  • The austere stone passageways of this ancient building are appropriately funereal - 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 and offers of the best rooftop views of Rome
  • Get skip the line access to the Museo Nazionale di Castel Sant'Angelo and Museo di Palazzo Venezia, with their expansive collections of art, sculptures, and more!

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 drama 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 the emperors up to Caracalla) is now one of Rome's top attractions.

Skip the line and see how this Castel changed along with Rome. As well as a mausoleum, it's also been a palace, a fortress, a prison, and the dramatic setting for Puccini's opera Tosca.

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

Your ticket also gets you into the Museo di Palazzo Venezia, with 28 rooms housing a collection of paintings, sculptures, ceramics, furniture, silverware, jewelry, tapestries, and weaponry from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. Combined with Castel Sant'Angelo, it's the perfect historical double-bill!

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.

We had skipped the line which would have cost us 30 minuted to wait, it was a great experience, the tour provided free wifi and audio guide but it required downloading an app. The app had to update which ended up doing for half the time I was in the castel. Other than that the views are amazing and there is a lot of information provided to you.

It was really worth to buy these tickets. There was a very long queue at the entrance but we could skip it and we were inside of the castle within minutes. I would recommend to everyone to buy their tickets online as it is really worth to save a lot of time.

Walked right up to the ticket counter and handed them my phone and received my tickets to enter. Could not have been easier to use. Saved about 1 hour of standing in the hot sun.

Well worth the money, better than expected. Coffee in the cafe at the top was worth it and not expensive
