Full description
Take part in a small group tour led by a professional guide to admire some areas of the Castel Sant'Angelo that aren’t normally available, such as the Olearie, the historical prisons, and the theater of Clemente VII. 

With your skip-the-line entry ticket, enjoy a fast entrance and start the 2-hour guided tour of the famous castle erected by the Roman emperor Hadrian as his tomb. Throughout the years, the historical building has served as a private residence to numerous popes, as a treasury of the state, a prison, and as a place of public executions. 

In just 2 hours, discover the rich history behind the castle and marvel at its magnificent sculptures and paintings. Your guide will show you the burial place of the late emperor, the pope’s apartment, and the treasury room.
