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.

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!

A beautiful castle to explore. We went at 9am and were on of the first ones in, beating the crowds. I suggest doing the castle and Vatican in the same day as they are so close together. There is a cafe at the top with wonderful views of Rome and toilets throughout. Tickets were cheaper to purchase when you get there than online - €12 each. However, you do have guaranteed entry and skip the queue for tickets.

The tours themselves are really great, the organization leaves something to be desired. We first had to get a ticket to the Castel Sant'Angelo, then to the Vatican for the bus tour where you stood around in different places for ages until it started and then again Engelsburg. In the end, the day is actually over. Nevertheless, the bus tour in the Vatican Gardens was very nice, you should sit on the bus on the left, you can see more there. Nowhere else can you see so many different plants. The Castel Sant'Angelo was also ok, especially the view from the top or from the coffee.
