When I entered the building, the lobby gave me a choice of closed doors. Luckily, someone came out of the central door and told me the museum was within. I went up the steps, through the doors, and into a room where an Italian-speaking lady...More

Read about this charming small museum in the New York Times and decided to visit while in Rome. I am so glad we did as this small museum in Mario Praz' former home is full of treasures! Even though the guide spoke only Italian we...More

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
