The wonderful Palazzo Altemps Museum is near Piazza Navona. Its collection of statuary was second to none. If you are into classical statuary then this is the museum for you. Wonderfully laid out modern museum with loads of space which is what this type of statuary needs. Highlight included the classic statue of the Gaul killing himself and his wife... More

Loved this place. I am an Antinous fan(greatest love of Emperor Hadrian), many touches of him in this old and splendid palace - looking medieval - and reminding me about Florence. Single ticket valid for 3 days at 4 sites (Palazzo Massimo, Palazzo Altemps, Crypta Balbi, Baths of Diocletian)Full price: € 7.00

We gave up queuing to get into St Peter's Basilica as it would have taken hours to get in, so decided to absorb the feel of the city instead. We came across this museum as we walked around and decided to give it a go. The statues are spread out across a restored Palazzo. One or two treasures there like... More

We spend some time to see Altemps. Several statues no explanations just like a pile of stuff with no meaning don't bother visiting especially if you don't have plenty of time

We came here on a sunday afternoon and it was a marvelous place to explore, statues are great, the way theyre set out is fab, got some really good snaps as the museum wasnt at all busy, we spent maybe 90minutes here walking around enjoying the statues and the vibe, items have good descriptions, well worth your time to visit

Make sure you that you have enough time to visit all the four museums you get admission to when buying a ticket at either Palazzo Altemps, Palazzo Massimo, Crypta Balbi or Baths of Diocletian. The Altemps is in a nice building, but the art and artefacts in this building sadly was of less interest to us than the ones at... More

This was one of the few exhibits that we visited in Rome outside of the typical hot spots. It was absolutely beautiful. The building was amazing on its own, plus the fantastic sculpture and ceramic pieces. It is included in the archeological pass for Rome including the Colosseum and Roman Forum, and definitely worth the trip.

It was a rainy day in Rome so we decided to go to some museums. The complex of the museu Nazionale Romano consists of 5 different museums at different places. Each one is worth seeing and included in the ticked price. This was the third museum we visited this day. I liked it very much. The sculptures and the descriptions... More

Fabulous museum for getting to better understand Roman history & how the society of both the rulers & the ruled changed throughout the millenia & what were the influences that triggered it. Very well laid out chronologically.

Staying in Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori

Neighbourhood Profile
Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
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.
