Every time I return to this museum and notice things I haven't seen before. This has such an incredible collection of Etruscan artefacts. Most of them are displayed with their context in mind and all have English panel explanations.

After a nice morning walk through the Villa Borghese gardens we arrived at the Villa Giulia Museum. The building itself is gorgeous, the exterior walkways are decorated with beautiful frescoes and the garden holds both a temple and nympaheum. Unlike many museums that are arranged...More

More Etruscan art than you will see in all other places combined. Almost overwhelming but stunning nevertheless. The whole pre-roman culture is presented in its art, artifacts and structures (tombs, etc...) almost to the point where you're ready to cry "uncle". The setting is quite...More

Impressive collection of Etruscan art! We learnt a lot about this ancient culture. Unfortunately, the audioguide was not as informative as the museum itself.

Strongly recommend learning about the Etruscan culture before visiting museum.

Young and well-to-do families are the street flavor of
Parioli. A new kind of Rome, this area is centuries
away from the Renaissance with its pockets of 1930s
palaces, tony boutiques, open-air markets and plenty
of coffee shops. Parioli was built as an enclave for
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
