Overview
Discover the link between the Vatican and Rome, and visit one of the main symbols of the Eternal City! From the famous bridge flanked by beautiful statues of angels, known as Ponte Sant'Angelo, you will see the magnificent Castel Sant'Angelo ... Discover its fascinating history: once known as Hadrian's Mausoleum, by the great Roman emperor who built it as a majestic tomb for himself and his family, it later became the castle that can be seen today: a fortress used by the Popes to escape the sieges, to preserve the treasures of the Church and to imprison enemies. Skip the queue and don't waste time: visit the decorated rooms of the papal apartments and stroll through the dark corridors of the prison, listening to the stories of the prisoners from our expert and passionate guide! Finally, at the foot of the statue of St. Michael the Archangel, on the splendid terrace at the top of the castle, enjoy a breathtaking view, from the Victorian "wedding cake" to the great St. Peter's Basilica!
