We are excited to find tickets for the new Papal Garden tour at Castel Gandolfo. Now we are trying to figure out how to get there for a 08:30 tour. A train is scheduled to arrive at 08:06 from Termini, will it give us enough time to get to the entrance? only says to 'follow the sign for town center, 15 minutes on foot'. Is it really that easy? I am nervous that I won't be able to find it. Please help. Thank you.

Is there an easier way to get there. We are travelling from rome.
I went to castel gandolfo in early 2008 and there was a dispute between the operators of the beaches (restaurants, seat sellers etc) and the local council, I think over ongoing rent issues.
Does anyone know if this dispute has now been resolved and if the businesses have re-opened?
