A view of the St. Peter’s Dome from the St. Angelo castle. A funny anecdote from the Castle wasn’t so funny back then. If you buy a Rome Pass which serves as a ticket for Rome’s public transportation (which you do want to use in Rome) and some of the Rome’s museums, you also get to skip the lines for the first two museums/attractions you visit (clearly stated on the Pass and at the entrance to the museums). St. Angelo’s Castle was our first attraction since that’s where we picked up our Rome Passes and we decided to check it out and skip the line. However, someone didn’t like that we skipped the line even though we held passes so everyone can see it. This person(s?) threw water on us. Luckily, there was a guard who jumped from his seat and started yelling.
To avoid crowds and thousands of tourists from all over the world, we returned to St. Peter’s square in the evenings as well.
