Pope bids Alps farewell

Benedict at Castelgandolfo for six weeks, then German trip

(ANSA) - Les Combes di Introd, July 28 - Pope Benedict XVI returned to a boiling Rome on Friday after a break in the refreshing air of the Italian Alps .

However, the pontiff will not have to endure the capital's stifling heat for too long - he's off again to his summer residence at the hilltown of Castelgandolfo outside Rome on Friday afternoon .

After the giddy heights of the Alps, the town is sure to seem a mere bump above the surrounding plain - but it does offer a cool lakeside papal residence.
