Full description
Explore one of the eternal city's most emblematic attractions. Leave your guidebook at home and step into the history of the Mausoleum of Hadrian, usually known as Castel Sant'Angelo. Don’t miss the chance to visit the Tomb of the Roman emperor Hadrian (also known as Hadrian's Mole). You'll learn about the ancient legend of Archangel Michael appearing atop the mausoleum, sheathing his sword and signalling the end of the plague of 590, thus lending the castle its present name. Feast your eyes on the magnificent frescoes, Papal apartments, and corridors of the castle. You'll also be able to admire beautiful sculptures of angels by Bernini, Raggi and Morelli.

The local partners were very polite and helpful in understanding our needs. The guide, Andreada, despite being the first time running an Italian language tour was very good and provided relevant historical details, being prepared and very kind. Absolutely recommended!
