On arriving at Castel Sant'Angelo a few minutes late we managed to find the guide, who was actually looking for us. The tour covered all the main attactions of the monument, starting from the bottom up. We were taught the key elements of every room and we left the place just a bit more knowledgeable, which has to count as something. Apart from the educational aspect of the tour, we were also led to several breathtaking points through the structure and we had the chance to take pictures. The view from the top was amazing. We definitely recommend it.

We were going to leave this off the itinerary, but timewise it worked out and very glad it did. The tour was extended by one hour (no problem with that, usually the opposite) and our tour guide (sorry, forgot her name) was excellent. The pace was not too fast, not too slow, but the information was great. There was a mix of history related to the castle and the items we were seeing and experiencing. We thoroughly enjoyed the entire visit.

The Castel was amazing, I had no idea of it’s history and beauty! Our guide was sensational, she was so passionate and knowledgable, 100% so this place with a guide!
