Really fabulous bridge that leads to the castle. It has very impressive statues all along, especially if you love a bit of sculpture. Lovely views.

Fantastic bridge that leads up to Castel St'Angelo. Flanked by amazing monuments, each one different it really is a photographers heaven. From the bridge you get a great view of St. Peter's Basillica and Tiber river.

Many teens and millennials taking selfies. This is not really my scene and so a decided lack of appreciation... maybe take a walk down by the Tiber. On a positive not, it does offer a direct path from the east side to the west and vice versa.

I know, I know. This bridge is probably an architecture landmark and speciality and so on... But I just dont enjoy sculptures so much so for me the bridge was just not so memorable. A great view of st. Angel's castle behind the bridge though.

I love this bridge, its pedestrianised so its great to just relax on and enjoy the view. This bridge is lovely late at night when there aren't many people around and the castle and statues on the bridge are lit up.

Whether the view of the Castle or the Basilica of St. Peter`s this is the bridge to beat all bridges in Rome. The statues of the angels holding the instruments of Christ`s Passion make this a special route for all the religious pilgrims to the city on their way to the Vatican

Very nicely decorated pedestrian only bridge just next to Castle of Saint Angelo. Good place to take very nice photos and quite romantic.

I never miss to be amazed at how beautifully the instruments of the Passion are portrayed through the statues of the Angels. I would recommend you read up a little about the angels so that you can recognise their distinctive characteristics, eg Angel with the whips and Angel with the garment and dice. The statues are beautifully carved and many... More

The Ponte Sant'Angelo (Holy Angel's Bridge) is a must see of a Roman. A great specimen of Renaissance era abundance, the bridge does also provide you with great views and photo perspectives on Tiber river, St. Peter's, and Sant'Angelo castle.

If you want an excellent photo to take home from your visit to Rome, the Pont Sant'Angelo bridge is a great place to go. Best time is sunset, dawn or nighttime. Lots of different reflections and angles to work with. Enjoy it.
