Visit with us one of the most famous Roman landmarks! Castel Sant’Angelo has a fascinating history and offers one of the finest views of Rome from a rooftop terrace. It would be a pity not to cross the scenic Ponte degli Angeli to visit one of the oldest and most fascinating Roman monuments!
The beautiful Castel Sant’Angelo was built in the 2nd century as a mausoleum by order of the emperor Hadrian. It was transformed into a fortress during the Middle Ages to defend the Pope. The Papal state also used Sant’Angelo as a prison; Giordano Bruno, for example, was imprisoned there for six years.
With an imposing interior and also a courtyard, Castel Sant’Angelo is dominated by architecture and artefacts from imperial Rome, weapons and architecture from medieval Rome, and masterpieces from the Renaissance.
Led by a private professional guide, this tour is perfect to discover the ancient history of Rome. You can see with your own eyes the progression of its architecture that reflects the transformation of Rome itself over the last 1,900 years. While most museums have a unified theme, Castel Sant’Angelo offers one of the most varied collections of art, artefacts, and architecture in Rome.
