Located on the right bank of the Tiber only a short distance from the Vatican City, the Castel Sant'Angelo is an ancient fortress with centuries of history. Built for the Roman Emperor Hadrian, the building has played an important part in Rome’s history. Discover this architectural landmark with skip-the-line, hosted access. Explore the museum's seven floors to discover an extensive collection of ancient artifacts and perfectly preserved frescoes from the Renaissance period. Climb the spiral staircase to reach the Chamber of Ashes where a number of historical figures were incarcerated, before continuing up to visit the Papal Residence. Finish the experience by admiring one of the largest churches in the world, St. Peter’s Basilica, with a audio guided tour.

Es wäre super gewesen, wenn man uns im Vorhinein gesagt hätte, dass der Audioguide mittels App am Smartphone nach Scan des QR Codes funktioniert. Dann spart man sich nämlich das Anstellen im Petersdom, wo man dann diese Info von nem netten Mitarbeiter erhält. Für ein normales Audioguide Gerät muss man nämlich dennoch aufzahlen.
