  • Description

    Pope John XXIII arrived at Castelgandolfo July 19 for his first summer vacation in the Alban Hill Papal Palace.

    Thousands of Romans braved the sweltering heat to throng the ancient and Modern Appian Ways and cheer the Pontiff as his four-car cartage drove from the Vatican.

    Later, in answer to cheers from several thousand residents and tourists packing the town's square, the Pope appeared on the balcony overlooking the square and raised his arms in blessing.

    His Holiness will return to the Vatican briefly July 21 for an audience with Prime minister Nobusuke Kishi of Japan.
