Get ready for la dolce vita and spend your summer at some of the best museums and attractions in Italy’s capital.

Get your spark back in one of Europe’s great historic cities and see everything from its ancient underground, to a 19th-century park with its own waterfall! Tiqets has carefully curated your summer in Rome, so you can indulge in everything from history and nature to world-class art exhibits and fantastic theme parks.

Villa Gregoriana

For peace and beauty

Why you’ll love it: Located just a 30-minute drive from Rome, Villa Gregoriana will remind you of just how beautiful Italy’s nature can be. Commissioned in the 19th century by Pope Gregory XVI, this park is full of hiking trails, natural caves, and a wonderful still silence – without a Vespa in earshot. Arguably most impressive of all: the park includes a Roman temple, that might have been dedicated to Hercules, which looks down on the second-highest waterfall in Italy.

Leonardo da Vinci Experience

For inventing new memories

Why you’ll love it: The defining Renaissance man, Leonardo da Vinci is still stunning museum-goers with his art more than 500 years after he passed away. While Da Vinci’s artistic talent would have been enough to cement him in any history book, his mind offered so much more. Inside the Leonardo da Vinci Experience, you can discover his portfolio of engineering genius with recreations of his most impressive inventions. Interactive displays, holograms, and a gallery filled with recreations of his most famous works makes this museum well worth a visit.


For cooling down

Why you’ll love it: So, what makes this aquarium so special? Well, not only is there a pool and a water park, Zoomarine also has its own rollercoaster rides! On top of that, there are dolphin and sea lion shows, a sea turtle rescue and rehabilitation center, an exotic bird-filled enchanted forest, and even a 4D cinema. If you’re spending summer in Rome and want a day that’s packed with activities, this is the place for you.

Palazzo Strozzi

For a day trip from Rome

Why you’ll love it: It’s one of Florence’s greatest Renaissance residences. Art lovers, this one’s for you. Explore stunning changing exhibitions in this independent public-private cultural foundation. The building’s Renaissance architecture is a feast for the eyes as well! Right now, you can enjoy American Art 1961–2001 at Palazzo Strozzi. The exhibition brings together more than 80 works by the likes of Andy Warhol, Mark Rothko, Bruce Nauman and Roy Lichtenstein.

Trevi Underground

For the history buff

Why you’ll love it: Trevi Fountain is an icon of Rome, but snapping a selfie in front of it isn’t enough when you can go beneath it and discover an archaeological site that dates back to the empire! Buried nine meters below the city’s modern streets, a trove of imperial ruins is waiting for you to discover it. If you’ve got an eye for Ancient Rome, you won’t want to miss this.
