Rome to Lago Albano - 50K History Tour

Today I took advantage of good weather and the possibility of a ride home from Lago Albano to piece together a stunning and historical 50K run from Central Rome to Castel Gandolfo (The Pope's summer residence) overlooking Lago Albano. My run included spectacular sights, stretches of trail, and finally meeting fellow runners who were running around the lake for a post run lunch outside on the shore of the lake. Enjoy the historical tour della storia...
