If this museum were located anywhere other than Rome, it would be a destination onto its own. But given the number of world class museums in this city, this is a place most have never heard of. Truly a stellar collection mainly of Roman sculpture....More

Fantastic museum with some amazing pieces. It's easy to miss it while blinded by the rest of Romes splendor but we highly recommend a visit. The atmosphere was calm and it was a nice contrast to some of the other places we visited

There is a rooftop cafe with incredible views of the city. There is also a great spot to view Palantine Hill and the Colosseum. Inside there are incredible statues, busts, and paintings, and the building itself is an architectural masterpiece. We didn't find value in...More

This is not one of the most famous museum of Rome, but I really liked the atmosphere. Marvellous masterpieces of ancient roman art are exposed in an historical palace right behind Piazza Navona.

Across the street from the church was Palazzo Altemps. Wow, we were very impressed with this luxurious palace designed by Melozzo da Forli for Girolamo Riario. The palace became the home of the Altemps family in 1568, and there is a stunning inner courtyard. The...More

Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a
five-minute walk of each other, the
Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and
most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful
throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art
galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood
museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the
streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa

I remember been there about two hours, those ancient god statues fascinated me and I was going around there and back again in that maze. It's good if you can go there another day, too. There so much to look at.
