What to expect

Enjoy the Castel Sant’Angelo and Bernini's marble angels guided tour with an expert local guide, see the Baroque angels that adorn the Pons Aelius and learn about the history of Rome!

Castel Sant’Angelo was built under the Emperor Hadrian as a mausoleum, a huge tomb for himself and his family. In the second half of the XIV century, Pope Bonifacio IX made it a fortress in order to defend Rome from attacks.

The tour will start at the main entrance, right in front of Ponte Sant'Angelo, the wonderful bridge adorned with ten huge marble angels designed by Bernini.
Moreover, you will get inside the mausoleum through the spiral ramp that was once used by horses and you will reach the upper part to have a glance of the gardens, the prisons and the silos. Through the "Loggia" of Pope Paolo III and Pope Giulio II, you will get inside the ex-apartments, where the Popes used to rest, and the Treasure Room, with its wardrobes and coffers; then you will end on the terrace with the San Michele Arcangelo statue, where you will enjoy a beautiful sight of Rome.
