    This place is like a labyrinth, we spent too much time going in circles. Make sure you have a coffee at the bar overlooking Vatican, such an amazing view.

    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.

    There is a cafe serving drinks on the upper floor if you get tired or hot from the walking.

    Such an amazing place to visit! Please set aside 4 hours or more. It is also open until midnight and can be fun to explore in the dark!

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

    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.

    Spectacular view with a nice rooftop cafe.

    A very long queue to enter, ticket office only takes cash, Archeologia and Capitolini cards are not valid here - Roma Pass only :(

    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

    Great views, the bar has from burgers to smoothies. Although we didn't dare to even look at the prices. I still don't know if the 15€ entrance was worth it.

    A nice museum and a great example of architecture with a nice set of scenic views over Rome.

    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.

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

    Great scenic 270 degrees views of the city up top. The walk up and around the elevated castle is worth it, but don't get too carried away taking photos, because each level brings an even better view.
