Our guide is extremely talented and passionate, and gave us a comprehensive tour. We had a great experience and our 12 and 14 year year olds were quizzing us after this tour put nicely in a historical perspective. We pack our trips with tours and this one is a special one. Thanks for being generous with your time.

Kudos to a guide named Alec for making this tour an excellent value for money! I would also advise anyone planning to visit the Castel Sant'Angelo to have a guide booked, that way you won't need to stay in line (which was surprisingly long).

Very cool and interesting sight. We didn’t do the tour, we just walked through. Excellent view from the top, and not very crowded. Definitely worth seeing!

It was very easy to catch tha site an change tickets and we had priority entrance so really skip-the-line

Very interesting castle with long history. Excellent view from the top.
