"Castel Sant Angelo" Castel Sant'Angelo Tip by fishandchips

Castel Sant'Angelo, Rome: 146 reviews and 289 photos


The castle was built in the 2nd century AD as a tomb for Emperor Hadrian. It was built over the Roman walls and is linked to the Vatican by an underground passage (for fleeing Popes?). If you visit here a must is a trip through the Renaissance apartments. You can also go through the dank prison cells that once echoed with the screams of torture.
