This castle was close to our hotel. We walked by it several times and finally decided to go in. Glad we did. The building history is fascinating. There are excellent markers describing the various eras of use. There was a museum exhibition of armor which...More

There are loads of people standing around outside this place taking photos, but the inside is pretty great too. If you're using the Roma Pass you can get in for free (if it's your first museum) or you get a discounted ticket (50% off!). This...More

This is a very nice place in close vicinity to Vatican city. One can walk down from there and come visit this place. The architecture is very old and beautiful and a bridge connects to the other side across the river. A very picturesque landscape...More

We toured the Castel Sant Angelo and were happy to find that you can get all the way inside, albeit in a circular fashion! It is really something to gradually go from a fortress/dungeon atmosphere, to an interior courtyard that looks like a small town...More

Mixed experience. The interior of the castle was underwhelming and I feel the museum side of things wasn't done as well as it could have been (many empty rooms, cordoned off sections); however I was hungover so this did alter my level of interest. Wonderful...More

Worth visiting for both its history and the magnificent views offered from the summit of the castel. A fabulous building definitely worth visiting whilst in Rome

Vatican / Borgo
Frocked priests, colorful Swiss Guards, insistent
souvenir shop owners, flag-waving tour guides, and
pilgrims from around the world. This is the Vatican
and Borgo, Rome's most recognized neighbourhood which
acts as Vatican City's front yard. Aside from the
souvenir boutiques and a few food spots, the only
business conducted here is papal. In the daytime, the
tiny medieval sector bustles with holy activity, as

We didn’t tour inside the Castel as there was an event going on. Maybe check their website. Maybe your hotel can hold your luggage after checkout while you tour and then pick up later? Sorry this isn’t much help.
