This is a delightful little museum close to Piazza Navona. Even though we were there during the summer(which is presumed to be the busiest in terms of tourists) literally no one was there apart from us. The museum is manageable and the few statues in...More

In contrast to the outside, which is crowded with people, it was nice and peaceful in this wonderful museum. When we were there there were less than 20 people in the entire museum. The collections of marble statues were extensively and beautiful. We even purchase...More

What a gem. A friend and I happened on this museum more or less by chance. Not only are the statues great, the building is amazingly interesting in its own right. But best of all is the curating as the museum reflects on ruins, restorations,...More

The main reasons for going to the Altemps are to see the great palace it is housed in and the restoration, and the collections of antique (Greek to Roman) marbles housed there. It's not heavily visited, though right at the top of Piazza Navona, so...More

In a city filled with stunning churches and museums, this one is worth a visit. First up, it is inexpensive and the same ticket will get you into some other good museums for 3 days. Secondly, it is off the beaten track: most of the...More

The palazzo itself is okay, but much of the Renaissance décor has faded. We’re not into Roman sculpture that much, so there was only a few pieces that impressed us. So an hour was more than enough here for us. To be fair we only...More

The staff were extremely informative and helpful. The palace itself is beautiful, with a fascinating collection of statues, frescos and reliefs. The work is well curated in English therefore an audio guide or tour is not necessary, but for the uneducated like myself the audio...More

Very close to Piazza Navona, and however far from the crowd ; this palace hosts a museum of Roman treasures (it as actually part of the "National Museum of Rome". The so-called "Ludovisi Throne" alone is worth the visit, among several treasures.

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
