It is a museum and a landmark located in Rome. It was initially commissioned by the Roman Emperor Hadrian as a mausoleum in 123 AD. The Castel was once the tallest building in Rome. The structure was also used as a prison, a castle and a residence for the popes in times of danger. A covered fortified corridoror was constructed for these purposes, which connected the castle to the Vatican city. The Museum's exhibits feature Renaissance art, ceramics, antique weapons, etc. A huge spiral ramp ascends upwards.

Walked next to the Castel so can't comment on its interior, but the outside looks amazing - very imposing/dominating as a castle, and the statues on the nearby bridge add to the appeal. read full review

    Оочень долгая экскурсия. Успел поседеть и облысеть!

    На мой взгляд, лучшая смотровая площадка в Риме! Приходите вечером - справа для вас откроется чудесный вид на Ватикан!

    Аудио гид после каждого второго рассказа отправляет за подробностями в пункт 2. Который гласит: "мы, на самом деле не знаем как было, но предполагаем, что могло быть..." Короче, сказки на ночь.

    Visit later in the afternoon to get a great panoramic view of Rome under a beautiful sunset! Perfect place for a romantic walk! Have a cappuccino at the bar with fantastic views over Vatican!
