Yet another amazing museum. The amount of statues, busts, mosaics and even full room interiors, is amazing. The layout is excellent in a modern museum setting. Cheaper entry price than alot of museums in Rome. One of my favourite museums well worth a visit.

The frescos and mosaics on the top floor are the highlight of this museum. There are some great statues too, but you might already be statued out... Cheaper to get in than some of the other museums, and less crowded.

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
