Itinerary Itinerary

Throughout the duration of this tour of Castel Sant'Angelo, you will be accompanied by our English-speaking guide who will help you discover the mysteries and myths that surround this fascinating place. It is the fortress par excellence, a construction of vital importance in the events that have shaped the history of Rome. Our tour will end on the charming terrace of the castle, from where you will be able to contemplate one of the most beautiful panoramic views of the city.

The history of Castel Sant'Angelo is incredibly rich since it has played a fundamental role in many historical events over the centuries. Initially built as a funeral mausoleum for Emperor Hadrian, it was later used as a defensive fortress for the Papacy, the Mint and the Secret Archives at the beginning of the 15th century, as military barracks and prison after the unification of Italy, as the main site of the 1911 World Fair and finally as the National Museum.

This is an exclusive tour to discover this architectural jewel. You will admire, always relaxed and avoiding crowds, this castle and its fascinating contrasts: austere rooms, sentries, and cells mixed with halls full of luxury and refined pictorial allusions. A journey through the history of this fortress is a journey through the history of Rome and its art, preserved in this very important Museum of Rome.
