What people are saying about Castel Sant'Angelo

The guide was really great. He had a lot of knowledge and told us not only about the castello, but also about the city and gave us some great tips for places to visit. The guidetour was said to be 1 hour but it was even longer. Without a guide it would be not half as good. The view from the top is beautiful, you should not miss it!

It was so funny & exciting. Rome at night. It was beautiful, super romantic and something very special. Our wishes were also taken into account. We ate the best ice cream from Rome. It was amazing. 2 hours. No 3rd and forever a highlight for us. Mimmo was just great. Thanks for that. Unforgettable.

Very interesting tour and a very friendly tour-guide who told the story of the monument in an entertaining way. We really can recormend this tour!

A great experience. Everything is very uncomplicated as it should be on vacation. Gladly again

Had a wonderful tour, was very insightful and friendly. Was a perfect start to our Rome trip.
