Castel Sant'Angelo Wheelchair Accessible Tours

Castel Sant'Angelo accessible tours, is a fortress located along the right bank of the Tiber not far from the Vatican.

Is also known as the Mausoleum of Hadrian.

The history of Castel Sant’Angelo is closely linked to that of Rome.

The constant changes, poverty and wealth of the city are inevitably reflected in the imposing structure that has rested on the placid waters of the Tiber for almost two thousand years.

Its construction began in 135 AC, by order of Emperor Hadrian, who wanted to use it as a mausoleum for his family.

Its construction continued until 139, subsequently becoming a military building, which in 403 was integrated into the Aurelian Walls complex.

Thanks to its sturdy and secure structure, Castel Sant'Angelo houses the Vatican Archives and Treasury, but it was also adapted to court and prison.

When the function of the Castle changed, its physiognomy and its layout also changed through a series of interventions over the course of four centuries.

Despite the many vicissitudes that have seen Castel Sant’Angelo as the protagonist.

This splendid monument, largely intact, remains one of the most popular with tourists, both Italian and foreign.

Millions visitors visit it every year thanks to its majesty and architecture.

Touring Capitoline Hill

The first place you come across after entering Castel Sant'Angelo is a small courtyard.

The courtyard of the Savior, whose name originates from the marble bust depicting Christ which dates back to the XV century, previously inserted in the arch of the internal facade.

Then there is the ambulatory of Bonifacio IX from which you enter a large clearing, the courtyard of the shootings, where the executions of the condemned took place.

On this courtyard overlooks the Chapel of the Crucifix where the condemned went before being executed.

Today it houses the Museum bookshop.
