New areas open and late night visits
This is what I always wanted to see
Passetto di Borgo
I hope that this stays open for a while. I don't think I can get to rome befreo Feb
Me too! From the way I read it, the Passetto is open year round, but must be booked in advance. The night opening is from 16 July to 4 September. I'm going to try and book for my visit in October this year. I'll report back!

Oooops... According to its website, The "Nights at the Terrace" have not been authorized this year: http://www.castelsantangelo.com/index.asp And, concerning the new areas open, there is nothing on the web.
>>I wonder why the information about the Castel Sant'Angelo is not available in its own website... =(<<
Because Italian Web sites are not updated nearly often enough and because what *should* be called Polo Museale Romano (see Polo Museale Fiorentino) is - stupidly, in my opinion - called Galleria Borghese.
For the most regularly updated information, look at www.060608.it - the Italian version; the English version is often lacking. Surprisingly, though, the Passetto information is also there in English:
Interesting and helpful answers!! Thank you both!! Looking forward to enjoying "Il Giardino degli Aranci"... gorgeous!!
Has anyone heard about openings after the summer "special opening" time period? Specifically, we are in Rome the week of 17-23 October and would be interested in viewing the passageway if it is open. I have not been able to find anything other than the 16 July-4 September operating hours, so I am wondering if it will be closed after 4 September or if they just have a reduced operating schedule.
