Vatican City and St. Angelo Castle

The Palace, the Church and the Castel, we will get to know Vatican’s history: Church’s art, faith and defense stronghold.

Probably it doesn’t exist on earth a place as amazing as the Vatican Museums. During the visit you can see statues and objects that will recount of the ancient Greece and Rome but also Baroque and Renaissance arazzi together with frescoes and paintings, bas-relief and trompe l’Oeil. The Museum’s heart is Michelangelo genius’ masterwork: the Sistine Chapel. Its beauty and its magnificence amazes now as much as then. After the Vatican Museums you will access St Peter’s Basilica, the biggest church in the world! A real marble jewel filled with artworks. Crossing Vatican City borders we will head towards St Angelo Castle. This massive castle was Popes’ fortresses and it has been modified several times during the centuries. Thanks to its strong defensive wall and its strategic position the castle withstood several attacks. In its prisons were left to rot Church’s enemies. From its roof terrace there is an uncommon town’s view.

Meeting Point Option 1

On our recent visit to Rome we rented an apartment near the Spanish Steps. The owner recommended using Romebylocals for any tours we might be interested in. We could not have been more pleased with Cristina and the professional services we received during our stay. The company was in constant contact with me prior to our arrival and during our stay. They accommodated our wishes and made adjustments to scheduling due to one person in our party departing at a different time than the rest. We never felt rushed on our tours and Cristina was very knowledgable and provided a fun and educational environment for everyone in our party. I would highly recommend using Romebylocals for any tours you may be interested in during a visit to Rome.

We had 2 days of touring with Romebylocals in May.  It was outstanding in every way.  Easy access to the sites and the tour guide was knowledgable and fun.  I would highly recommend them for any excursion!
