A real treasure in the heart of Rome. This beautiful museum of ancient sculpture is very little known but hides a wonderful archaeological collection created by G. Barracco and donated by him to the city of Rome in 1902.
Here you can see magnificent pieces...More
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
Interesting museum that houses artifacts of Egyptian , Assyrian and Greek from 8th/9th century BC.
Funerary sculptures,Phoenician art, Etruscan art and medieval artifacts.
Its a small museum , less crowds but worth seeing some ancient art collection.

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

the Barracco museum is located right next to the Piazza Navona and is housed in a rather strange looking building that looks really interesting and should peek your attention. Entrance to the museum is free (one of the only free museums in Rome) and there...More
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
drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
