Well I had always wanted to visit this museum, but in my several trips to Rome I never took the time, until now. OK, that's done -- and it only took about 30 minutes of my time. I can honestly say that the highlight of...More

The rooms are overwhelmed by what looks like Victorian bookshelves, which means that information is placed high up and is difficult to read. Not to mention that the info looks like it was typed out half a century ago. The bookshelves ruin any vestige of...More

Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields
to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most
desirable neighbourhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best
place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and
Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with
enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s
best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a
fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to
