The Vatican City and Castel Sant’Angelo

The Vatican City

Many tourists came to visit this place and it took us 1 hour standing in the line – well one hour was really priceless since we could see the beautiful basilica with its magnificent architectures.  It’s a free entrance but in case you wish to skip the line – you can contact a guide there for helping you to get in fast but I don’t know how much they will charge you. For us, we went in the morning around 9.00 am but actually many people were waiting there already. Well, I missed a chance to visit their amazing museum because I was in rush.

The Castel Sant’ Angelo (Castle St. Angel)

The Castel Sant’Angelo is near to the Basilica of St. Peter so it’s a good to visit all these places. From the top of the castle, you can also be able to take many beautiful photos and the entrance ticket is 7 €.

The castel was built during in 123-139 A.D. and the bridge was built in 130 A.D.

Well, beside the stairs – they also had this one too. I felt amazed with this walking way.
