I have been to this museum a couple of times and each time I go, I see something new. Lots of classical sculpture and a great bookshop.

This collection really impressed me more than expected. Statues, mosaics, frescoes, and artifacts all from the period of time that interested me most. Very uncrowded. There was no line when we got there after noon. This provided a more intimate viewing of the displayed treasures....More

This was one of the best museum visits we had in Rome. The museum is filled with marble sculptures from 200 BC to 200 AD, that you could see up close. There were also floors with similar era mosaics and frescoes. The highlight for me...More

I LOVE sculpture so I was really looking forward to going and in that respect it didn't disappoint but I was lucky as "due to stuff shortages" the second floor was closed from 2:00-4:00 (I got there at 4:00) and the 3rd floor closed entirely....More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Palazzo Massimo. It's collection is very extensive and impressive. We especially liked the room covered with a continuous painting. It is the first one done in Italy and is beautiful. The museum can be covered in a reasonable amount...More

Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only
way to describe the Esquilino neighbourhood. The
Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas
in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s
famous seven hills. From an ancient neighbourhood to
its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub,
Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot

We spent there 2.5 hours. But could have spent more 😀

In Mary Beard's, "Ultimate Rome: Empire Without Limit Part 1" she displayed 4 replica Milestone drinking goblets at a pub in either Segovia or Cadiz. These subbed for both souvenirs and cups for weary travellers on all those Roman roads built throughout the empire. I would like to have one of those souvenirs myself! I tried to contact Beard but have been unable to find her e-mail address. Perhaps someone could make a comment if they know anything about these cups or even if someone who would know Beard could put me in contact with her. Thanks E Brownie

I would like to know if you sell at your museum store any replicas of the ancient Roman milestone drinking cups as described in Mary Beard's series on Rome, and if not where it would be possible to acquire one of these replica cups.

Thanks for your input. I did post some supplemental info to my original query regarding the Milestone Drinking cups a couple of hours ago just in case someone might know of these cups. Best wishes Eb
