Castel Gandolfo is famous the world over as the Pope's summer residence, but it is also a very pleasant village with something of a seaside feel due to its location by the shores of Lake Albano. It is a popular getaway with people from the capital, who, on summer days, come here to cycle or tuck into porchetta on the lungolago. To the right of the church, San Tommaso, a path leads to a terrace commanding a sweeping view over Lake Albano.
