One can self tour or have a guide. We chose the first and were able to get the essence of the edifice. There is also food available inside.

Saw this place and as I was several hours before my Vatican entry time I got a ticket (only had to wait five minutes in the queue). Really cool walking through this castle. And fantastic view from the top. Definitely recommend. The collections on display...More

Great historical place to visit when in Rome. Built between 134 and 139 AD for the Emperor Hadrian, it later became a fortress for popes and is now a museum. The bridge crossing the Tiber leading to the Castel is definitely worth a stop along,...More

Hadrian was originally buried here & Popes used the Castel to imprison people. Now you can tour the Castel but even better is to stroll the grounds at night & listen to various musicians & shop in quaint stalls

Such huge building, I liked it. There is a cafe on the top of the castle. It has good view to the Basilica and the river. So strongly advice everybody to visit this castle.

Great museum full of art and design, not too much queueing to get in and worth discovering more about roman history.

Be prepared for lots of steps but so very worth it. Fascinating to see the changes in the building from the Roman era to the present. Stunning views from the top and great artefacts throughout the tour. My partner got a bollocking for taking off...More

Vatican / Borgo
Frocked priests, colorful Swiss Guards, insistent
souvenir shop owners, flag-waving tour guides, and
pilgrims from around the world. This is the Vatican
and Borgo, Rome's most recognized neighborhood which
acts as Vatican City's front yard. Aside from the
souvenir boutiques and a few food spots, the only
business conducted here is papal. In the daytime, the
tiny medieval sector bustles with holy activity, as

I don't think so; you have to purchase a ticket to get in. By the way, the door where you enter is not the door where you leave.... and the exit does not go near the restrooms.
