Full description

Uncover the secrets within the walls of the Castel Sant'Angelo, a historic mausoleum that's now a museum on the Tiber River's right bank. Explore one of the lesser-known gems of Rome with fast-track entry tickets and enjoy views of the city from above. Upgrade your visit to include an audio guide.  Skip the lines and walk inside to browse through the artifacts that narrate the building's many transformations. First erected to be a monumental tomb, then a fortress during the medieval ages, and a defensive post for barbarian invasions, the castle will offer you new insights into Roman history. Explore the 5 floors of the museum heading towards a spiral ramp, then see the cells and the rooms that served as a Papal residence, as well as a chamber of ashes where you can marvel at the remains of iconic Roman characters and frescoes preserved perfectly.

End this informative trip on the Castle’s astonishing roof terrace and have a picturesque view of the whole city. Be prepared to spot Vatican City, the Tiber River, and the famous Bridge of Angels.

I was late on the time i booked due to some unecpected reasons, i called in the office and then 5 minutes later the guy came with my ticket. It is a must see when you are in Rome as it gives the best view of the city too from above and of course it is one of the film locations of angels and demons (if you are a fan)

This was very neat too see. The guide allowed us the opportunity to peruse at our leisure and soak in the views. It gave history a a nice facts of the e different areas of the castel. I loved the small models of god it looked throughout the ages. The pope’s rooms and the outlook balconies were a true treat. I recommend this if you have a chance.

Nice surprise this visit to Castel Sant'Angelo, the building is amazing, the 360° view of Rome is a real plus! You can sit down easily and admire the interior of the rooms or the landscape. A good moment of relaxation. The skip-the-line ticket is comfortable. Activity to be recommended without restriction.
