Just south of Vatican City stands Castel Sant’Angelo, where popes sought solace during sieges. Climb to the top for splendid views of Vatican City and the Tiber. At its base you can see the Ponte Sant’Angelo with Bernini’s exquisitely carved marble angels.

During the Middle Ages it left its tomb function to become a fortification to defend the city. It is famous for being connected to the Vatican via a fortified corridor, the passetto, which allowed several popes to take refuge within its walls in difficult times.

Point of Interest
“The tour starts by the famous Spanish Steps, in the heart of Rome’s luxury district. From there we will be visiting the main attractions of the city such as the Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon, Piazza Navona and more. Walking around you will also have the chance to become orientated with Rome’s often confusing complex of ancient streets and alleys, while I’ll tell you all about the stories and legends that surround these magical spots. We will end in Campo de’ Fiori in the heart of Rome’s eating district, where I’ll suggest you the best restaurants to explore authentic Roman food. For info about this tour don’t hesitate to contact me ”

Plaza
“It constitutes the grandest access to the heart of Rome. At the center of the square stands the Flaminian Obelisk, 25 meters high and the oldest in Rome. Over the years has undergone many changes, and the one you see today is the result of the work of the various popes who have followed, which ended with thee churches looking out onto the square: Santa Maria del Popolo and the twin churches on the south side, called Santa Maria dei Miracoli and Santa Maria in Montesanto.”
