This tour will include a visit to the Vatican Museums, along with the Sistine Chapel and St Peter’s Basilica. Once outside the Basilica, we will walk around the Borgo district, or what’s left of it (more will be explained during the tour!).
The route to Castel Sant’Angelo will include passing beneath the so-called Passetto di Borgo – above the defensive walls around St. Peter’s, this was the Pope’s secret exit from the Vatican, an escape route that allowed him to reach the castle or flee from it.
You can read more on the fascinating history of Castel Sant’Angelo on our dedicated post [HERE].
This tour is roughly 4 hours long (not including the Vatican Museums tour and the visit to the Basilica).
