The fortress was originally commissioned by the Roman Emperor Hadrian as a burial chamber for his family and for himself. During the tour, you’ll visit several rooms used by the popes, including Pope Paul III private rooms. But beyond the amazing decorations, golden stuccos, sparkling marble floors, the castle hides a dark heart: the dreadful prisons, the most terrible one was inserted in a vent over the elicoidal ramp of Hadrian’s Mausoleum, a small room accessible just from a trapdoor, and another one in the floor was used to get rid of corpses. The Castel Sant’Angelo has also inspired several writers and directors, for example, Dan Brown mentions the Castle in his best seller “Angels and Demons”

You’ll climb to the top of the building to the terrace, where you’ll enjoy stunning views of the Rome and a great place for selfies.
