Castel Sant’Angelo (Castle of the Holy Angel) is one of the most iconic monuments of Rome. Originally built as the Mausoleum of Hadrian, one of the 5 most respected Emperors of Ancient Rome, almost 2,000 years ago, this fortress was used by the Popes, and turned into a prison as well, before becoming the monument it is today.
Meet your private, fully-licensed guide and follow them into this fascinating fortress. Let them take you to the Ponte Sant’Angelo (the Sant’Angelo Bridge) as well as the small inner courtyard where executions were once held. You will also hear about the Passetto di Borgo, a small elevated passageway linking the Castel to the Vatican, which played a key role in Dan Brown’s Angels & Demons (closed to the public).
And when you get to the top of the fortress, you will enjoy a beautiful panoramic view of Rome. Designed for families traveling with teenagers, this live escape game will keep everyone engaged and entertained while learning about the popes, and Castel Sant’Angelo through the ages.
