The castle terrace offers some of the best views of Rome. We visited the St.Peter's cathedral dome in the morning and were disappointed with the view with the exception of Vatican just below it. Castello Sant'Angelo offers a good panoramic view of both St.Peter and some sights of the historic center of Rome (at a distance). I suppose view from the Monument of Vittorio Emmanuelle could be better due to it's proximity to the main historical sites.
With the exception of Hadrian's mausoleum (including the ramp) which was impressive, the rest of the castle (PApal Apartments) is just OK.
Small cafe on the lower terrace.
Entry price 10 EUR
