One of Rome's most stunning views is from Castel Sant'Angelo, which soars over the Tiber River. Skip the queues and go inside to look at the objects that tell the story of the building's multiple makeovers. The castle, built first as a massive mausoleum, then as a fortification throughout the medieval eras, and last as a defensive post against barbarian invasions, will provide you with new insights into Roman history.

The Castel Sant'Angelo, also known as Hadrian's Tomb, is a stronghold on the right bank of the Tiber, not far from the Vatican City. In AD 139, this magnificent palace was erected as a tomb for the Roman Emperor Hadrian and his family. Castel Sant'Angelo is one of Rome's most important sites, with over a million tourists yearly. The core building, surrounded by enormous walls, has an unusual circular form and stands 48 meters above the ground. The site has seen many modifications and structural renovations, from a massive burial site to the fortress, from horrible jail to an exquisite private mansion, and from military headquarters to a world-famous museum.

This remarkable castle, just a short walk from the Vatican, lacks the dismal and grim appearance of Medieval fortifications. Still, as we will discover, its towering walls, rooms covered with murals, and grids of corridors conceal more than one mystery. A visit to this site is not just a trip back in time but also an exhilarating journey across time, from 2000 years ago to the present.

The Medieval ambiance will take your breath away as you step inside! A trained guide will save you from getting lost in this unknown location and continuously take you through all levels while entertaining you with tremendous stories. At the end of your journey, you are given a magnificent gift: a breathtaking panoramic view of Rome's old center and the Ponte Sant'Angelo from the terrace.
