Lots of interesting things relating to the Napoleon family. No queue, no charge to get in. We went in because we were walking past and it was raining, and it was a good way to spend 45 minutes

Museo Napoleonico is located near Ponte Umberto. Entry to the museum is free. You will be satisfied after visiting the museum if you are interested in studying the history on Napoleonic wars and his family development. Recommended.

As romans, we are very spoiled with an extensive variety of must see places. I'am not in to the whole Napoleon thing but..WOW. The micro mosaics are phenomenal, as the rest of the collection. Perfect place for DESIGN. FASHION. ART. ANTIQUES, GRAPHICS lovers.

Whilst we are not really into Napoleonic History, we spotted this museo on our walk through the city, and being free on a hot day, was worth popping into. The rooms are well set out, and present a very detailed history of Napoleon and his...More
