Go back to 125AD and explore the imposing Castel Sant'Angelo and Sant'Angelo Bridge in the Adriano Park of Rome. An authorized guide will lead you to the front line to enjoy quick access to the cylindrical mausoleum of Hadrian and illustrate the changes that took place over the centuries behind the fortified walls of the first castle built in Rome. Your tour also includes Ponte Sant'Angelo. Also known as Pons Aelius, it crosses the Tiber River from the rions (neighborhoods) of Ponte and Borgo. Built by Hadrian in 134 AD, the bridge is famous for the baroque statues of angels that hold relief elements of the Passion of Christ. Strolling you can admire the Borgo Pio with its delightful and characteristic medieval streets and buildings until you reach the most famous square in the world, Piazza San Pietro, with its colonnade, 140 statues of saints, fountains and the wonderful St. Peter's Basilica.
