Excellent for anyone interested in the subject. The exhibits are informative and well thought out. The amount is almost too much for one visit. Accessible by subway + tram. Staff were friendly too.

This is a large museum with a huge number of exhibits. To properly look at everything would take a full day. All exhibits are beautifully presented. All exhibits are labelled - in Italian language...
This is a large museum with a huge number of exhibits. To properly look at everything would take a full day. All exhibits are beautifully presented. All exhibits are labelled - in Italian language only. One suggestion I would make is that all labelling be done in both Italian and English as that would considerably increase the available audience.

The National Etruscan Museum is a magnificent Renaissance palace built for Pope Julius III between 1550 and 1555. Surrounded by beautiful gardens, the museum collection is devoted to the Etruscan civilization. The terracotta funerary monuments and the sarcophagi from the 5th century BC are among the highlights of the collection. Located on the north side of the Villa Borghese, Villa Giulia is stunning inside and out.

Built between 1609 and 1613, this opulent structure - fountains, gardens, pink marble walls, frescoed ceilings - seems ideally suited to house one of the world's best collections of art. And that was exactly what it was built for. Architect Flaminio Ponzio designed it for the cardinal and art collector Scipione Borghese, who wanted a party villa on the edge of town where he could house his enormous collection of priceless art. In 1901, the collection (and the gallery, and the park that surrounds it) was acquired by the Italian government, and opened to the public. As a museum, Galleria Borghese punches well above its weight with an impressive hit rate of masterpieces. Sculptures by Bernini and Canova, paintings, by Caravaggio, Raphael and Titian... the list goes on.

Consisting of four grand and historic palazzos, this complex of museums was designed by Michelangelo. Its large collection is devoted largely to the history of Rome itself, and it features many many artifacts that date back to antiquity. It's also considered to be the world's original museum. Pope Clementine XII opened it up to the Roman public in 1734.

The towering cylinder of Castel Sant'Angelo, and its statue of Archangel Michael, is an instantly recognizable silhouette on the banks of the Tiber. Initially built as a mausoleum for Emperor Hadrian and his family, its purpose has changed many times over the years, from a fortress, a residence, a prison, and now a museum.

When Rome was Caput Mundi (Capital of the World), the Roman Forum was the very heart of the Roman Empire. Now a sprawling complex of ruins, it is here, a javelin's toss from the Colosseum, where everything happened: from making and enforcing laws to buying and selling exotic goods. Highlights include the Temple of Vesta, the Temple of Caesar, and the Senate House.

The Colosseum is a massive ancient amphitheater in the center of Rome. Picked apart by scavengers and ravaged by earthquakes and time, the Colosseum still stands as an impressive symbol of life in Ancient Rome. It showcases the power of past emperors and the durability of the Eternal City. This huge, marble and limestone structure was built to hold more than 50,000 spectators, all there to revel in the various forms of (mostly violent) entertainment, such as hunts, gladiator battles, and executions.
