If you are going to tour Villa Medici you may want to do it first. We toured the Vatican, St. Peter's Basilica, and the Sistine Chapel and nothing compares after that. The 90 minute tour centers mostly on the gardens and only 1/2 an hour...More

To be honest, I didn't really do my homework on the villa, so I didn't expect that all visitors must have a guided tour for their visit. Luckily, an English speaking tour was just about to start once we arrived. The tour I believe is...More

Great Place to see. Only see by tours at certain times. Tours in many languages. It is a early Renaissance Villa owned by the Medici now a French art school. Not allowed to walk alone. There is a cafe up the stairs and toilets.

Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields
to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most
desirable neighbourhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best
place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and
Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with
enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s
best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a
fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to
