Description

Discover the Castel Sant’Angelo bridge, the Di Borgo passage and Saint Pierre square accompanied by a professional tour guide. Meet your guide near to the château in order to admire the building’s cylindrical form.

Built under the orders of Emperor Hadrien, the impressive building became the mausoleum for the emperor and his family. The Castel Sant’Angelo was at one time the tallest building in Rome. Before it became a museum, throughout the centuries it was used as a military fortress as well as a château by the Roman popes.

Your guide will tell you a number of stories about the history of the Castel Sant’Angelo, such as the one about the passage which links the Castel to Saint Peter’s basilica…
