Dedicate several hours to this place, which seems to go on forever, and you will not be disappointed. We really enjoyed the special exhibition, the architecture alone makes it worth a visit, and the staff were very, very helpful. Tucked out of the way it...More

Just off the Piazza Navona this subtle building doesn't portray what lies within. It is full of sculptures, some of which are, huge and interesting antiques. There is a beautiful chapel that really indicates the wealth of the family that occupied it originally. It is...More

Paintings are more my thing but I am so very glad I visited this uncrowded museum just about a block northwest of Piazza Navona. There was awe and more awe around every corner. And the staff were the greatest. I had one piece of sculpture...More

It is nice to know the history of Altemps family (who derived from a German mercenary and had several high priest in the following years). The palace itself is really beautiful, with a marvelous loggia. Inside, there is a great museum of ancient roman statues,...More

First question tho: Is it possible that people don't know/don't want to visit this amazing place? Everywhere in Rome there are massive crowds but when we came here, there were 10 more people tops in this museum! Which was so surprising considering it's National Museum...More

For the price of one museum you get four! We had visited the Baths of Diocletian on Sunday and our ticket was lapsing so we made the effort to add another two of the three left. This is a place I had not seen before...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.
