A really impressive building on the via Nazionale. Home to lots of events and shows. We only had time for a quick view as we walked to the Monumnet Vittorio Emmanuels.

If the two exhibits we saw -- the photos by Gardin and "The Caravaggio Experience" are any indication, the museum does a fabulous job of making art accessible and a real experience. You missed the Caravaggio Experience, but as another reviewer wrote, watch for it and definitely attend if it opens again somewhere else! it immerses you in paintings, parts... More

We came for the photography exhibit of Gianni Berengo Gardin and eventually meandered upstairs tot he Caravaggio Experience. We suspect that this will become a traveling exhibition and if it comes to your city it should be at the top of your to-do list.

I was moved by many of these black and white photographs, describing a very humanistic, sincere and deep view of parts of Italy and Italians of the 50's-70's. Great place to visit on a hot day.

In Rome last month we decided to revisit this museum after having a great time here a couple years ago. We were not disappointed. The first floor featured an exhibit of Fernando Botero's depictions of, essentially, events reflected in the stations of the cross in "Boterismo." Really beautiful evocative works from this Mellin artist crossing boundaries and millenia. The Caravaggio... More

We went to the Caravaggio Experience which was really interesting. It was an in depth study of his work, light, character layout, biology, etc. It was great because later in our holiday when we saw Caravaggio's work for real, we were much better able to appreciate it.

The Caravaggio Experience is just that, an experience, an art installation which surrounds you with the work of Caravaggio. If you are looking to see original Caravaggios then this is not for you, there is not a physical painting in sight, but if it is paintings you want then there is enough of his work scattered among the churches and...

Its a increadible video and audio instalation; on entering we were fully immersed in an experience of multi-projection imagens, with fragances and music lasting 48 min. The installation is divided into sections each of which addresses a key theme related with Caravaggio! It is a powerful and totally original contemporany approach to explore Caravaggio geniality, a unique sensorial experience... 12.5€/person

We saw the advert all week on our holiday and at the last day decided to enter to see 'The Carvaggio Experience.' We paid an awful lot of money for a family of three and went inside hoping to see some of Caravaggio's paintings in real life. However, we soon discovered that the paintings were not really there but were... More

Staying in Monti

Neighborhood Profile
Monti
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighborhood just west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighborhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
