Description of your booking
By booking admission to Castel Sant'Angelo, you can visit the Castle, admire its interior, and enjoy the magnificent views of Rome from its towering ramparts overlooking the Tiber.
This ticket includes admission to the National Museum of Castel Sant'Angelo, as follows: 1 single admission to the National Museum of Castel Sant'Angelo during the time printed on the voucher.
Castel Sant'Angelo was built around 123 A.D. as a mausoleum for Emperor Hadrian and his family.
Unlike other Roman-era monuments, the Castle was never reduced to ruins by being into a quarry for material to build newer buildings. It did, however, go through a number of transformations over the centuries to reach its current form.
Over its history, the Castle has served many functions: an imperial tomb, a fortified outpost, a prison, and a noble Renaissance home.
The current architectural structure has massive walls, inside of which visitors enjoy the sumptuous frescoed rooms in which the invaluable collections of paintings and artifacts are kept in addition to many temporary exhibitions put on at the Castle throughout the year.
