Castel San Angelo in Rome, Italy
As you head towards the Vatican side of the river, it’s worthwhile to stop at the Castel San Angelo. Originally begun as a tomb, this structure has been transformed over the centuries. It became a fortress in the Middle Ages, and a safe place for the Pope to hide when needed, situated as it is just down the street from the Vatican. Enjoy the various viewpoints from the Castle looking out across Rome, across the Tiber, and towards St. Peter’s and the Vatican.
