We have been to the Chiostro del Bramante several times to visit the exhibits they have on show regularly. All have been outstanding. The exhibition area is not excessively large, so it's not an exhausting place. At the same time, it provides visitors all they may need, such as lockers to leave your belongings (not just the usual cloakroom) and one of the nicest small restaurants in downtown Rome. You can sit either inside or on the cloister just outside. It's a place we just love. This time we saw an outstanding exhibit about Alma-Tadema and other English 19th. century painters.

This is quite a handy little gallery and when we visited they had an excellent exhibition on Cleopatra. It goes on to explain how Egypt and Cleopatra managed to charm and excite the people of Rome. Cleopatra used her guile to seduce both Julius Caesar and then Marc Antony. This excellent display has many artifacts from that time. The price included an audio guide.

Bramante's Cloisters adjacent to Santa Maria della Pace had been closed for a very long time. They are now creatively transformed into a temporary exhibition space with a nice cafe and a view into the church to see Raphael's frescoes. It is conveniently situated near Piazza Navona. When we visited, it housed a temporary exhibition on Cleopatra and her influence on Rome which was very good, with many objects from Italian Museums. A nice experience, warmly recommended.

While we were in Rome we were fortunate to visit a special exhibit, Cleopatra in Rome at the Chiostro del Bramante. The exhibit had many artifacts from other museums on temporary loan to this museum. Cleopatra's significance, her history with Julius Caesar and Marc Anthony were well documented with artifacts, and there was ample evidence that Cleopatra was quite a significant personality both in Egypt as well as in the Roman Empire at the time. This is a great exhibit for history buffs. This exhibit is open until February 2, 2014.
