View of the Vatican from Castel Sant'Angelo

The Castel Sant'Angelo was built in the second century by the Emperor Hadrian. It was later turned into a war fortification, and then a prison. It is where Tosca leaps to her death in the opera Tosca. You can climb to the top and have a clear view of the Vatican.
