Hadrian was originally buried here & Popes used the Castel to imprison people. Now you can tour the Castel but even better is to stroll the grounds at night & listen to various musicians & shop in quaint stalls

Such huge building, I liked it. There is a cafe on the top of the castle. It has good view to the Basilica and the river. So strongly advice everybody to visit this castle.

Great museum full of art and design, not too much queueing to get in and worth discovering more about roman history.

I don't think this site was worth the admission fee. It held very little interest for us. Not a lot to see.

We were favorably impressed with the Castel once inside...we did not know its history including with Papal Apartments. It had very easy steps to walk up and nice signage to follow. Some rooms were simply beautiful--still. The collection of armor and weapons was also neat....More

The castle has an interesting back story, and a few rooms to take a look at. The small bar/restaurant at the top looked to have great views, but we could not get a seat. The view from the top of the castle is great. This...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

I don't think so; you have to purchase a ticket to get in. By the way, the door where you enter is not the door where you leave.... and the exit does not go near the restrooms.
