Tour description

This tip-based, Spanish-language tour will reveal the great secrets of St. Peter's Square and Castel Sant'Angelo.
The group will have around 15 participants , so we can enjoy a more personalized tour. Discover the enigmas of the Vatican and explore its surroundings!
We will cross the Sant'Angelo bridge , covered with travertine marble, and admire the statues of the ten angels that narrate the Passion of Christ; We will stop at Castle Sant'Angelo ; We will walk along Via della Conciliazione , from where we will have one of the best views of the Vatican ; We will pass under the Passeto di Borgo , the secret passage that saved the Borgias and the Medici; We will look at 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 St. Peter's Square and appreciating its Egyptian obelisk and its monumental fountains. On this tour you will discover one of the most emblematic areas of Western history. We are waiting for you!

Children under 18 do not need a reservation and must be accompanied by an adult.

Sunday shifts at 10 a.m. : The Pope speaks from his balcony at 12 noon. We will end the tour in that place to see it.
