Rome's Castle and Mysteries Private Tour
Join us on a private experience deep inside Rome's infamous "Castel Sant'Angelo" originally built as a tomb and not a castle by the great emperor Hadrian, this awe-inspiring cylindrical mausoleum held the ashes of Hadrian and the Roman emperors that followed in his footsteps until becoming a fortress in AD 401. In the 14th century, it became a Papal residence with a fortified corridor between the castle and St. Peter’s Basilica. Today, it’s home to the Castel Sant'Angelo National Museum and its collection of art, archaeological finds, and weaponry. Another highlight is the large terrace, where Puccini's heroine jumped to her death in his opera Tosca, and it has a truly fantastic view over the Eternal City centre of Rome. Follow your guide and let the mysteries and secrets of the great Roman castle be revealed as you traverse deep within its walls.
