Ponte Sant'Angelo

Ponte Sant'Angelo is one of Rome's most iconic and historic bridges. Spanning the Tiber River, this magnificent bridge is particularly famous for its angel statues and forms one of the city's most photogenic spots. The bridge's origins date back to the era of Roman Emperor Hadrian and was initially constructed to provide access to Hadrian's Mausoleum (now Castel Sant'Angelo).


The bridge is adorned with ten angel statues designed by Baroque artist Gian Lorenzo Bernini. Each angel holds a different object symbolizing the Passion of Christ. These statues add a unique aesthetic and spiritual depth to the bridge with their incredible details and expressions. Visitors have the opportunity to closely observe these artworks as they walk across the bridge.


Ponte Sant'Angelo also offers stunning views. Looking towards Castel Sant'Angelo, the Tiber River, and the historic center of Rome from the bridge, you can observe the enchanting silhouette of the city. Especially at sunset, the bridge and its surroundings provide a perfect backdrop for unforgettable photographs.


The bridge holds a significant place in the history of Rome and has witnessed many events over the centuries. Today, it is a popular meeting spot for both locals and tourists. Walks on the bridge offer a unique experience to explore Rome's history, art, and beauty.


Ponte Sant'Angelo presents a different perspective on Rome's history and cultural richness, being both a historical and aesthetic attraction. This historic bridge offers an unforgettable experience, conveying the city's art and spiritual atmosphere to the modern world.
