          Museo Nazionale di Castel Sant'Angelo
          Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
          Known as Hadrian's Tomb, the Castel Sant'Angelo is a fortress located on the right bank of the Tiber, a short distance from the Vatican City. Construction of the building began in the year 135 under the direction of the Emperor Hadrian, who intended to use it as mausoleum for himself and his family. It was finished in the year 139 and a short time later, it became a military building, which in the year 403 would be integrated to the Aurelian Walls. In the year 590, while a great epidemic of plague devastated the city, the Pope Gregory I had a vision of Saint Michael the Archangel on top of the castle, announcing the end of the epidemic. In memory of the apparition the building is crowned with a statue of an angel. In the year 1277 an 800 metre fortified corridor was built that connected the castle with the Vatican City so that the Pope could escape in the event that he were in danger. During the sieges that occurred in Rome during 1527, the Pope Clement VII used the fortress as a refuge. The Castel Sant'Angelo is split into five floors which can be reached by a spiral ramp that first reaches the chamber of ashes and subsequently the cells in which a number of historical figures were incarcerated. Advancing toward the upper part of the castle you will find different rooms that functioned as a Papal residence, decorated with perfectly preserved frescoes from the Renaissance period, besides the extensive collection of weapons. In the upper floor there is a large terrace where you can take amazing photographs of the city from above.

          Amazing!
          Our tours guides were awesome!!!! The day was filled with adventure and even though we could not do the boat ride because of rough waters it was worth taking this tour! The views and the sights of the island are absolutely stunning! The lunch we had was off the charts! We were treated like royalty!

          A wonderful and moving experience!
          Our family of 5 from the US booked this trip as an excursion for a day to get out of busy Rome. A beautiful trip to the more rural Adriatic side of Italy. Two deeply moving spiritual sites that cannot be expressed with words. Francesco and Roberto took amazing care of us for the day and also sprinkled in some walks of the local towns along the way, local food (amazing arrosticini!!), and other surprises we appreciated. Thank you both again for a wonderful day!!

          A great to end Italy trip
          I could never have imagined a more beautiful experience from our recent day trip to Assisi and Cascia. A BIG Grazie to our tour host Juliana and her team Roberto, Rita and Madelina for their fantastic effort. They were tireless, very patient, friendly, considerate and made us feel special and like family all day long. Juliana and Roberto plus their excellent tour guides provided such a great insight into the history/story of the three saints. They allowed us to venerate, meditate, pray and connect with the peace of St Francis, St Claire and St Rita. So much to see, so many little things we never knew and learned with constant pleasant surprises at every turn make this tour into a life changing experience. This was one of the greatest tours my mum and I had in Italy. I highly recommend booking this luxury tour to Assissi and Cascia.

          Excellent Gem with Impressionist too!
          We spent two hours in this museum and enjoyed every bit of it. There have a wonderful grouping of lions sculptures on the steps as you enter. It looks like a pride lounging. I wanted to pet them. Inside there was a notable set of dog sculpture that looks to be in a tussle. There were many Spanish impressionist painting as well as a Van Gogh, two Courbets, a few Rodins and a single Cezanne. The rest of the museum had wonderful juxtaposition between modern and classic. Often we would look through the rooms to see a classical sculpture next to very modern pieces. Loved it. There is a nice cafe with table service. There of course were bathrooms, downstairs, and lockers for your backpack. There is a bus/tram stop right out front. Definitely worth a few hours of time!

          Mystical & Peaceful..
          I recommend taking a tour to make sure to visit the Chapel and the modern Church! A beautiful Mural Mosaic story telling comparative between Saint Francis of Assisi and Padre Pio not to be missed🙏🏼

          Above and Beyond Expectations!!
          This tour exceeded all expectations. Rosanna was an amazing guide who went above and beyond to make our experience a once in a lifetime opportunity. This trip was a personal pilgrimage for my 84 year old mother. Rosanna was able to secure us a private tour of the monastery, an audience with one of the sisters, with whom she could share her personal experiences with St Rita, and a first hand look at a new relic gifted to the basilica. My mother will never forget this trip. Her joy brings tears to my eyes whenever I think about it. And the trip to Roccaporena was the icing on the cake. Thank you Rosanna!!!

          An absolute must if you go to Capri - 10/10.
          We had an incredible time on the tour. Our tour guide, Mario, was amazing the entire time. He listened to our wishes, took us to fantastic places and gave us an insight into the sights at Capri. We highly recommend the tour and Mario as the guide. 10/10.

          Amazing!!!
          What an amazing and unforgettable experience we had with Rome Italy Explora. We spent three full days with Bianca, the most amazing tour guide, to Capri one day, Amalfi the next day, and ended at the Colosseum on the last. Our trip to Rome would have not been the same without theses experiences and amazing hospitality. We learned so much from Bianca and shared so many great memories as a family together! We hope to make it back to Italy soon and share more great memories with Explora.

          Catacombs, Colosseum, and Roman Forum Private Tour
          The Catacombs, Colosseum, and Roman Forum were some of the landmarks that we were so excited to see when visiting Rome. The private tour of each was phenomenal and so insightful! We learned so much history while being taken care of through the private transport between locations and while on the tour. What an amazing experience!

          The Papal Visit was amazing!
          Rosanna and Bianca were absolutely amazing! Couldn’t have gone smoother and had the best seats available thanks to them. It was a 10/10 for sure and highly recommend. Their customer service is superb.

          Great guide on trip to Capri from Rome.
          I have nothing but great things to say about this tour. Tour guide Bianca picked us up at our hotel early in the morning (she was in lobby when we came down) and escorted us to a luxury van with plenty of room for the 3 of us that was waiting to take us to Naples. The driver was great, very focused and we felt safe during the ride. They purchased ferry tickets to Capri so we didn’t have to stand in line or figure out what type of tickets to purchase. Upon our arrival in Capri, she had a car waiting to take us on a tour to Anacapri. We hung out there and then took the tram up to the top where the view was spectacular. Bianca stood in the long line and bought those tickets while we sipped a cocktail and watched the sights. After taking the car back down to the harbor, she escorted us to a private boat to tour the island from the water. We went around the island, and stopped and pulled into several grottos which the island is famous for. After the boat tour, we went into the town area and sat at a waterside restaurant. The people that worked there knew Bianca and were all smiles when they saw her. Then we started the trip home, finishing a truly wonderful day. Bianca was FABULOUS. She was always smiling, was very friendly, spoke English very well as she shared facts along the way and just made the day for us. She did all the thinking and legwork so we could just enjoy and experience everything. No concerns, no worries, no figuring anything out, no language barriers - everything was done for us, and done with a smile. I would highly recommend this tour to everyone, and suspect that any other tours that Bianca is involved in will be a similar and wonderful experience. Ciao!

          Just perfect!!
          It all went really well. Rosaria picked us up at the hotel and we went to the Vatican. The entrance went really smoothly and with the blessing help from Rosaria, Rossana and their incredible team we were able to get front seat rows. Better was impossible. They all were really kind and gentle with my mother, who has 87 years old and always dreamed to attend the Papal Audience. Again, better was impossible! I truly recommend it!!

        La visita di uno dei monumenti più belli di Roma è stata organizzata al meglio dalla nostra guida che ci ha spiegato la storia del castello e dai nostri accompagnatori , sempre pronti a rispondere ad ogni nostra esigenza . Il giro all'interno del castello è stato accompagnato da spiegazioni e percorsi interessanti anche per i più piccoli partecipanti della visita, perciò adatto a tutte le età. Magnifica la vista di Roma dall'alto una volta arrivati in cima.
        Bellissima giornata in compagnia di amici tra cultura e arte , grazie alla fantastica organizzazione dei nostri accompagnatori.

        Mai avrei immaginato che la visita a Castel Sant’Angelo mi avrebbe così tanto meravigliata e stupita. Conoscere la storia di questo luogo è stata per me una vera scoperta. Grazie alla guida Marianna ho appreso notizie importanti. Consiglio vivamente di fare questa visita molto interessante. I ringraziamenti vanno anche allo staff di Rome Italy Explora che grazie a loro, alla perfetta organizzazione ho arricchito di molto il mio bagaglio culturale e il tutto nel rispetto delle vigenti regole anti COVID.
