Don’t be fooled by the name—Rome's Castel Sant'Angelo was built as a tomb, not a castle. Commissioned by emperor Hadrian in AD 139, this imposing cylindrical mausoleum held the ashes of Hadrian and subsequent Roman emperors until becoming a fortress in AD 401. In the 14th century, a fortified corridor between the castle and St. Peter’s Basilica was built, and it became a papal residence. Today, it’s home to the Castel Sant'Angelo National Museum (Museo Nazionale di Castel Sant'Angelo) and its collection of art, archaeological finds, and weaponry.

What are people saying about Castel Sant'Angelo National Museum (Museo Nazionale di Castel Sant'Angelo)

So much history, very interesting, well worth it
Our tour guide Valeria was amazing. We signed up for a group tour but it turned out no one else signed up and we had a private tour! Valeria was incredibly knowledgeable about so much history regarding the Castel Sant'Angelo. So many details and interesting facts we wouldn't have learned about. It made the tour so interesting. 100x better than just wandering around on our own. Loved it!

The Castel was amazing...
The Castel was amazing and I had a wonderful time exploring the rooms and the view from the terrace. Migo, the host who I met to receive my ticket, surprised me with the information he presented.

Great experience
Would be good to have a guided tour. As history in such places is good 👍. Saved a little of time queuing

Castle experience
Castle was very beautiful and the audio tour was very informative and helpful, but the directions on where to go and how to get to the next place was less than helpful. Glad we had some time do walk certain areas more than once.
