Only a couple of euros to get in and we'll worth it. Will only take you 30-60 mins to go around but some interesting ghoulish stories to be had

We discovered this in the 'Hidden Rome' page of our guidebook. It would have been a bit awkward to find without google maps but it was well worth it. Only 2 euros each yet it was lovely and quiet. Not all of the exhibits had...More

We had a week in Rome, and this was definitely in the top three highlights. I'd be interested in a museum like this normally, but what made it even better was that, after travelling through Europe for the past three months.. it offered something DIFFERENT....More

We had a little time on a rainy morning and found this museum listed on TripAdvisor. It's a little bit off the beaten path -- the taxi dropped us off in front of the Anti-Mafia unit of the Italian Police and we had to roam...More

After spending three days in Rome with three small boys, they were keen to do something other than go and visit another church or Roman ruin, so the Crime Museum was a great alternative. It's really low key with a small entrance on a side...More

Only 2 euro entry, and I had the place to myself. The museum is pretty easy to find, but I found the man at the ticket booth knew no English but that's okay because you can just practice your basic Italian to ask if the...More

At times I have a fascination for the dark side of history, unfortunately good comes with the bad. A visit to the criminal museum in Rome hit the spot, inexpensive at 2 euros each, the museum is very quiet, there were very few visitors there...More

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
