Discover Sant’ Angelo castle at your own pace, with a fascinating self-guided audio tour on your smartphone.
Enter the castle and explore its gems with an award-winning storytelling concept. Once you’ve entered the historic castle, you’ll head toward a large open space, once home to the executions courtyard. There, you’ll listen to the stories of famous heretics tortured by the Roman Inquisition. Getting deeper into the castle, you’ll learn about its early history as a Mausoleum for Emperors. You’ll climb up the 2nd-century brick-walled ramp leading to the room where the cinerary urns of Hadrian and his family were once placed. During your visit, you’ll also admire in awe the luxurious Sala Paolina, the beauty of Perino Del Vaga’s decorative complex and the stunning Room of Cupid and Psyche.
Obviously, one of the highlights of your tour will be the visit to the castle’s terrace! From there you’ll take glimpses of the famous Passetto di Borgo, the once-secret passageway of the Popes! The iconic statue of the Angel standing imposingly on the rooftop will also greet you before leaving the dreamy castle. Having enjoyed a mesmerizing panorama of the Eternal city, you’ll head to Ponte Sant’ Angelo to end your tour with the stories and legends of the prettiest bridge that spans the river Tiber!
This is an unmissable opportunity to discover the stories of a monument tied to the history of Rome!
