What travelers are saying
- We walked here as there was no convenient metro stop close by. There may be a city bus route...? Afterwards we had access to a hop on / hop off bus that had a stop just across the Tiber.
We arrived here around 4 p.m. as this was a covered stop on our city pass. A bit earlier, a company rep at the Pantheon had called ahead to put us on the list for this site (it hadn't seemed like it required an advance reservation, but it might be worth checking on). We crossed the bridge over the Tiber that leads directly to Castel Sant'Angelo. The statuary on the bridge is worth checking out, and the view of the castle is great for photos as you approach.
We made it to the entrance, but didn't initially see a company rep with an orange umbrella, as expected. However, we turned around and found her off to the side next to the river. We then had to negotiate the ticket-generation process. She apparently wanted to use a couple of messaging apps that none of us had. In the end, she just kept the tickets on her on phone and escorted us in so that she could show / explain to the staff that we should be admitted. It seems like there could be a better way than this, but it worked...
The main draw here turned out to be the views from the top. The architecture is interesting - this began as Hadrian's tomb and originally multiple emperors' ashes were stored here. Then it evolved into a papal fortress and treasury. Most of the artifacts have been removed, so what you are left with is a formidable building without much inside. Don't expect galleries of statues, artwork, etc. There are a few exhibits here and there along your ascent.
The only elevator was for staff only. You first walk most of the way around the circular base and then begin your ascent. You climb a long ramp, which leads to another ramp that traverses the center of the building. You eventually exit out onto a series of terraces and continue climbing stairs. At one point there is a small restaurant / bar with some nice views, but we were not yet hungry. You eventually come out onto a rectangular space close to the top of the castle. From here you have nice views of the city in 3 directions (the 4th is blocked by some remaining structure of the castle). We were fortunate enough to visit a bit before sunset, so the views were enhanced by the late afternoon lighting. It got a bit crowded here, but with a bit of patience it wasn't hard to get to whatever area of the perimeter you wanted for photos.
This is definitely worth a stop, as long as you know what to expect at the outset. It is close to the Vatican, so you may want to combine visiting both on the same day (we did not).Written November 24, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Just passing by I was struck by this great majestic and somptuous architecture.
I am not sure one can enter and visit this Justice place but I guess inside might be at least as gorgeous as the front of the building in great neo classic styleWritten December 20, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- We liked our walk along the tiber/lungotevere in the shadow of the old trees. Watch your step, because "sidewalks" are dangerous in some places.
Some good options for picture taking ... (bridges, castel San Angelo ...).Written August 15, 2023
- The beauty and greenery in this plaza is worthy of a generous half-hour stroll if you have time on your Roman trip. As a wheelchair user, however, I had the hardest time finding curb cuts to get on and off the street…accessibility wasn’t as well thought-out as other parts of Rome. Despite this, the plaza is clean and safe, and I recommend it.Written June 20, 2023
- I loved this street which was my daily commute to walk through it. It has all needs and all the stores for daily quick requirements.Written January 27, 2021
- The statue impresses you with how it was made and how imposing it is. If I were to make a ranking of the three most interesting things to see in Rome these would be - the Vatican Museum, the Colosseum and the Sant'Angelo Castle.Written December 8, 2019
- Interesting para military experience. Some nice Fascist era art. Found this museum with limited hour while waiting for my entry into the Vatican Museums.Written November 24, 2023
- Located just around the corner from the Supreme Court and opposite the Tiber.
Looks very pretty from the outside.Written August 28, 2019
- A beautiful bridge in itself but also the place where you can have a nice shoot of sundown over St Peter, very popular.Written October 30, 2022
- Prices looked acceptable for me. Personnel was kind of busy, even though there were not so many people, so we had to wait like 10 minutes for someone to come to us, but eventually they did reccoment a good vine for a good price, the guy was very friendly.
The place is near Vatican and Castle di Angelo, you can also eat here.Written September 15, 2018
- We both had pizza and they were amazing. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. I would definitely recommend if you are in the area.Written July 26, 2023
- Pleased to stumble on the Roman interpretation of a classic dive bar. Rowdy young crowd filled the space with spirit. Great cocktails and attentive staff.Written November 27, 2023
- It's a must to visit this Square for all the soccer supporters of the world.
Piazza della Libertà (Freedom Square) Is the Place where was born on January 9th 1900, the S.S. LAZIO, the first football club of Rome, the club that brought the "Calcio" in Rome.
If you visit the Aeternal City in this day, do not miss to partecipate at the birthday party, that every year is celebrate by the original fans of the "biancocelesti supporters", with fireworks, songs and beer...
