Museo Leonardo da Vinci brings you an all-encompassing view of a man who is arguably the greatest genius the world has known and someone who definitely lived an extraordinary life. The most comprehensive Leonardo da Vinci museum in Rome is located at the famous Basilica Santa Maria in Piazza del Popolo, a short five-minute walk from the Spanish Steps and Villa Borghese. Bringing to life the genius of Leonardo da Vinci as an inventor, artist scientist, anatomist, engineer and architect, the museum is a fascinating and inspirational experience, perfect for visitors of all ages and suitable for the whole family to enjoy. Museo Leonardo da Vinci presents interactive and life-size machines crafted by Italian artisans from Leonardo's codices, studies of his most famous Renaissance art, anatomical sketches and multimedia animations which tell the fascinating stories of The Last Supper, Vitruvian Man and the Sforza equestrian sculpture.

Very pricey for what they offer. Explanations lack introduction and everything is quite basic. Maybe good for kids to play and get an idea about the inventions of da Vinci. I don't recommend it anyway

Not mentioned much, this was an interesting place to see. The models are remakes, not originals, made up from plans and diagrams Leonardo left. Still good to see the ideas, and see how inventive he was.........mostly! (A couple of things didn't look like they'd succeed.)...More

Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields
to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most
desirable neighbourhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best
place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and
Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with
enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s
best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a
fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to

Museum have to be opened those months. We purchase tickets at the desk and there were not even a many people waiting. So you just need to appoint the address and to reach the square, whoch excellent as well.
