Highlights
  • 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 countless Renaissance murals, paintings, and statues
  • Climb up to the rooftop for incredible views of Rome and beyond
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 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.

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.

Everything was ok. It is always good to skip the line even when when the line is quite short.

An interesting morning, the pre booking worked well, the bar on level 2 was very good, the views were excellent and the exhibits fascinating. My only reservation was that one of our party needed to use a walker to move around and it was a surprise to find that she was confined to level 2. That said the staff were most helpful. Peter
