Museo Nazionale di Castel Sant'Angelo reviews
very interesting and very informative. did have to queue to get in but was worth the wait for the castle and the views more »
Reserved for 16:30 to 18:00, its 17:05 and I'm still waiting in the thunderstorm in front of the bulding along with the 50 other people. It actually says IN 16:30 OUT 18:00 so I'm eager how to see... more »
Surely a five star place. Perhaps the most iconic in Rome? To be honest, Rome has so many iconic places that I lost the count... Anyway, near to. Vetican, great bridges.. Simply outstanding...
Greater sight from the outside, I hope the pictures make sense of the very nice place this is. The architecture is different from other landmarks as it was intended for a different purpose in the religious history. Prepare to walk a lot. I would recommend the walking tour if possible.
