Private Tour Of Castel Sant’angelo


With skip the line entrance tickets and your expert guide, begin in 138 AD when the Castel was originally built as a funeral monument for Emperor Hadrian. Here you can still explore the mausoleum dedicated to him. Explore the Treasury room deep inside the castle, where it is said his ashes were originally placed before the 5th century sacking of Rome. As you make your way through the castle, visit the frescoed Papal apartments. Hear about the lives of the pope's and cardinals who resided here - such as the Borgia, and others who hid away when crisis struck. Stand in a torture chambre in the courtyard where numerous executions were held, and see the famous Passeto Secreto - the 'secret passageway' that connects the castle directly with the Vatican which inspired Dan Brown's book Angels and Demons. Finally, enjoy stunning views of the city from the top of the monument where Archangel Michael stands armed with a sword, guarding the city.

Reviews for Private Tour Of Castel Sant’angelo
Don't walk Past, Delve in, Explore!
Seeped in history, Castel Sant'Angelo is an important historical gem! Thank you, Lisa, for the fantastic tour. My daughter Hannah and I really enjoyed the morning. There is a lot of walking on this tour, so wear comfortable shoes. The views from the top are amazing, and the history is so rich, full of layers. This Mausoleum of Hadrian is a monument an archeological site and a museum all in one.

Great place to include on your list of must do in Rome. Our tour guide was very accommodating and knowledgeable. We really enjoyed Castel Sant’Angelo. The varied history of this place was so interesting. The views from up top were really incredible. Only problem was there was massive rain on our tour 🌧️😩. However, still highly recommend this tour despite the rain!
Family visit to Castel Sant’Angelo with Michela

Michela was a fabulous guide. She was obviously very knowledgeable, really passionate and super friendly. She was great with my 12 year old daughter and kept us all very engaged for the entire tour. We all learnt a lot with Michela and I would recommend this tour.
Private tour of an iconic site with an amazing guide

Marco was amazing. He took the time right away to get to know us and tailor the tour to our interests. He was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly, covering the site from Roman times to modern day including Vatican gossip. It was an experience I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
