Return Details

Saint Peter's Square, Piazza San Pietro, Città del Vaticano, Vatican City
Meet your guide in central Rome and set out across the Ponte Sant’ Angelo, an ancient bridge that spans the River Tiber and was built in 134 AD by Emperor Hadrian. Continue to the mighty fortress of Castel Sant' Angelo, built to house Hadrian’s tomb and later converted to a castle in the 14th century.

Learn about its fascinating history as a castle, refuge and prison from your guide as you explore the ruins, admire sculptures by Bernini, Raggi and Morelli, and walk in the footsteps of former Popes along the Passetto di Borgo. With your convenient skip-the-line tickets, jump the queue and head straight into the star attraction – the grand mausoleum of Emperor Hadrian.

After leaving the castle, take a short walk to Vatican City and immerse yourself in Rome’s spiritual center. Your tour ends in St. Peter's Square, where your guide will point out the striking façade of St. Peter’s Basilica, the monumental fountains and the immense Vatican Museums.
