  • Whereas all costs involving the activities of Rome, well choose the day since there is a free day. I went that day to first hour and spend the morning touring the Castle, full of history, with great views and exhibition halls. If you are interested the story is worthwhile.

  • I was staying close to him. Third visit to Rome and had not yet visited. Pretty much, you have a lovely view of the city.

  • The object itself is worthy of a visit, a corridor associated with the Vatican, the mouth directly from the street Via Conciliacione over the Tiber River, the bridge is decorated with statues of angels on both sides, attractive place

  • A place of many great hours spent there and a surprise restaurant on the upper level, where they sell great food.
  • Stunning rooms, stunning view and museum. A bit pricy, but well worth the money.
  • Ok museum, small and crowded, nice views from the top.
  • Beautiful in night time.
  • Very poor care of responsible for the Rome Pass tickets. We tried in very bad way, a large group, because we did not understand the instructions for use of the pass, handwritten on paper on access. Very bad image to a beautiful place, which I could not see by this lady. Round 14-hour day, July 13, 2017
