  • For the ancient Roman culture enthusiast, visit four National Museums with this combined ticket
  • Visit the Palazzo Altemps, ranked the #3 Museum in Rome by the Guardian
  • See the archaeological excavation site at the Balbi Crypt, beautiful ancient artworks at Palazzo Massimo alle Terme, and go swimming (in your mind) at the Diocletian Bath and Octagonal Hall

The four National Museums of Rome (Palazzo Massimo alle Terme, Palazzo Altemps, Balbi Crypt Museum and Baths of Diocletian) all feature magnificent collections of paintings, sculptures, jewelry and other artifacts. This combination ticket gives you access to all four, and ultra-handy three-day validity means you can tackle them in any order you fancy.

The grand Palazzo Massimo alle Terme houses a wealth of bronze statues, ancient frescoes, and a giant collection of historic coins including Theodoric’s medallion and the four ducats of Pope Paul II. Keep an eye out for the perfectly preserved mummy on the ground floor!

At the Altemps you can admire the building's original 15th-century fresco before immersing yourself in exhibits dedicated to the history of collecting.

The Balbi Crypt displays artifacts discovered in a (literally) groundbreaking archaeological excavation in the Campus Martius, with a huge collection of recovered relics which chart the history of the Italian capital.

And in the Baths of Diocletian you'll get to explore an ancient bath complex transformed into a church and chapterhouse by Michaelangelo himself!

Insider tip

You can continue the time-traveling adventure by watching a short 3D film at the meeting point after the tour. Showing what the Colosseum, Underground Rome, Pantheon, and the Circus Maximus looked like during their heyday, the film will give a real sense of the living, breathing history that is contained within these remarkable remnants of the ancient world.
