About the tour

This free tour in Spanish language will reveal the great secrets of St. Peter's Square and Sant'Angelo Castle. Discover the enigmas of the Vatican and travel around!

Our guide will show you iconic places such as St. Peter's Square and Sant'Angelo Castle, as well as other sites that inspired so many artists. We will cross the Sant'Angelo Bridge, covered with travertine marble, and we will admire the statues of the ten angels that narrate the Passion of Christ; we will cross the Via della Conciliazione, from where we will have one of the best views of the Vatican; we will pass below the Passeto di Borgo, the secret passageway that saved the Borgia and the Medici; we will peek into the tower of the controversial Vatican Bank. We will conclude in the wing of the "Arm of Charlemagne" (Vatican), guarded by the Swiss Guard, after crossing the Plaza de San Pedro and appreciate its Egyptian obelisk and its monumental fountains.

On the 500th anniversary of his death, the Vatican pays homage to Leonardo Da Vinci with the free exhibition of the work "Saint Jerome" (which for the first time is not found in the Vatican Museums). We are going to contemplate the only Roman work of the Florentine artist!

On this tour you will get to know curiosities and legends from one of the most emblematic areas of Western history. We wait for you!
