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 were able to wander around unaided and not crowded. Very interesting History and ofcourse Tosca is mentioned often especially on Th roof where she jumps to her death.

Surely a five star place. Perhaps the most iconic in Rome? To be honest, Rome has so many iconic places that I lost the count... Anyway, near to. Vetican, great bridges.. Simply outstanding...
Greater sight from the outside, I hope the pictures make sense of the very nice place this is. The architecture is different from other landmarks as it was intended for a different purpose in the religious history. Prepare to walk a lot. I would recommend the walking tour if possible.
This huge Castle is definitely worth a visit. Even though I did not go in (entrance fee = 15EU), I still loved the outside area and the little park next to it. When you go inside, it is recommended to go before sunrise, as the sunrise view on top of the terrace should be lovely.
Great place to visit with spectacular views all around Rome. Interesting artefacts and some Papal history to see. Some of the rooms are stunning. There are a lot of stairs so people with mobility issues may struggle although there is a lift to the second level which can be used on request. This does mean that you will lose out on the top terrace which provides the best views. All the staff were extremely helpful and kind.
A fine visit. The best thing about this castle is the view you get once you're on the top floor.
