Very nice museum of Egyptian and Greek art. You can touch and interact with the exhibits for the most part. Plus they have a very clean public bathroom as soon as you enter, to the right and down the stairs. The museum workers are very...More

This is a museum that we have been trying to see for years, but seem to have missed on our other trips to Rome. It is free to the public. We were so surprised to see the depth of the collection of Giovanni Barracco (1829–1914),...More

Stumbled upon this place when walking around. It was very worth the visit and it's FREE. Nice collection of statues and other ancient stuff. Better than some of the not-free museums.

It is a little museum, to see in half an hour, and it's free. Totally recommendable to go there while you go by.

Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a
five-minute walk of each other, the
Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and
most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful
throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art
galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood
museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the
streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa
