Overview
More
The Markets of Trajan are an archaeological complex of uniqueness in Rome, perhaps even worldwide. They represent an area that has experienced the evolution of the city from the imperial age to today; an area that has been constantly recycled and transformed. The markets once the strategic administrative centre of the Imperial Forums, successively became a noble residence, a military fortress, a prestigious convent and a barracks... a continuous evolution.

This covers a large area and many stairs. I would not recommend for anyone with a stroller or wheelchair. There’s objects to view inside on two levels and outside on 3-4 levels. It’s a maze to get to them all. A map would be useful....More

Worth a visit anyway but, combined with the temporary exhibition "Trajan. Building the Empire, creating Europe", it's an awesome experience.

It's an incredible site. I went by my own and took time to really see everything I could inside, and that took me about 2-3 hours so it's not that time demanding. I was surprised that it was only me and just a couple more...More

Extremely interesting archeological site, which would deserve five stars. Thanks to an incredibly rude male member of staff, I can only give one.

Another impressive survivor, with massive walls. Possibly the first shopping mall. The museum part is somewhat limited. At 15 euros each, it seems too expensive for what it is.

A mix of archaeology, hands-on exploration, and technology. Museum helps you understand the scope and importance of the buildings that stood where there are now only ruins. Extensive outdoor terraces let you get a panoramic view over the ruins so you can apply what you've...More

The emperor Traiano was definitely one of the greatest emperors in the history of Rome. To visit a museum that focuses a lot on this man's life and accomplishments - particularly the conquering of Dacia - was very fascinating. They all give access to a...More

Monti
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighbourhood just
west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as
it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet
for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season,
quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its
cobblestone streets. The neighbourhood supports unique
and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime
residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at
