This is a historical fortified castle which was originally a mausoleum.The rooms are beautifully furnished with art collection, exhibits and relics. It is not far from the Vatican with panoramic views from the terrace. A great place to enjoy lovely sunset views.

Out of all the places I visited in Rome, this was my favourite. I believe the entry fee is €15 per person but if you are from the EU and aged 18-25 you get it half price, so make sure you have some ID on...More

Visit to see beautiful views of the city. There are ofcourse floors and rooms where you can see decorations from the renaissance period. But the highlight for me was the top floor where you have a huge terrace with panoramic views of the city. Another...More

This fortress began as the tomb of Hadrian, served as the escape hatch for Pope Clement VII from Charles V troops, papal residence, and prison.The castle is connected to St Peter's Bascilica by a secret passage.

This should be on the top of your Rome vacation itinerary. Historic and very well run with signage identifying what you are viewing and how to view it efficiently. Plus the views are to die for. Don’t miss it close to sunset. There’s a cafe...More

Vatican / Borgo
Frocked priests, colorful Swiss Guards, insistent
souvenir shop owners, flag-waving tour guides, and
pilgrims from around the world. This is the Vatican
and Borgo, Rome's most recognized neighbourhood which
acts as Vatican City's front yard. Aside from the
souvenir boutiques and a few food spots, the only
business conducted here is papal. In the daytime, the
tiny medieval sector bustles with holy activity, as
