St. Angelo Bridge is a famous landmark in Rome that offers stunning views and serves as a pathway to the majestic St. Angelo Castle. The bridge is adorned with beautiful angel statues and lanterns that create a charming atmosphere, particularly during sunrise and sunset. In the early morning, the bridge is virtually empty, allowing visitors to fully appreciate its beauty. However, as the day progresses, the area becomes crowded with tourists and street vendors. Despite the presence of graffiti, the bridge still retains its allure and provides a picturesque scene for photography. The bridge is over 1900 years old and is adorned with ten angel sculptures, symbolizing the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. The bridge offers a unique perspective of notable landmarks such as St. Peter's Basilica and the Basilica of Ambrose and Charles. Visitors are encouraged to explore the bridge and take in the breathtaking views, especially when the bridge's lamps and the castle's lights illuminate the surroundings at night. Overall, St. Angelo Bridge is a must-see attraction in Rome, offering a blend of historical significance and architectural beauty.
