So the new Pope Francis has been elected, lets go and look at the Papal Apartment in the Apostolic Palace in the Vatican City in Rome. Pope’s have been living in the apartment since the 17th century.
There are 10 rooms in the 3rd floor Papal apartment which includes a vestibule, a studio office, the Pope’s private study, the Pope’s bedroom, a medical suite, a private dining room, a small living room, the private library, the Pope’s chapel, and a kitchen.
The new Pope will be living in these apartments from September to July when he heads to his summer residence at Castle Gandolfo.
Each Pope typically renovates the living quarters to their own style.
