This bridge at night is truly magnificent. I proposed to my wife on this bridge at midnight when it was empty. It is a magical location.

If you stand at the edge of the bridge looking towards Castel Sant'Angelo, it is truly an inspiring vision. This Bridge Of Angels has 10 beautiful Bernini sculptures lining the edges and offers great views of St Peters Basilica and the river. A very romantic stroll at night!

You can see Castello Sant'Angelo and St. Peter's Basilica from this bridge, and the art work of angels along the bridge are very cool to see. Good strolling area either to/from the Vatican.

A great approach to the Fort with impressive sculpture and lovely views of the Tiber. Most attractive at sunset and at night.

The Ponte Sant'Angelo is the bridge across the Tiber that leads directly to the castello's main entrance. I is a very beautiful bridge with many sculptures not unlike the Charles Bridge in Prague.

If you want a perfect view of the Vatican and the Castel St Angelo, here's where you go. We were privy to seeing everything at different points in the day so we were thrilled with the variety in our shots. In addition, we were able to witness a proposal on this romantic bridge.

Lovely little bridge, the Charles Bridge in Prague is a lot lovelier. This one isn't as crowded. The castle Angelo looks lovely when seen from the farthest end of this bridge. Plenty of hawkers spoiling the ambience.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these statues on this bridge. And the views as you cross too. Just as beautiful in the day as night when it's all lit up. BEAUTIFUL!

The best place to start taking your souvenir photos of the Castello San Angelo. That is if you can dodge all the other tourists who are trying to do the same.
