Why to visit Castle Sant'angelo

In different eras of history, Castel Sant'Angelo, commonly known as Hadrian's Mausoleum, has served as a castle, a mausoleum, a hideaway, and a museum. This cylindrical structure, located in the Parco Adriano area of Rome's capital city, is one of the country's most recognised attractions. The structure has seen the development of this vast empire and has been a part of Roman history for various purposes.

A spiral ramp leads to the top of the monument, which has five stories. On the first floor, there is a lengthy hall with the ashes of the empire's great emperors who died in conflicts while serving the empire. There are additional chambers that have served as prisons for various governmental foes. As we ascend the monument's top floors, we are greeted by a stunning display of paintings and frescoes by some of the best painters of the time, many of which have been preserved for generations. There is also a display of numerous weaponry that were used in some of Europe's most famous conflicts.

Special Tip

It is recommended that you book the tour online through multiple firms because the lines may grow rather long.
