Address St. Angelo Bridge Ponte Sant'Angelo, 00186 Roma RM, Italy

Spanning the Tiber since the year 134, the St Angelo Bridge is one of the most famous vestiges of the reign of the emperor Hadrian, from whom it takes its name.

The St Angelo Bridge is the second structure of its kind to bear this name. The emperor had a similar structure built twelve years earlier, at the eastern end of Hadrian’s Wall in the north of England. Main access point to St. Peter’s Basilica and to the Vatican, the bridge has witnessed the upheavals of the city’s history, playing for example a great role, in spite of itself, during the sack of Rome by the lansquenets of Charles V. Adorned with magnificent statues by Antonio Raggi, Cosimo Fancelli or Ercole Ferrata, it gives access since 139 to the Castel Sant’Angelo, a museum formerly designed by Hadrian to house his remains. The bridge and the castle have inspired many artists including the composer Giacomo Puccini and the painter Camille Corot.
