Outstanding collection of ancient Roman art, very well organized and displayed. Collection is large and varied: jewelry, frescoes, mosaics, and sculpture. The most incredible piece is the entire four walls of a large room from Livia's villa, beautifully painted to resemble a garden. It's nearly...More

We initially visited this site for the ruined baths, but the art collection turned out to be of even more interest. The frescos give a tantalizing glimpse of how the ancient elite lived.

The ancient murals and mosaics are the true stars here. Head upstairs to immerse yourself in Livia's Garden, an entire room that's lined with enchanting murals that once graced the dining room in her villa. Imagine being surrounded by the same beautiful images enjoyed by...More

it was very busy when I went but I didn't see a any security anywhere. Loads of tourists were touching the artifacts there without anyone saying anything. It was a interesting tour of the museum and the people in the cloakroom were so funny!

Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only
way to describe the Esquilino neighbourhood. The
