albano by car. You need to walk around the lake - if you have the time. For me the best views are directly opposite the town - looking back towards the town. You could hop a taxi from outside the station - if you have the time/money/inclination - and request a drop off at the Villa Giulia sul Lago on Via Spiaggia del Lago. Then take the trail through the trees around the perimeter of the lake. This is where you get those views. The trail meets up with the Via dei Pescatori (through a wire fence/car park); continue until you meet the Via dell'Emissario on your left. Turn here, climb the road and it will take you back to the station. This is a popular walk/jog/bikkie route; you'll see lots of people. It's shady and OK on a hot day in the shade under the trees. Buon viaggio. Peter Steele 29Dec18
