Ezio Auditore fighting guards on the Passetto di Borgo

The Passetto di Borgo is an eight-hundred meter long elevated walkway that runs through the Vaticano District in Rome, connecting the Sistine Chapel with the Castel Sant'Angelo.


On 28 December 1499, the Assassin Ezio Auditore da Firenze fought his way along the Passetto di Borgo in order to reach Pope Alexander VI, Grand Master of the Italian Templars.[1]

Roughly four years later, after Rodrigo's son, Cesare, killed him using a poison-filled apple, Cesare used the Passetto to try and reach the Apple of Eden which Rodrigo had hidden in the courtyard within St. Peter's Basilica. However, this attempt ultimately failed, as Ezio managed to race to the location first and retrieve it, shortly escaping the Vatican afterwards.[2]


  • In Assassin's Creed II, the Passetto di Borgo was significantly larger, looking much more like a city wall than the raised walkway it is in reality.
  • In Assassin's Creed II, the Passetto di Borgo was wrongly placed on the banks of the Tiber River.
  • In Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, the Passetto di Borgo was an out-of-bounds area.
