Castel Sant'Angelo

An iconic cylindrical fortress in Rome, originally commissioned by Emperor Hadrian as a mausoleum, later transformed into a papal fortress and museum.

Tips from the community

This iconic mausoleum is one most will recognise because it's one of the most photographed places in the city. It’s so large you can take photos of it from any number of different locations; banks of the Tiber, Ponte Sant’Angelo and Ponte are three of the best.
