As well as the "big story", your guide will take you on a tour of the organisation of the "Pope's hotel" and the catering services.
What types of dishes were favoured? Where did the raw materials come from? How were attempts to poison the Pope prevented?
Do you know why the Pope worked under the worried eye of a stag painted on the walls of his study? Why does the lion occupy a special place in the Palace's sculptural decoration?
What is the significance of the monkey looking at itself in a mirror as it leaves the Grande Chapelle? Can't you guess? Your guide knows and will share it with you!
