This statue is at the highest point on Castel Sant’Angelo and is a large bronze statue that was installed in 1753. It must be seen from the Courtyard of Honor. This area also affords great views of Rome and Vatican City.

Located on the top of the castle is this huge statue/monument of/to the Arc Angel St Michael, definetly worth the effort to get to the top, to see the true size of him, and the views are stunning.

Saint Michael statue stands atop Castle Sant’Angelo. The entire site is a museum with many lookouts. With children, you can walk around with ease. Boys always love the idea of being knights fighting with swords! A must see while in Rome!

Statua di San Michele Arcangelo is on top of a huge castle, the Castel Sant' Angelo, and can be seen from far away. It's bronze and worth seeing at least once.

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
