Full description

Discover the history of this mausoleum-turned-museum with skip-the-line, hosted access. Located on the right bank of the Tiber only a short distance from the Vatican City, the Castel Sant'Angelo is an ancient fortress with centuries of history. Explore the museum's seven floors to discover an extensive collection of ancient artifacts and perfectly preserved frescoes from the Renaissance period. Built in 135 AD for the Roman Emperor Hadrian, the building has played an important part in Rome’s architectural history. Climb the spiral staircase to reach the Chamber of Ashes where a number of historical figures were incarcerated, before continuing up to visit the Papal Residence. Immerse yourself in the stories of each different room as you admire the art within. Finish your experience with a panoramic view over Rome and the River Tiber from the castle terrace. A great opportunity to take some photos of the Ponte Sant'Angelo bridge, also known as the Bridge of Angels.

Right at the appointed time and following the instructions of the reservation where we had to go to validate the tickets, the super friendly girl, very nice and with an exquisite experience, especially when it came to answering any questions. Once inside, the visit to the castle, very beautiful, and with beautiful views. I recommend it.

Well, we expected more from the Castel Sant'Angelo. The woman who got the reserved tickets was friendly. But just because you don't have to queue at the ticket office (which was empty, by the way), to pay double the ticket price and then stand at the entrance with many others who had also reserved beforehand, really isn't worth it.

So fascinating especially the models of the castel over the years. Loved the large sculpture of Michael the Archangel and the twelve angel statues along the bridge leading to the fortress. There was a seagull that had his photograph taken numerous times by tourists as he posed with the arched bridges over the Tiber and Roma in the background. He was an asset to Castel San Angelo!
