    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.

    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.

    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

    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
