Covers on both sides of the embankment Lungotevere Castello, Lungotevere degli Altoviti and Lungotevere Tor di Nona.

Originally built by order of the Roman emperor Hadrian as a mausoleum, as well as a tomb for other emperors, the last of which was buried by Caracalla,
A very interesting ancient castle, maybe even the best in Rome, while you go to it across the bridge,
there are very beautiful sculptures along the way, I advise you to visit this place for sure.
The bridge Ponte Sant'Angelo is also very beautiful, in the morning there are not many people, the Vatican is nearby.
