    Another must see in Rome, in remarkable condition for it's age. Be prepared to queue, equally if not more impressive from the outside rather than inside.

    Must see, book your ticket online through official website in advance. Don’t recommend to go for the more expensive option to have access to the ground floor as without the ticket you can also see the ground floor on the other side, so nothing special unless you manage to book the underground tour as well. First visit Colloseum as you have a ticket for specific time and then continue to Forum Romanum etc.

    This is another part of of ancient Roman history. There are information boards strategically placed (in Italian and English) to explain what you are seeing.

    Book tickets on line. Walk round and marvel at the Roman civilisation of the time. Get there as early as you can to get a head start on the guided tours. Allow about 3hours +

    Our apartment overlooked the Piazza Navona. Lovely piazza with 3 beautiful fountains and lots of restaurants to choose from. Easy to get around from here

    Impressive from outside and inside. Mask wearing was adhered to. Actually a practicing church to respectfully be quiet when looking around

    A day trip to Rome as part of our cruise, so much to see in the capital but we made the most of our time there.
    We walked through the main square and found our way to the fountain. It was mid day and busy even through it was early in the holiday season April.
    The weather was lovely and we were able to get close, take photos and throw coins in and make a wish as most tourists do.
    It is a must see attraction in Rome.

    Wonderful place , with nice aura. Crowded. Many small shops with for example hand made things as well as restaurants. Place to visit.

    Our guide was very good and tour was in English. The site does take a bit of imagination to ascertain how this would have looked in Nero's day but I found the 3D experience very helpful. I really felt I was in this amazing villa in Nero's day.
    There isn't a great deal left in terms of mosaics and frescos ( very little actually) and you mostly see ancient and more recent brick work but for me, being inside part of what used to be Nero's grand vision was incredible.

    I'm not usually very interested in sculpture, it's the part I generally skip in large museums. But the Musei Capitolini are quite delightful, it's masterpiece after masterpiece, mostly antique sculpture, and the setting is worth the visit for itself. Some rooms you can pass quickly, I also found the painting section wasn't nearly at the level of the sculpture one, but we very much enjoyed our visit with our 3 children. Don't miss the Palazzo Nuovo (which you access through an underground tunnel).

    A beautiful palace, and an even better art museum. I went to the Borghese Gallery the day before, and as much as I loved that spot, the crowds were quite busy and the rules were strict. The Doria Pamphilj, however, was much more relaxed. It wasn't nearly as crowded (perhaps because I went in the morning), I didn't need to deposit my bag anywhere, and the staff seemed less overwhelmed and therefore a bit friendlier.

    An audioguide would probably be a good investment! There aren't any signs next to the pieces giving any context or history. Just simply the name of the artist.

    There's also an impressive collection here. Obviously, Velazquez's "Portrait of Innocent the X" is probably their most famous work. They have some early Caravaggio (my personal favourite), Raphael, Carracci, Titian, Brill, Lippi.

    Although the collection is probably not as extensive or well-known as Borghese, I think the gallery provides a competitive alternative. I would also argue the palace itself is much more charming, and overall more beautiful and better taken care of than its rival.

    The historic centre of Rome is simply incredible, with ancient history round every corner. Lots of the sites are within easy walking distance of each other.

    The basilica only has a handout describing the basilica and the levels underneath.

    It was quite interesting but I left with the feeling that 80% of the importance or impact was left unknown to me

    Fabulous museum. Not overloaded with objects but world class items. Sculptures and statues that I will never forget.
    The pugilist.
    The discus thrower.
    Etc.
