Highlights
A guided tour of Castel Sant’Angelo and St. Peter’s Square in Vatican City
Zip past the crowds with skip-the-line access to the castle
Learn the history of the fortress built as Emperor Hadrian’s mausoleum
Admire St. Peter’s Square and the facade of the Basilica of St. Peter
What to expect
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.

Very knowledgable tour guide
Sep 2020
Louisa was an excellent tour guide around the castle. We were lucky that we ended up as the only two on the tour so it was a very intimate experience allowing me to ask many questions. What really made the tour special was that Louisa took us to the Pope’s Sunday blessing in St Peter’s Square after the castle tour and stayed with us until it concluded.

Great castle with lots of history
May 2019 • Solo
The tour was great, we were only 3 people so we could interact with the guide more easily. One thing to know is that the passetto di borgo was closed for restauration (May 2019) so we didn`t get to walk in it as promised in the tour but I guess that`s not the company`s fault. However they should specify it in the "what to expect" information.

A historically interesting museum
Had been here on a Holy Saturday after our visit to St.Peters Basallica. ( 20th of April 2019 ).
The Mausoleum of Hadrian, usually known as Castel Sant'Angelo, is a towering cylindrical building in Parco Adriano, Rome, Italy. It was initially commissioned by the Roman Emperor Hadrian as a mausoleum for himself and his family. The building was later used by the popes as a fortress and castle, and is now a museum.

Rude receptionist
Although the castel was lovely. The woman at the reception was very rude. She was no help at all, I have been to many places but she was the most rudest receptionist I encountered.

Dear Guest, if you are talking about the receptionist inside the Sant'Angel Castel, she is not from our company and we can not do anything about her behavior with the guests. For us, the MEATOURS & EVENTS company, the guests and their necessities are the priority, from the check-in moment at the meeting point with our members of staff and with our guides during the tour. Thank you Best Regards MeaTours & Events

Wonderful Tour!
Oct 2018 • Couples
Was the last tour of our 8 day trip and was the favorite of all.. Thunderstorm rolled in right at the time of us meeting which made it all the more exciting, but cleared by the time we got on the roof thankfully! :)
Georgio of Raphael tours was awesome and very knowledgeable about the Castel...Tour wasn't overly long but still covered everything we needed to know, we did skip over the armory which by boyfriend would have like to see but regardless was thouroughly enjoyed by our group of 3!

Cancelled the day before by operator
The tour was cancelled the day before by the operator via email, as they had taken too many bookings! We booked in may and checked availability at the time. Rang Viatours who are the operator who told us they had booked too many people and that was it. They offered us the next day however we are on another tour. The customer service was basic and unhelpful bearing in mind we are in Rome and have spent over £400 with them on yours this week. Stay clear and search for a reputable company to get your tour.
