Full description
As part of a small group led by a professional local guide, skip the lines at the Castel Sant'Angelo to set off on a 2-hour tour. Start the adventure of the famous castle that was erected by Emperor Hadrian to be his tomb. The building has also been used by popes as their private residence, the state treasury, a prison, and as a location for public executions throughout its history.

In just 2 hours you’ll have the chance to discover the rich history of the castle and its magnificent architecture and paintings. You’ll be introduced to the emperor's burial place, the papal apartment, and treasury room.

Admire the beautiful angel sculptures along the Ponte Sant'Angelo bridge, also known as the Bridge of Angels. Finish off the incredible experience with a panoramic view from the castle's terrace and take stunning photos of the city.
