As in many if not all state museums, not saying there not worth the normal fee, however when in Rome, and there was actually no queues, (quite strange really. So, this palazzo was in the Neo-renaissance style (quite beautiful), now part of the National Roman...More

This museum is an absolute gem. The collection of classical art -- from the sculptures to the mosaics to the wall paintings -- is world-class, the stuff of art history 101 textbooks. The interpretation and labels were excellent as well. We experienced none of the...More

Very nice museum near the train station full of statues, frescoes and coins from Ancient Rome. Very convenient to the train station. My young children found the statues and frescoes boring but were interested in the coins, jewelry and mummy in the basement.

It was a rainy day and this was super close to our hotel - so we dropped in. What a find! 10 euros to get in and a morning well spent exploring the many thousands of artefacts. It’s not crowded at all, there’s a free...More

Pretty remarkable group of statues from a lot of different eras, These cover from very early to later in Rome's glory. Very spacious and well put together. I particularly enjoyed the video on the raising of Caligua's barges.

Fantastic collection of marble busts, statues and sarcophagi but the mosaics and frescoes were the absolute highlight. The video and the roooms reconstructed are worth seeing to gain an appreciation of the opulence of life for the wealthy Roman. The bronzes from Caligula’s floating palace...More

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

This museum is amazing. It has anything you could want from Greek and Roman artifacts. My favorite was either the bronze Seated Boxer or Augustus as Pontifex Maximus. There are also amazing frescoes from the Prima Porta Villa that belonged to Augustus's wife. I would...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.

Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only
way to describe the Esquilino neighbourhood. The
Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas
in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s
famous seven hills. From an ancient neighbourhood to
its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub,
Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot
