On arriving at Castel Sant'Angelo a few minutes late we managed to find the guide, who was actually looking for us. The tour covered all the main attactions of the monument, starting from the bottom up. We were taught the key elements of every room and we left the place just a bit more knowledgeable, which has to count as something. Apart from the educational aspect of the tour, we were also led to several breathtaking points through the structure and we had the chance to take pictures. The view from the top was amazing. We definitely recommend it.

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!

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!

Great guide. Federico explained everything with much passion and in proper English. Would recommend it to anyone . Thanks again!

It was just my partner, myself and another couple. The tour guide was excellent and we highly enjoyed it.
