“A mausoleum, a fortress, a prison and finally a museum… Rome offers an abundance of monuments and sights rich in history, stories and legends, but Castel Sant’Angelo is one which truly encompasses the essence of the city’s transformation throughout the centuries. It was first built between 123 and 139 AD to serve as the mausoleum of the Roman emperor, Hadrian, and his family. Then, it became a military building, which in 403 would be integrated to the Aurelian Walls. In the 14th century, Castel Sant’Angelo took on the role of a military fortress connected to the Vatican through an elevated passageway which still exists today, “Passetto di Borgo”. It was later used as a prison; a place where executions were carried out and where prisoners were left to starve. In 1901, it became a wonderfully rich museum which harbors relics of its tumultuous past. Today, it graces the Roman skyline with its golden lights, and is visited by many during their stay in Rome.”

“If you prefer modern and contemporary art, I recommend this museum built in the 2000s and dedicated to contemporaries. The MAXXI, National Museum of XXI Century Arts in Rome, designed by the architect Zaha Hadid and managed by the MAXXI Foundation of the Ministry of Cultural Heritage. A little far from my home but worth it. There are buses that take you right there.”

The museums house one of Italy's finest collections of classical sculpture as well as ancient frescoes and paintings by artists such as Caravaggio, Bernini and Tiziano.”

“The villa was built by Roman Emperor Hadrian at the foot of the Tiburtine Hills between 118 and 138 AD. It is one of the best kept and most visited archaeological sites in Italy. This is why it has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1999.”

Church
“I must say one day is very insufficient to see all the items displayed in different museums and collected from various places over centuries. You will be overwhelmed to see the marvel of Michelangelo on the ceiling and alter of the Sistine Chapel situated within Vertican. The Creation of Adam and Last judgement -- iconic frescoes will make you speechless. You are not allowed to take photographs within Sistine Chapel. In any case, you will have plenty of opportunities to take photos. You will see St. Peter's Basilica regarded as one of the holiest Catholic shrines. It is the most prominent building in the Vatican City. Its dome is a dominant feature of the skyline of Rome. Probably the largest church in Christendom. There is tremendous rush of people to visit Vertican during this time of the year. We advise you to get skip the line ticket (though it is very expensive), otherwise it may take 2-3 hours to enter only. Keep in mind that you have to walk for 3-4 hours only to see major attractions only. Please enquire whether admission to Raphael Museum is included in the ticket or not.”

“For most travelers, touring the Vatican is a one-day trip, and that’s exactly what we suggest, using a whole day for it. In addition, we highly recommend signing on to a good guided tour to the Vatican. This will not only help you navigate the maze of the Vatican Museums (and make sure you don’t miss any of the truly important stuff), but also help you understand the context of what you’re seeing as well.”
