Full description

Skip the line and enter Emperor Hadrian's Tomb. Walk through its fortified corridors and learn the mysterious and multi-faceted history. Explore the five floors of the castle and learn of those who were once incarcerated there. Take memorable photos of the city once you reach the terrace.

Meet your guide in front of the entrance and enter the castle. Prepare to hear the troubled and one of a kind history and learn why it is considered a monument, museum, and archaeological site all at once.

Walk the spiral ramp to reach each of the five floors and discover the fortified corridor, Passetto di Borgo, built to connect to the Vatican City so the Pope could escape should he be in danger. Find the chamber of ashes and the cells which imprisoned many historical figures.

Make your way to the upper parts of the castle and find different rooms that served as a Papal residence. Observe the perfectly preserved frescoes from the Reneaissance period, and the extensive collection of weaponry. View the city from the top terrace and take beautiful photos of the skyline.
