This small (and free!) museum is a real gem in the heart of Rome. Made up of a private collection of ancient sculpture, and housed in the collector’s 16th century palazzo, what it lacks in size is more than made up for in quality. A...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.

Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a
five-minute walk of each other, the

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
