Walk around Passetto di Borgo

The Passetto (small passage) is the passage atop the old Vatican wall between St. Peter's and the Castel Sant' Angelo. This an 800m long way is also known as the Passetto di Borgo, or in earlier times, the Corridore di Borgo. During the Sack of Rome in 1527, it was used by Pope Clement VII to escape to the Castel Sant' Angelo.

This passage is built to provide the Pope with an escape route from the Vatican to Castel Sant'Angelo during the Vatican's siege. Unless you know what you're looking for, it looks like another fortification wall. From Castel Sant'Angelo, looking to the Vatican, you can have a great view.
