    Great place for a leisurely, romantic walk and a picturesque setting. Plenty of proposals here, but also great views of the city and Vatican city for those with less grand plans.

    This pedestrian bridge over the Tiber has a fine view of the neighboring Vatican as well as much of the rest of the city. Unlike London and Paris, which navigable rivers, very little actually goes down the Tiber but the bridge is nice.

    Ponte Sant'Angelo: just start walking on this bridge, look forward and lean on the railing of the bridge, because when you look up you will see Castel Sant'Angelo! And then the emotion is strong, very strong!

    The Sant Angelo bridge is cuts between the Tiber River and is a connecting point from Rome to Sant Angelo Castle. The bridge was completed in 134 AD and is another lovely bridge among many in Rome.

    Ponte Sant'Angelo is the bridge across the Tiber River leading from the centre of Rome to the Castel Sant'Angelo, once Hadrian's tomb, then home to the popes, and now a museum. The most striking feature of the now pedestrian-only bridge, are the ten statues of angels which line it.

    The Ponte Sant'Angelo is by far my favorite bridge in Rome. Ten sculptures of angels line this bridge, leading to the Castel Sant'Angelo. I loved strolling across, gazing at each one, reliving the Passion as all like to do from time to time... right? No? Okay.

    Really spectacular at night...A bit of a tourist trap during the day though, particularly with hawkers and scalpers encouraging you to buy prada and gucci ripoffs, but the view is incredible. We went for an evening walk along the ponte and saw the Castel SantAngelo and the sculptures along the bridge lit up: stunning!

    The Ponte Sant'Angelo is a richly decorated pedestrian bridge across the Tiber. I've stayed a couple blocks from the bridge and would cross it in the evening looking for dinner. With all the great food I needed the exercise.

    Walking across the Ponte Sant'Angelo is like an open air sculpture gallery. The statues of angels are all individual depictions, some reputedly by Gianlorenzo Bernini, and all delightful to look at.

    The connection between Rome and Castel Sant'Angelo, the place where the Pope retired, mainly in the past, to get safe from enemies' attacks. When the weather becomes good it is full of bancarelle, painters and people selling gadgets.

    I enjoyed very much walking down this bridge, marveling at the statues of the angels on my way to visit the Castel Sant'Angelo.

    I think I took about a million pictures on this bridge. It' so beautiful and amazing that people just walk across this kind of history every day without thinking about it. I never thought that I'd enjoy staring at pillars on a bridge, but I definitely stared. I stared indeed.

Description

In a somewhat dark commission, Emperor Hadrian had architect Demetriano construct the Ponte Sant’Angelo to cross the Tiber River in order to reach his mausoleum, now the Castel Sant’Angelo. Perhaps even more morbid was the fact that executed prisoners were shown on display along the bridge during and after the 16th century. Luckily for modern visitors, the Ponte today is a lovely pedestrian bridge ... read more
adorned with angels and beautiful arches. Additionally, the bridge offers brilliant views of the Castel.
