Description

Discover Rome's legendary sites during your guided 3-hour tour: from Castel Sant'Angelo to the Vatican, passing by Ponte Sant'Angelo and the district of Borgo Pio!

Your guide will first of all show you Ponte Sant'Angelo and the story behind the ten angel statues sculpted by Bernini that still decorate the bridge.

You will then visit the Castel Sant'Angelo without having to queue (cost of admission not included). There, you will learn about the turbulent history of the site, which Emperor Hadrian ordered to be constructed in 125BCE and which was used by various popes as a fortress.

You will see frescos, the papal apartments and the corridors along which prisoners were held, and will have the chance to admire the superb views of Rome.

Your guide will then take you to the Vatican and tell you all about the links between the two sites. You will also pass through the district of Borgo Pio, which was formerly ruled by the Vatican.

Your tour will end at Saint Peter's Square after you have taken in its history and architectural details.
