"Visit the Castel S. Angelo" Castel Sant'Angelo Tip by paulapes

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


Visit the Castel S. Angelo, on the Tiber close to the Vatican. Here is my ticket to enter the Castel...beautiful, isn't it? As you can see, it cost L.8000 when I was there in 1997. That's around 4USD.
The Pope retreated to this building when marauders descended on the city. The museum follows the history of the building that was built originally as Hadrians Mausoleum. And the beautiful bridge in front of the Castello was designed by Hadrian.

Address: Lungotevere Castello, close to the Vatican
Directions: Off Piazza Adriana or the St. Angelo Bridge
