How to Reach Castel Sant Angelo

The beautiful mausoleum of Castel Sant'angelo is must-visit Roman monument. It is of great significance to Roman history and has been used as a fortress, castle, and a prison. Today, it functions as a museum and is a great place to learn about Roman history and the Renaissance period. Even after years of looting, Castel Sant'angelo is very beautifully preserved. In this article, you will learn about how to reach Castel Sant'angelo for your vacation.  

Best way to visit

The Vatican City is a small city and the lanes are narrow. Walking to the monument is the best way to reach. It is located at a distance of 1.6 km from Vatican City, which takes barely 20 minutes to cover. The museum opens at 9am in the morning, so you better reach there early in the morning. Buses run continuously to and fro Termini and Vatican City with the museum as a stop. The closest metro is Lepanto Linea A. Take bus number 40 from there or walk.

Buses to Castel Sant'angelo

Buses 62, 23, 271, 982, 280 from Piazza Pia stop, bus number 40 from Piazza Pia, the final stop, 64, 46 from Santo Spirito stop, and buses 49, 87, 926, 990 from Piazza Cavour, final stop-Via Crescenzio stop all will take you to Castel Sant'angelo. It barely takes five minutes to reach the museum.

Travelling by car

Castel Sant'angelo doesn’t fall under Rome’s restricted area, so you can hire a taxi or a rental car and there’s enough parking in the Prati neighbourhood. The parking area is just 200 meters from the museum. Parking is free, so beware of people charging you any money.

Ticket costs

Tickets for entry into the museum are priced differently for Europeans and those from around the world. Europeans are charged € 7.50 while others being charged €10.50, excluding taxes and other surcharges. The ticket window opens at 9am and closes at 6.30pm. It will take you around two hours to roam the entire museum, so be there on time.

Entry is free first Sunday of every month. You can also book your ticket online to ditch the long queue at just a pound extra. During the summers, many events and performances are scheduled at the museum. If you are there during that time, definitely go to watch one.
