Top ways to experience Museo Nazionale di Castel Sant'Angelo
The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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 visitors vie for elbow room, or stand in line for a visit. Once the sun sets, the neighbourhood is transformed into a quiet and picturesque hamlet.

This site is well preserved and unlike everything else most people do in Rome so I highly recommend. Depending on when you go, many of the rooms might be blocked off but it is still worth a trip.

We weren't sure what to expect and were happily surprised. Its long history is slowly revealed as one goes further up in the castle. The whole experience was very interesting and of course, the view from the top is stunning.

Reserved for 16:30 to 18:00, its 17:05 and I'm still waiting in the thunderstorm in front of the bulding along with the 50 other people. It actually says IN 16:30 OUT 18:00 so I'm eager how to see how they want to handle the OUT 18:00 part.

Buy a ticket on line ahead of time. Actually not much to see inside but the view from top is the best view of Rome. Don't go in thinking you'll see and learn a lot from this museum. If you decide not to go you are not missing much. We ran out of stuff to do so we went.

We recommend that one gets lots of masks (to ward off bad smell from Tiber river) and view this fort from outside. There are better documentaries o. youTube. That is more informative than going in here. Exorbitant price to get inside.
