"Riverside Walk - Low Tide Only" Castel Sant'Angelo Tip by mrclay2000

Castel Sant'Angelo, Rome: 22 reviews and 21 photos

  Tiber embankment, below Castel Sant'Angelo
by mrclay2000

Favorite thing: Since the Tiber is given to occasional flooding, the river embankments were put into place in the 1890s. Obviously when the water is high, there is no walking on the platforms, but when the water is low, you can walk nearly alongside the green Tiber. While the water itself hardly charms the eye in its polluted state, or would if it were clear be as romantic as the riverside walks in Paris, these embankments give you a different perspective of Rome.
