Columns of angels bend their head as if to watch you cross the bridge over the river Tiber safely. You cannot help but take a photo or two! Street entertainers mingel with the tourists. A MUST on your itinery.

The ten angels that line this magnificent bridge are by the students of the famous architect and sculptor Bernini and are based on Bernini's own designs .The angels each hold symbols associated with the Crucifixion of Christ.
This was one of bernini's last large projects , called for ten angels holding instruments of the Passion.He personally only finished two Angels. which are are now in the church of Sant'Andrea delle Fratte, also in Rome.
The bridge is stunning and offers magnificent views of the Eternal City and the Vatican, if your visiting st peters or the castle make sure you cross this bridge.

The Ponte Sant’Angelo spans the Tiber and leads from the center of Rome to Hadrian’s tomb, now Castel Sant’Angelo. We walked across the ancient Ponte Sant'Angelo several times in the past and several times when we were in Rome in 2012, as it was not too far from our hotel. To tourists, it has always been a one-of-a-kind, spectacular bridge. To Romans, however, it has apparently become routine, mundane. The Bernini-inspired angel statues lining the bridge have been used by protesters to demonstrate their dissatisfaction with the increasing the air pollution in Rome when the angels were adorned with gas masks and surgical masks. The statues have also become the target of vandals who have defaced them with graffiti; the graffiti has been removed as soon as feasible. As a result, the angel statues are becoming increasingly disfigured as a result of pollution and activities of modern-day vandals. If you haven’t been to the Ponte Sant’Angelo, be sure to see this spectacular bridge before it suffers any further destruction.

It's a bridge. I love bridges. The statues are noteworthy, but the sight going from St. Peter to St. Angel Castle is glorious.

We took a quick jaunt across this bridge on the way from Saint Peter's to Piazza Navona. Had to come back a second time to spend about 45 minutes admiring and photographing the angels and the view from the bridge.
