The "Museo Nazionale Romano" in Palazzo Massimo, in front of Termini Railway Station, is not toobig, not too crowded, not too expensive, but really a wonderful comprehensive insight in Roman Civilization, from Republican-era noble portraits to late ancient sarcophagi.

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.

way to describe the Esquilino neighbourhood. The
Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas
in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s
