I really wanted to see the lovely frescoes from the house of Livia at the Palazzo Massimo and was not disappointed - they are beautiful and amazing, given their age! The other frescoes are also fascinating. Otherwise, the displays are mainly statuary with many, many...More

Due to our schedule, we had an extra day. We chose to spend it at the National Roman Museum, and not just the sculpture museum. We loved the other museums, too, especially the Epigraphic Museum about communication and writing. That was fascinating. The Palazzo Massimo...More

We thought we had seen enough of Roman and Etruscan antiquities, and then along comes this place! Wonderful exhibits in a wonderful setting -- and that rarity of rarities in Rome -- FREE! It even has delightful, serene gardens to relax in, again something hard...More

I agree with other reviewers -- this amazing museum with its stunning sculpture, mosaics, frescos and other decorative arts, all beautifully curated and displayed -- is remarkably uncrowded. I went way off-season and it was basically empty. Inside you will find the very finest and...More

Surprisingly little people visit this museum but I thought it is absolutely worthwhile. Most of all, I liked the mosaics. While some of them are damaged, surprisingly a lot are preserved in their entirety, allowing you to get a full view of their cunning outlines....More

This museum was about 10 minutes from my hotel, and was a great place to start my visit it Rome. The highlight for me was the fresco area on the lower floor, particularly the "garden room" from Casa Liva. This museum was the least crowded...More

One of the places covered with the archaeological card. Well worth the trip. The information there is so in depth and it is worth the visit just for the bronze athletes. Spent so long looking round all the floors. They also hold a selection of...More

Based on 2011 trip to museum branch near main train station. Lots of space to exhibit these pieces so the viewer doesn't feel overwhelmed. My favorites: the hyper-realistic boxer sculpture and the mosaic room.

This museum is fascinating for its history of Rome, but don't touch anything nor sit on any steps. I got in trouble for both though no signs indicate that this will happen. I did, however, learn more about Rome and Italy than I ever expected....More

Esquilino
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
