About
The monument was built by emperor Hadrian (117-138 AD) together with the Aelius bridge in front of it to become a mausoleum for himself and for his successors. In the course of centuries it became the defensive rampart of the Vatican City, the site of a garrison, a prison, but also the offices of the Vatican Treasury and Archive. Today the interior of the castle can be visited with its seventeenth century rich frescoed halls (Hall of Apollo, Hall of Paolina decorated with the Stories of Alexander the Great, Hall of Perseus with episode of the myth of the Greek hero, Room of Amore and Psiche), the prisons, the collection of antique arms, the painting gallery (with works by Carlo Crivelli, Luca Signorelli, and Dosso Dossi), the collection of ancient marbles, ceramics, and sculptures. The terrace offers one of the best panoramic views of the Historical Center.

Castel Sant'Angelo con Vincenzo
Vincenzo Spina è una guida straordinaria, che sa mescolare la storia di Roma con aneddoti e curiosità, facendo letteralmente volare il tempo insieme. Preparatissimo e professionale. Certamente prenoteremo altri tour con lui!

Passione e cultura
Oct 2021 • Family
Meravigliosa esperienza a Castel Sant’Angelo guidata da Vincenzo, vero e proprio ‘faro’ acceso di energia e informazioni sul simbolico sito romano. Mia moglie, io e nostri ragazzi di 13 e 11 anni abbiamo vissuto un pomeriggio pieno di suggestioni, aneddoti, cultura, arte che come una macchina nel tempo ci hanno catapultato in diverse epoche storiche, tutte vissute con leggerezza e semplicità. Prepariamoci al prossimo viaggio!!!

ESPERIENZA ENTUSIASMANTE!
Vincenzo è stato una guida superlativa: preparazione indiscutibile, che unita ad una simpatia travolgente, ha trasformato questo tour una visita interattiva che ci ha emozionato per 2 ore!!
Non solo dati e notizie storiche, ma anche tante info e curiosità sui vari periodi storici trattati!
Consigliatissimo!

Il miglior modo per visitare Roma!!!!
Non solo una guida!
Vincenzo Spina il nome della nostra guida per la gita in una fantastica Roma. Abbiamo visitato in tre giorni Musei Vaticani, Basilica di San Pietro, Castel Sant’Angelo, Centro storico, Anfiteatro Flavio e Fori…
Siamo stati trasportati da Vincenzo da un’epoca all’altra, da un imperatore ad un altro , da un artista ad un altro, in un viaggio tra dipinti, sculture, palazzi, storie e racconti di una città che ti lascia ad ogni passo a bocca aperta! Vincenzo ovviamente è stato fondamentale. Il tempo in sua compagnia è letteralmente volato…un pozzo infinito di informazioni, spiegate con passione e accurata semplicità, aneddoti e storie che ci hanno fatto ridere e divertire….avremmo voluto portalo via con noi! Amici miei (cit.) Se cercate una Guida con la G maiuscola per Roma, chiedete di Vincenzo. Sarà la scelta più giusta dell'intera vacanza nella capitale. Grazie di cuore per tutto!! Alessio e Tiziana

Ho partecipato sabato 19/6 alla visita guidata a Castel S.Angelo con un gruppo privato, composto da adulti e ragazzi. Vincenzo, la nostra guida, è stato molto competente ed ha coinvolto attivamente il gruppo, mantenendo sempre viva l'attenzione. Esperienza molto positiva , da consigliare.

Castel S.Angelo tour a prova di bambini!
Jun 2021
Avevo già avuto modo di partecipare a un tour con Vincenzo, guida coinvolgente e preparata, e ne ero rimasta entusiasta. Tanto che stavolta mi sono portata dietro tutta la famiglia, figli di 11 e 8 anni inclusi... Tornando a casa mi hanno detto di aver trovato la visita e le storie raccontate da Vincenzo interessantissime! Bravo, ti assicuro che non era facile, ma li hai conquistati!!!
