The view overlooking the forum was my favorite part. Follow the signs to the "Tabularium" - get there a little before sunset and you'll see the ruins painted with beautiful sunset colors. Oh, and since the Forum's closed by 16.30, your view will be completely tourist free!

There were no lines to get in and no crowds inside. Collection of antiquities is so huge that it would take many visits to really see it all.

Stunning sculptures and paintings, a wonderful way to escape the heat and wander along this amazing place. By happenstance I got slightly lost and ended up at the top of the museum with breathtaking views over the Roman Forum. The scale and beauty of the sculptures cannot be overstated and we were lucky enough to visit the Michelangelo exhibit which... More

Although the layout is a little confusing (to access the cafe, for example, you want to make sure you're on the correct side of the top floor, which may mean you have to go down a floor and then back up a floor), this is definitely a worthwhile trip! Sculptures, paintings, tablets, ruins - this museum has plenty to offer.... More

We visited this museum and were stunned at the beautiful, ancient collection. It is a definite must see for anyone spending time in Rome. It took us two hours to walk through the museum and we took a lot of pictures. It can be confusing since there are so many parts and the guide is not very helptul. We used... More

History lover need to visit this place. It's full of everything Roman. Lovely statues. You can feel how Rome was like 2000 years ago.

One of my favourite places in Rome due to its stunning collection and the amazing view you have from the cafeteria. The underground will also surprise you.

We visited the Musei Capitolini because we had some spare time but I'm so glad we did. The museum is filled with murals and sculptures but what makes it really special is the lack of queues and crowds which are ever present at the more popular attractions. The museum is very similar to the equally impressive Palazzo Galleria Barberini and... More

Beware! They will sell you that expensive ticket ( which is valid for two buildings) at any moment, even a few minutes before closing. Don't expect the woman in charge to warn you. When asked for a replacement (tickets for the next day) they just said "sorry, we can't". Then asked for a complaint form and again, they don't have,... More
