Nice three story palace right next to Termini Station. Lovely sculptures and frescoes recovered from dozens of sites around Rome.

Excellent trip. A lot of walking. Historic places that take your mind to fly to the ancient times. The Roman Museum is a very interested place, we enjoyed it a lot.

Wonderful collection of ancient Roman statuary with accompanying text noting how Roman sculptors copied Greek statues. It's worth seeing the top two floors. One highlight is busts of Marcus Aurelius and Hadrian.
