About Biblioteca Angelica, Rome

The Angelica Library (Italian: Biblioteca Angelica) is in Rome, Italy. It is a public library located in the Piazza Sant'Agostino square, next to the church of Sant'Agostino, not far from Piazza Navona.

  • An old Library Italians use that they will let you peep at. Interesting interior that's fun to see, like a mediocre (for Rome) Church, but happily, for a change, not a Church, and with the refreshing decoration of walls full of mysterious old tomes instead of pious Saints. Plus, what are all those people at the tables studying? At a glance this library does not carry any books published after 1850 or so. I wish my library had a bit of this. We've stopped carrying anything published before 2012. Very much not worth a trip of any kind, and yet totally worth the five minutes if you just happen to be passing by (and Caravaggio fans might as it's next to Church of St. Augustine with its Madonna of the Pilgrims).

  • As a tourist, happy we came to check it out and came early. We were only tourists there at 9am. Won't take you more than five minutes to peek in and wonder what all those super old books are about!

  • Beautiful and worth seeing. However, if you need to use internet, do not come here, there is only one computer available and the wifi, even though it says its public, you will not be given the access code to it. Also the lady who worked the closing shift was incredibly rude, unlike the man in the front desk who was helpful and always showed a great attitude.

  • Nice ancient atmosphere. 👌

  • Astonished that someone else left such a negative review for the staff's ability in foreign languages! I agree that the staff may not necessarily be the best, but the library is absolutely stunning. If I had to pinpoint a negative side, then it's the amount of noisy tourists visiting the main room who never show respect for the obvious library behaviour code.
