You`ll take part of a Small Group in an Express Tour of the Castle`s terrace. Get inside through a skip-the-line ticket and be accompanied by our staff to its magnificent Terrace and start a 1-hour tour. Its terrace has one of the best views around the Eternal City of Rome and the highest point of the Castle. Its name was originated from the colossal statue of Archangelo Michele, to recall the vision of Pope Gregory Magno about the pestilence in 590 in Rome. The view opens 360 degrees towards the City centre, from the grounds of the Castle and beyond the Tiber river. In front of the Castle , you can admire the Sant`Angelo bridge, one of the most scenographic masterpiece of the Roman Baroque Art designed by Bernini, representing ten Angel Statues that symbolizes love and passion. The Castle is sorrounded of many public buildings such as the giant mole of Palazzo di Giustizia, the Villa Borghese, the Quirinale, the Pantheon, the Campidoglio, the Aventino Hill, the Gianicolo and looking towards the Basilica of St. Peter where you can apppreciate the so called passetto di Borgo, a passage way that connects Castel Sant`Angelo with the Vatican buildings. After this fantastic experience you are free to visit the remaining levels of the Castle on your own pace, just to admire other ruins of the Castle founded by the Emperor Hadrian built to be his monumental tomb. Throughout the years , the building was also used by the Popes as their private residence, a treasure of the State, a prison and a place of public executions. After the visit of the Castle, you can walk on your own to see the wonderful scupltures of the Angels located along the Sant`Angelo bridge, also known as Ponte degli Angeli.
