Castles

If you want to visit a castle, you won't have to look too far.  Castles, whether they be new or old, large or small, dot the landscape of every country in Europe.  Some castles are the center tourist attractions in a city, while other are located high in the mountains or off in the fields.  Fact of the matter is, you may find castles just about anywhere and there are so many types to count.  Here are our favorites.

Our Favorites

Castel Sant' AngeloCASTEL SANT' ANGELO
Rome's Castle Sant' Angelo is a small, beautiful castle on the banks of the Tevere River located just outside of the Vatican.
