Things to do in Castel Sant'Angelo

(207)

The National Museum of Castel Sant'Angelo can be considered at the same time a monument, an archaeological site and a museum. Inside are preserved numerous and heterogeneous collections, here merged in different historical moments. Visiting the museum, you will discover the fascinating history of the building that houses it. Built around 123 A.D. as a tomb for Emperor Hadrian and his family, Castel Sant'Angelo accompanied for almost two thousand years the fate and history of the capital. From a funerary monument to a fortified outpost, from a dark prison to a splendid Renaissance residence, from a Risorgimento prison to a museum, Castel Sant'Angelo embodies the story of the Eternal City, where past and present seem inextricably linked. Founded as a museum of war memorabilia and military, such as weapons and uniforms, in recent decades the exhibition space of Castel Sant'Angelo has been enhanced with an impressive collection of pottery (with examples dating from the fifteenth to the eighteenth century) and an interesting group of medieval and modern sculptures.

Reviews Castel Sant'Angelo

Camilla, 11 Jan 2022

“La nostra guida ci ha guidato in un viaggio nel passato, raccontandoci tante curiosità! Molto disponibile e pronto a rispondere a tutte le nostre domande! È stata una bellissima esperienza e secondo me senza guida non si riesce a comprendere a pieno l'importanza di questi luoghi. Consigliato!”

Deborah, 10 Jan 2022

“We had a fantastic time and the most enlightening experience so far of all our tours in Rome visiting the ancient sites and monuments. Aleg was not only extremely well versed in all there was to know about Castel Sant'Angelo, he was friendly engaging and fun to talk to.”

“Guida strepitosa, molto preparata ed accogliente. Luogo meraviglioso. Una giornata indimenticabile”
