Castel Sant'Angelo

My rating:

The positives:

This place is magnificent enough to take your breath away. Castel Sant’Angelo may be brown and grey on the outside, but the ornate rooms and spectacular paintings on the walls are bursting with colour on the inside. The viewing platform is a definite highlight. In fact, it would be worth visiting Castel Sant’Angelo for that view alone.

The neagtives:

More thought could have been put into the information provided. The text on the boards is only in English and Italian, which is a shame for anyone who speaks a different language. The audio guide may be free, but you have to bring your headphones and have enough storage space on your smartphone to download the app.


The queues can get pretty long in the summer months, so buy an online ticket in advance if you don’t fancy waiting around.
Be sure to stop for a drink in the café here because the view of the city and Saint Peter’s Basilica in particular is incredible.
