   The Tiber is the main river of Rome.  The mausoleum of Emperor Hadrian was erected on its banks between 135 and 139 AD, housing not only his own remains but those of succeeding Roman emperors until early in the next century.  The building was variously looted or repurposed over the years, ultimately converted into the fortress now known as the Castel Sant'Angelo - the Pont Sant'Angelo bridge connects it with the opposite bank.
