Travel back to 125 AD and explore the imposing Castel Sant'Angelo and Ponte Sant’Angelo in the Parco Adriano of Rome.
A licensed guide will take you to the front of the line to enjoy fast track entry to Hadrian’s cylindrical mausoleum, and explain the changes that took place throughout the centuries behind the fortified walls of the the first ever castle built in Rome.
Initially commissioned by Emperor Hadrian, the building was later used by the popes as a fortress. Now a museum, it was erected on the right bank of the River Tiber and features a garden top and golden quadriga. The popes converted the structure into a castle in the 14th century, with a fortified corridor called the Passetto di Borgo that Pope Nicholas III built to connect the castle to St Peter's Basilica.
Your tour also includes the Ponte Sant’Angelo. Also known as the Pons Aelius, it crosses the Tiber River from the riones (neighborhoods) of Ponte and Borgo. Built by Hadrian in 134 AD, the bridge is renowned for the Baroque statues of angels holding aloft elements of the Passion of Christ.

Great tour and great guide
Super interesting guided tour with nice guide, booking is definitely worth it.
We are 4 adults aged 62-70 and have explored Rome on our own in 8 days. 4 guided tours, arranged by the friendly employees on the phone of rent-a-guide, have been a great help to us The Vatican Museum, St. Peter's Basilica and the Sistine Chapel were brought closer to us by Flavio... Passing endless lines of people, our small group (15) was led through all the rooms. Flavio is an excellent city guide who has guided us very well with a lot of information and knowledge in his quiet way. Thank you very much
After the city tour at sunset this was the second tour with our city guide Rosa. Very interesting and informative tour with integrated art exhibition. Thank you very much
Our Guide Rosa was great! Highly recommended.
First of all a huge praise to Partyamo Tours. Here we were the only ones and had a private tour with Alessandro He has a great way of bringing the really interesting history of the Engelsburg closer to you. He is very competent in his knowledge and really recommendable!
