Full description

Pre-book your combo skip-the-line entry ticket and private tour of Castel Sant'Angelo, also known as Hadrian’s Mausoleum. Explore the dark side of Rome through the esoteric messages hidden in the intricate frescoes and statues.

Take a journey back in time and travel through the history of Castel Sant'Angelo from its original function as a dynastic mausoleum to its later role as a fortress of the Popes.

See the secret passage that connects the castle with the Vatican and visit the tomb of Emperor Hadrian. Walk through the papal corridors and rooms and be amazed by the Gran Loggia of Paul III. Marvel at the grotesque motifs and at the illusionistic trompe l'oile painting.

End your tour in the upper terrace, from where you can soak in one of the best panoramic views of Rome.
