Museum was a few minutes walk from the Termini station. Hoping to see some historical Roman pieces. Museum was a tremendous building and courtyard, loaded with archaeological finds. Items were from various places in the Roman empire. The large courtyard, designed by MichaelAngelo, held larger...More

My favorite part of this museum were the mosaics. They exceeded others I've seen in world class museums. This museum also had sculptures, outstanding frescoes a Roman calendar, and ship artifacts that I found interesting.

This was the highlight of our trip to Rome. We used our Roma Pass for reduced entry and as we were short on time went straight to the second floor where entire rooms of wall paintings have been brought from various villas excavated in and...More

The ancient murals and mosaics are the true stars here. Head upstairs to immerse yourself in Livia's Garden, an entire room that's lined with enchanting murals that once graced the dining room in her villa. Imagine being surrounded by the same beautiful images enjoyed by...More

it was very busy when I went but I didn't see a any security anywhere. Loads of tourists were touching the artifacts there without anyone saying anything. It was a interesting tour of the museum and the people in the cloakroom were so funny!

This was a fantastic experience right across from the Termini. The mosaics that are in this museum are unreal in detail. I would say that at most this is a two hour visit and is most enjoyable.

I absolutely LOVE this place. This feels much more personal and intimate than the vatican and gives you a real feeling of life in Rome (for rich people obviously). Sitting in Livia's room is surreal and one of my highlights, there is also a real...More

This is a world class museum that you will probably have all to yourself because no one goes to it. It's their loss because on the upper levels are entire recreations of ancient Roman palazzos complete with mosaics and frescoed walls. If you have the...More

Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only
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
famous seven hills. From an ancient neighbourhood to
its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub,
Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot
