Description

The Castel Sant’Angelo (Castle of the Holy Angel) is the common name of the Mausoleum of Hadrian, one of the 5 most respected Emperor of Ancient Rome. Built between 134 and 139 AD, this cylindrical fortress has almost 2,000 years of fascinating history that will impress both you and your children.

Follow you certified guide as he/she takes you inside the Castel Sant'Angelo, once the tallest building in Rome. It served as a mausoleum for 300 years, until it was turned into a fortress. This fortress was later used by the Popes, and served as a prison as well. Today, it houses a small museum describing the history of this iconic Roman monument.

Discover the Ponte Sant’Angelo (the Sant’Angelo Bridge) as well as the small inner courtyard where executions were once held. Another highlight is the Passetto di Borgo, a small elevated passageway linking the Castel to the Vatican, which played a key role in Dan Brown’s novel Angels & Demons. You will also have the privilege to enjoy the beautiful panoramic view of Rome from the top floor.

A Truly Engaging Experience

By: Anna

Family Twist provided several kid-friendly tours on our trip to Paris and London. The guides were knowledgeable and related easily to our children. We were all thoroughly engaged because of the professional and friendly guides. The little gifts for the children were a sweet perk.

Family Twist Review

By: Rajiv


Reviewed on: 30 Mar 2018

Our experience with Family Twist was wonderful. Our main interaction was with two of their employees, Susanna and Camille. They were prompt, courteous and extremely helpful. One our most recent trip to Paris, Family Twist engaged two guides for us. Each of them was perfect in their own way. For the historic part of the itinerary, we had Katia. She was very knowledgeable and was able to engage a 9 year old for long periods of time. She has great games for my child that entertained him and educated him at the same time. The other guide, Laurenie, is a chocolate expert who gave us a fantastic walking chocolate tour of Paris.
