My 10 year old granddaughter and I stumbled on this museum when on a 7 day educational visit to Rome. Past reviews provide a good summary of the venue ... I would add that the exhibits are presented in chronological historical significance, and I found this an excellent learning opportunity. We did not have a guide, but simply read all... More

A stone's throw away from the Piazza Navona sits one of the most charming, yet least visited, museums in Rome. The Museo Barracco, a beautifully curated and choice collection of Assyrian, Babylonian, Egyptian, Greek and Roman sculpture, is housed in the so-called Piccola Farnesina or Farnesina ai Baullari. The collection was amassed over the course of half a century by... More

Museo Barracco, just off Campo dei Fiori, seems to have recently been renovated as the displays are clean, well-lit, and include descriptions in both Italian and English, and braille for the more important pieces. The Egyptian collection includes a very intact sphinx, said to possibly be Hapshetsut [most icons of her likeness were purposely destroyed]. Of additional interest are the... More

Staying in Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori

Neighborhood Profile
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 neighborhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
