Highlights
  • The austere stone passageways of this almost 2000-year old building may seem funereal - which makes sense as it was built as a mausoleum for Emperor Hadrian
  • It got a real makeover when it became a papal palace in the 14th century. It's adorned with plenty of Renaissance murals, paintings, and statues
  • Enjoy some of the best rooftop views of Rome and keep an eye out for two statues of the Archangel Michael that are said to guard over the building
Description

On the banks of the Tiber stands a towering cylindrical structure steeped in history; it’s a mausoleum, a monument - and a museum. Skip the line to Castel Sant'Angelo and step back into the unfolding of Rome's history. Plus, get amazing rooftop views of the Eternal City!

A visit to Castel Sant'Angelo is an incredible journey into Rome's history. What once housed the remains of Emperor Hadrian and his family (and the emperors up to Caracalla in the 2nd century) is now one of Rome's top attractions.

Skip the line and see for yourself how this Castel changed along with Rome. It's been a fortress for the Popes to hide out in times of trouble. It's also been a palace, a prison, and the dramatic setting for Puccini's opera Tosca.

The downstairs part is cold and cramped, but the upper floors are a whole different story. Check out the lavishly decorated Renaissance interiors (look up for the murals!), and the Museo Nazionale di Castel Sant'Angelo with its collection of art and military memorabilia.

Insider tip

There's a great shady park (Parco Adriano) just behind the Castel. It's got swings and a playground, surrounded by ancient cypress trees. It's a good place to come and relax in the shade, before your next adventure.

Er was geen lijn toen wij dit bezochten dus skip-the-line was hier volgens mij overbodig maar ik heb gehoord dat dit op andere momenten wel nodig kan zijn dus hangt af van dag tot dag en van uur tot uur.

Lo mejor que tiene el monumento son las vistas.
Solo recomendaría a alguien visitar este monumento si le sobra mucho tiempo.
Es de lo más flojo de Roma.

We arrived around midday and I'd estimate the queue was an hour long but we walked straight in. Well worth booking online.
