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!

This ticket has saved us from queuing for an hour, even for those who already had a reservation, only those who had a Roma pass had the right to enter at any time. We use it in the castle.

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!

The Castle was a must see for me during my trip to Rome and it offers spectacular views of the city from its terrace
