Forget those over- hyped museums and attractions. This is the real deal. For a very reasonable admission fee you will currently see a wonderful photo exhibition. But that is not all. The upper floor has interesting art created by local artists. This is a great place to spend several hours.

Stumbled across this museum by accident and spent an enjoyable hour viewing evocative photos of tough lives in the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s. Upstairs some rare watercolours of life on the Tiber 150 years ago. €6 each; well worth it.

We visited Museo di Roma in Trastevere for the World Press Photo 2016 exhibition in May. The photos were wonderful and covered a lot of themes, some were very thought provoking, while others reinforced what a wonderful world we live in. The museum did a wonderful job of displaying them. Checking the official website the museum has held this exhibition... More

We don't even need to read the guidebooks, there is always something interesting here. Last week we enjoyed the first floor exhibit Pais del Cinema - still photos taken during filming. Sophia, Marcello, Claudia Cardinale, Anita Eckberg. Fabuloso! The staff are always very helpful - truly wonderful women. Grazie!

A photographic exhibition on the ground floor with very large photos of young women and girls in many countries around the world. Very strong and very very positive. The book is for sale in the bookstore and worth taking home. The photos are hung around a courtyard full of flowers and trees. I could have stayed there all day!

Rome's summer exhibition cycle already begun, the most unpredictable among them, BORN INVISIBLE is a splendid exhibition of Sheila McKinnon's compelling images of young girls from Asia, Africa and India. Her works are not only about young girls but the lives thereof and the societies they are born into. An eloquent prose on a pressing humanitarian problem presented with artistic... More

At first glance it did not look very exciting but the exhibition of black and white photos from the 50s and 70s were stunning and also the displays on life in the trastevere were fascinating. Definitely worth a couple of hours and the entrance fee.

The permanent display of this museum is quite interesting with the emphasis on local aspects. However, some of the temporary exhibits are quite clearly of a standard that raises the museum to National standard. The current exhibition of 84 photographs by Gianni Giansanti, past winner of the prize of world's best photographer ( he took the famous photo of Aldo... More

Staying in Trastevere

Neighbourhood Profile
Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded postcard, a little worn around the edges but still charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of entertainment - a rotating set of street performers entertains almost every night, and unforgettable eateries and bars pepper its piazzas and side streets. For a trip to the past, visit the southern and western flanks of Trastevere for pockets of yesteryear, less traversed areas with a residual 1960s and 70s Roman vibe.
