"Best view of the Vatacan is from here!" Castel Sant'Angelo Tip by actor22_2000

Castel Sant'Angelo, Rome: 145 reviews and 284 photos

This was a very nice surprise during of visit to Rome as the castle is in very nice shape with several nice miltary pieces in the museum. The jewel of our visit was the view at the top of the castle. When you reach the top after a nice climb, look to your right and you will have a great photo opportunity of the Vatacan. There is a los a nice little cafe on the second level that you can sit and view the city.

If you are going to make a visit, do your homework...there is a lot of history here and could easily be over looked. We were lucky enough to spend three Euros to have a "group" tour with a degreed hostorian to the dungeons of the castle. The Group ended up being my wife and I and was incredile! She had great english and such a passion for her work. When entering the castle, look at the posted tours that will be listed on a board before entering themain portion of the castle. We took our tour on a Sunday at 2:30. I think most of the tours happen on Saturday and Sunday.

Address: Lungotevere Castello, 50, 00186 Roma, Italy
Directions: If you go to the Vatacan you can not miss it.
