Lovely museum, worth every minute spent there. It has a wealth of exhibits, albeit half or so not with English legends. No matter. It houses fantastic, Etruscan sculptures, ceramics and fine artifacts. For most of the museum, I was completely alone, walking through its galleries....More

We have missed a lot because the objects on display have no English language text at all. Some of the staff were nice but some really rude. These two things spoiled our visit of this, if you read Italian, interesting museum.

I visited this wonderful museum earlier in the year. It is absolutely a gem, a dive into the history of Rome before actual Rome. Etruscans and other less known people populated the region before the Roman expansion, trading with the whole of the Mediterranean and...More

Learn about people who lived in Rome before it was built - Etruscans, who effected the Roman culture and history. The Etruscan Museum is not overcrowded, it is located near the Borghese Villa, in Julia's Villa. Pay attention to the charming terracotta funerary sculptures.

The Etruscans are the people who lived just north of Rome and influenced the Romans in many, many ways. This museum is dedicated to displaying Etruscan art and artifacts and is an interesting sidelight to the "Roman" tour. The museum itself has beautiful grounds and...More

This gem of a museum is well-worth a visit for anyone interested in archaeology, the Etruscans, or Renaissance architecture. The museum grounds are a treat in and of themselves, and the museum has excellent exhibits, a fantastic collection, and good interpretation in Italian and English....More

Young and well-to-do families are the street flavour
of Parioli. A new kind of Rome, this area is centuries
away from the Renaissance with its pockets of 1930s
palaces, tony boutiques, open-air markets and plenty
of coffee shops. Parioli was built as an enclave for
last century’s haute bourgeois and still represents as
such in 21st century Rome. Need a break? The area has
several great sporting clubs known for tennis and
