Having visited the Vatican and its museums on many occasions, during a recent trip to Rome (August 2014) I opted to visit Castel S. Angelo instead. It was a great decision! Originally built as the mausoleum of Hadrian the building was later used by the popes as a fortress and castle. As you enter and follow the winding path to the upper levels of the castle, history is revealed through the layers of time. From the top of the building, once Rome's tallest building, you will have a breath taking view of the city as well as a close up view of the arch Angel Michael who tops the castle. Lovely site to visit and when I was there in August, not very touristy.

This castle was such an interesting place to visit. I was surprised I hadn't read more about this being something you "had to see" while in Rome. It was raining after we left the Vatican so we thought this would be a good place to see instead of getting rained on walking around town. Waht an incredible find! There were so many different corridors and rooms to walk through. I was amazed at how something so vast, with so many intertwined walkways and interior corridors, could be built in those times. This turned out to be one of our favorite sights on our trip. The top of the castle gives an incredible view over Rome, and it was also cool to see some of the sights from the movie "Angels & Demons".

The man who takes your money on the desk at the beginning is rude and not someone who should be serving the general public. However the castel is wonderful and a worthwhile visit.

At the very top you can see magnificent views over the whole of rome including the Vatican but all the levels are wonderful with different historic masterpieces. There is even a small cafe type area near the top where you can sit and eat or drink looking at the views.

The castle itself is spectacular and the history behind it is really interesting! The grounds are huge so it doesn't seem to get overly busy and if you're between the ages of 18 - 25 you can get in on the reduced rate for only €7 (normally €10.50). From the top of the castle you get views of Rome, the river, the Vatican and some unbeatable views of St Peter's square. Would highly recommend.
