Beautiful sculptures by Bernini adorn this bridge of angels. Has to be seen at night to be appreciated as the sculptures are lit as is the castle, and the view to St Peters at night is amazing.

Love, love, love this beautiful bridge decorated with angels and ironically leads to Castel Sant'Angelo which was once a prison! Very old world and romantic especially when lit up at night. Reminds me a bit of Paris. Most Italian bridges are not so ornate, but Rome is all about excess!

the angel on the castle. st. Michael, is holding a sword upright. the meaning is that he was seen in vision by the pope, in this pose. The pope interpreted the fact that the plague which was raging in the city would be stopped, and had the statue placed on top. This however is one of the angels on the internecing bridge.

The most beautiful bridge in Rome. The statues are amazing and the view of the castle (st. Angelo) is great.

As the only pedestrian only crossing this is a wonderfull place. The angels - each portraying a Passion of the Christ - gives this bridge a real charm. It is just a pity about all the informal unregistered street vendors selling their stuff on and just across the bridge.
