Ok so about 20 min i to our tour our guide simply stops the tour and tells us to wait while he talks on the phone to the tour company. We heard the whole conversation because he left his mic on lol.

A lot of history in this building. Our guide focused on three periods of history dating back 2000 years and really provided a wonderful experience. For castle buffs and those looking for beautiful views, this is a must. Stairs and ramps are manageable and plenty of places to sit and take in everything. The added new sculptures are a great addition.

Fantastic Tour with knowledgeable Guide

We had a great tour with Oleg (pronouced like Alec). He was very knowledgeable about Castel Sant'Angelo and about Roman history in general. He was able to provide history of Castel Sant'Angelo as well as how it played a role in greater Roman history. It is wonderful to go on these types of tours as they bring so much more to life than what you would be able to do on your own, and bring in the greater context of history of Rome. Rome has such an extensive history; it is great to keep learning piece by piece and slowly it starts to come together, especially with great tour guides like Alec. Highly reccomend.

Views inside and outside were stunning. Our tour guide Alec was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Obviously enjoys his job. He began with the history of the fortress/mausoleum from the outside and guided us all the way through, commenting on the physical structure and use of a Castel Sant’Angelo over the centuries, stopping along the way and on the rooftop to take in the beautiful frescoes and vistas. I will do the tour again.

Our guide (Georgio I think) was a historian, very knowledgeable and very engaging. The Castel covers a wide range of history and he was able to successfully explain many centuries of Roman history, identifying a number of aspects which I hadn’t previously appreciated. Great tour!
