A serious Roman landmark, the Castel Sant'Angelo is also fun to visit. Peep inside at historical artifacts or see if you can get an invite to one of the events and performances held on the roof.

Castel Sant'Angelo is by far the most worthwhile attraction requiring a ticket in Rome. Not only do you get to see an ancient fortress-castle, you get beautiful views of the city and access to an art exhibition at the very top. Last but not least, you get to burn some calories. Those unable to walk well should heed this warning: There are PLENTY of stairs here.

The Mausoleum of Hadrian, usually known as the Castel Sant'Angelo, is a towering cylindrical building in Rome. It was initially commissioned by the Roman Emperor Hadrian as a mausoleum for himself and his family. The building was later used by the popes as a fortress and castle, and is now a museum. It offers lovely views over Rome, the Tiber and the Vatican, and there is a pleasant cafe on one of the upper levels.

Of course, we had to visit the Sant’ Angelo Castle after reading Dan Brown’s “Angels and Demons”. A few interesting points about this site:
- Great views of the Vatican and Rome (worth coming just for that)
- A walkway built into a wall connects Vatican with the Castle, meant to be used as an escape route or for special communication; you can see it very well from the castle
- Nice café at the top (and restroom facilities) but pretty expensive – well worth a drink or coffee, so you can relax a bit and enjoy the views.

Come here for the view. You can climb to the top of this circular structure and get a fantastic view of the city. It's also fun to wander around the nooks and crannies of this ancient castle - they have done little to "fix it up" (at least it looks that way), which makes it all the more authentic.

Castel Sant'Angelo is located right next to the Vatican City. It's a castle and fortress, so when you walk around the dimly lit place, you get the sense what it was like to live in ancient era Rome.Recommended for:History Buffs
