The Castel Sant'Angelo

The Castel Sant'Angelo

Originally commissioned by the Roman Emperor Hadrian as a mausoleum, the impressive monument was turned into a fortress and refuge in the 4th century and boasts a rich history. The castle sits on the bank of the Tiber river, a stone’s throw away from the Vatican City. The museum is impossible to miss and a tour of Castel Sant’Angelo is a must-do in Rome!
