Castel Gandolfo Distance from Town - City Center?

Considering visiting Castel Gandolfo on a short day trip from Rome in October. Is the train station far from the center of town? Is the town pretty easy to navigate and have some good local restaurants?

Are tours available of the Pope's summer home?

Thanks!

The train station is at the bottom of a very steep hil - it is walkable if you are fit. October will be cool so it is not such a problem. We are a mature fit couple who stayed in Castel Gandolfo in September. Walking down the hill we were met with a group of Germans who could not find their way up the hill - no directions and no-one at the station to ask. Not many restaurants and most will be closing when the Pope moves back on October 3rd.
