Papal Vacation Begins

Pope Benedict XVI has departed from the Vatican for a fortnight’s holiday at Les Combes d'Introd which is located in the Valle d'Aosta at Italy's extreme northwest corner. Les Combes was the Pope’s choice for his first summer holiday following his election in April 2005.

The Pope is scheduled to remain at Les Combes d'Introd until 29th July at which point he will repair to the papal summer villa at Castel Gandolfo.
