images from Castel Sant'Angelo

The Castel Sant'Angelo has always intrigued me. The first couple of times I visited Rome, I never had enough time to visit the Castel Sant'Angelo. This past summer, I finally spent a wonderful Saturday afternoon inside this mysterious castle. The admission was 5 euros. Here are some images from my visit.

Oh How lucky! I've never got in there, but have only just walked past and driven by. It is my top place on my list for Rome. If I go back with my son I'll go there first. :)
