    Great terrace to admire the views of the city. It was open till midnight and I've stayed for almost 2 hours. One of the best moments in Rome.

    Begun by Emperor Hadrian in AD 135 as his own mausoleum, Castel Sant'Angelo has variously been a fortress, prison and papal residence.

    Favorite spot in Roma. This castle looks like a ship floating through the city. Its history is built by centuries adding each their own layer to make this so inspiring.

    From the romantic movie "Roman Holiday" with Gregory Peck & Audrey Hepburn until the thrilling "Angels & Demons" with Tom Hanks.

    Great for children and adults alike. Fantastic views from the terrace and the café (overlooking the Vatican). Interesting to see how the Popes augmented Hadrian's mausoleum into the fortress it now is

    A big fort that used to serve as a way of protecting the pope. Fun fact: the pope had to walk there.

    If you are a couple, rent only one audio device and share using your own ear piece (not headphones though!)! Price is 5€ per audio guide device.

    You can only get to the café inside the castle if you have a ticket for the museum. Which is quite silly actually.

    A confusing maze of a place but with good views at the top. If you're between 18-25 from the EU, its only 5 euro's entry instead of 10 but take ID.

    At the beginning of the bridge in front of the castle there was a square, which by the mid-sixteenth century had become appointed place of execution

    Appointed by Emperor Hadrian as a memorial for him & his family. Also known as "Castle of the Holy Angel." This used to be the tallest building in Rome and also used as a fortress and castle by popes.
