Castel Sant’Angelo, or Hadrian’s Mausoleum, is undoubtedly one of Rome’s most impressive and interesting monuments. The visit to the castle is undoubtedly a unique experience thanks to the countless panoramic views, among the most evocative of Rome, which you can enjoy from the terraces, windows, and balconies. The guided tour can carry out in all languages, Italian, English, French, Spanish, Russian, and German, in small groups or, even better, in a private version.
During the visit, you can visit many places, including the room in which the sarcophagus of the emperor Hadrian was kept, the ancient historical prisons, and the Courtyard of the Lion (With decorations designed by Michelangelo). In these rooms, the decorated Popes stayed from marvelous Raphaelesque frescoes.
Castel Sant’Angelo (Mausoleum of Hadrian), built between 134 and 139, is one of Rome’s most essential and best-preserved monuments.
Once the guide has been met, the tour will begin with an explanation of Elio’s Bridge (Ponte Sant’Angelo), a Roman bridge over the Tiber River built in 134 AD, today known as Ponte Sant’Angelo. There are twelve statues of angels designed by Gian Lorenzo Bernini.
Once inside Castel Sant’Angelo, crossing several courtyards and climbing some ramps, stairs, and tunnels, you will reach the heart of the fortress to discover countless terriers and precious works of art. At the same time, the guide will tell you exciting stories and legends that have made this place famous worldwide.
Once you reach the last terrace, you can enjoy a breathtaking 360 ° view over the whole of Rome, and from here, you can admire St. Peter’s Basilica to take beautiful photographs.
Still today, Castel Sant’Angelo is connected to the Pope’s apartments in the Vatican through a passage suspended on arches, which the Popes used to escape and find refuge in case of emergency. In 2000, Castel Sant’Angelo underwent many changes and had different destinations for which it is one of the best-preserved monuments of ancient Rome. Over the centuries, from being the tomb of various Roman emperors and empresses (Adriano, Antonino Pio, Sabina, Faustina), in 403, it transformed into a military fortress. From the 11th to the 19th century, it then became a prison. In 1925, Castel Sant’Angelo was open to the public, becoming a museum, one of the most beautiful in Rome, known as the “National Museum of Castel Sant’Angelo.”
