Amazing Segway tour with Mario

We had a great Segway tour with Mario around Trastevere. Not only was Mario a perfect tour guide but he was also brilliant at making us feel comfortable on the segways, as we were novices. Very fun and informative tour!!

Wonderful tour

It was our first Segway experience and we had a great time! One hour is perfect to get a first impression on Trastevere and Marco had some really good recommendations for where to go for lunch and dinner afterwards!


Visit Castel Sant Angelo

Castel Sant Angelo, or “Castle of the Holy Angel” is much more than a castle. Since 123 AD this imposing building has been a prison, a fortress for fleeing popes, and most famously, the mausoleum of Emperor Hadrian. The legendary Castle on the bank of the Tiber River has a secret passageway to St Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City, along the “Passetto” or Borgo Corridor. With the right Castel Sant Angelo tickets, you can access this hidden passage and walk along the same tunnel that Popes Alexander VI and Clement VII used to escape from intruders, mobs and killers.

Cross the Angeli Bridge - Book your Castel Sant Angelo skip the line tickets and enter through the secret passage. 

Get ready to travel back through time on an exhilarating Castel Sant Angelo tour! Did you know? Castel St Angel changed from the mausoleum of Hadrian to a papal fortress after the angelic vision of Pope Gregory the Great. During the Great Plague of Rome, he saw Archangel Michael standing on top of the Mausoleum waving his flaming sword. A sign that the Plague was about to end? And so it did! Also, the Chamber of Ashes was used to house the remains of the imperial family. For more legends, myths and historical facts behind the “Castel Sant Angelo Roma” make your way to the banks of the Roman river.
