after seeing the endless que for the Basilica, we decided to DO actually something, not even 5 min waiting line, and we could get inside (with no reservations). the castle is not a big thing but nice to walk around, the view from the top is excellent, and if I had a bit more time I would have enjoyed a nice drink in the terrace, really like a movie. I would say this is really recomendable, but don't tell everyone, otherwise it will become as crowd as the other places.

After visiting the Vatican City, just a few more hundred meters you will find Castel San'Angelo. This is the cite of one of the film of Dan Brown. A remarcable site. While waking over the bridge, please pay special attention on all the Angels and what are they holding in the respective hands! If you turn right after the bridge, you will see a local market for some souvenirs.

My husband and I enjoyed Castel Sant’Angelo and the area that surrounds it. The view is unbeatable and it is a must visit for photographers. You can get some great shots of St. Peter’s, the Tiber, and Rome in general.

We visited at Easter and very much appreciated the fact that there was no queue at all to get into Castel Sant Angelo, compared to the hordes outside the Colosseum and St Peter’s. Once inside, it was fascinating to learn about all the different layers and uses of the building over its history whilst wandering around inside it. After a bit of a climb, you come out on the top of the central keep for amazing views across Rome and back towards the Vatican in particular. You exit down a dramatic walkway that once saw Hadrian’s funeral procession before being filled in for security and finally excavated for us! Definitely worth a visit - we enjoyed it immensely.
