Housed in a gorgeous pink (!) palazzo, this was the studio and home of a Norwegian-American sculptor who came to Europe in 1893, eventually making Rome his home. His collection of monumental, Neo-classical sculpture was left to the Italian Government on his death, and his...More

A nice little building, very close to Lungotevere A. da Brescia. This was the roman house and atelier "Villa Helene" of H. C. Andersen, a Norwegian artist and sculptor (he died in Rome in 1940). Very different from other roman muesum, this is a very...More

Near Metro Flaminio, you can find this hidden little museum that covers the private collection and most important works of Hendrik Christian Andersen, and you can visit it for free in less than a couple of hours. Nice sculptures and paintings that will definitely add...More

This place is close to Piazza Del Popolo and is not very popular with tourists because it is a bit of a walking distance to the metro stations. Also, museums which are not well marketed tend to be less popular with the tourists. Anyway, this...More

This museum lies in a residence area of the city, a bit away from other attractions, but still easy to access from Piazza del Popolo/Piazzale Flaminio (Metro line A). At first, it looks that the two rooms are just packed with sculptures in bronze and...More

This is a true "insider". Not very far from Piazza di Popolo (and a good destination for a rainy day) is the House of Henrik Christian Andersen. He was an artist and his former house is densly populated by his designs. He had the idea...More

I am a lover of museums and art, but must say this was a bit disappointing. Maybe because the guide read from a manuscript and didn't once look at us. They should work on that. Be more enthusiastic about the guiding. But the museum has...More

I agree with the other reviewer - this is a little museum that deserves to be seen. It is such a pleasure to have some space to admire the pieces, rather than elbowing for a view. When I visited, there was also an exhibition of...More

Young and well-to-do families are the street flavour
of Parioli. A new kind of Rome, this area is centuries
away from the Renaissance with its pockets of 1930s
palaces, tony boutiques, open-air markets and plenty
of coffee shops. Parioli was built as an enclave for
last century’s haute bourgeois and still represents as
such in 21st century Rome. Need a break? The area has
several great sporting clubs known for tennis and
