B&B La Casa del Conte - San Pietro

What to visit on foot – St. Peter Area

With just few steps from La Casa del Conte you can admire the Mausoleum of Hadrian, usually known as Castel Sant’Angelo used by the Popes as a fortress, and is now a museum. After the castle this Walking Tour Itinerary will guide you through the historic quarter of Borgo Pio well known for its medieval features, popular restaurants, bars and trendy shops and finally the grandiose elliptical square and the Papal Basilica of St. Peter with its marvellous interior decor and large monuments. St. Peter’s Basilica is the most renewed work of Renaissance architecture and still today remain one of the two largest churches in the world. It was designed principally by Donato Bramante, Michelangelo, Carlo Moderno and Gian Lorenzo Bernini.
