How long to spend in Castel St Angelo?
It's simple to lose track of time exploring Castel Sant'Angelo's seven levels of displays and other sights. Despite this, most visitors won't stay here all day. Although some guests would just remain for an hour or so, most will stay for at least two hours.
How many steps are there in Castel Sant Angelo?
Don't pass up the chance to view the Castle after spending the day in the Vatican and St. Peter's. This is a pleasant difference from the streets and is only a short hop away. It is very walking and has not too many stairs to the summit (actually, around 270 but in stages).
Is there a dress code for Castel St Angelo?
Castel Sant'Angelo does not have a strict dress code, in contrast to the Vatican.
