In general a stunning collection with good explanations (most of them only in Italian) which gives a good picture of Etruscan art and their history. You need not expect a crowd, only interested people go there. Unfortunately (like often in Italian museums) the masterpieces were...More

Housed in the beautiful Villa Giulia this museum houses important Etruscan artifacts. It is worth paying for a private tour with a knowledgeable guide. The Villa was built as a country retreat by Poe Julius III. The court yard, the gardens and the Nymphaeum are...More

Unfortunately, due to censorship practiced by Italian TA I'm not allowed to go into detail about the bad treatment you will receive from the staff. The collection and grounds are beautiful, but there is no documentation or guidance to help you learn about it. Don't...More

Having visited Tarquinia on a previous trip to Italy this was on my Rome bucket list. It’s a great insight into a civilisation that’s not often talked about. Small finds are exquisite & lots to learn about links to Grecian culture too.

last century’s haute bourgeois and still represents as
such in 21st century Rome. Need a break? The area has
several great sporting clubs known for tennis and
