    My husband and I went here with a guide, who gave great explanations. We walked right in, even though there were lots of people, but we weren’t squashed together unbearably, you were still able to move. Very worthwhile.

    The sheer size of the place and when you visit, you can appreciate just how advanced the Romans were in engineering design etc. And to think that most of it is still standing.

    The Forum shows the prowess of ancient Rome and how sophisticated they were. There are many sites within the Forum, so there is plenty to do and see.

    While there are some trees, protect yourself as Rome is getting warmer and warmer. Beautiful setting with the ruins of Julius Caesar’s palace. Again we had a guide helping us by pointing out the temple of the Vestal Virgins and explaining the process of being chosen and being buried alive if you lost your virginity.

    Very impressive and worth seeing: a large Piazza with two amazing fountains and some nice statues.
    Maybe the best square in Rome.

    There are so many churches in Rome to see, but we were passing by this basilica and it were amazed by how magnificent the place is. Worthwhile.

    This is an outstanding museum and a complete jewel. While the grounds are also lovely, it is the villa itself that is astounding for its richly decorated rooms, heart-stopping Bernini sculptures and collection of famous paintings, including those from Caravaggio, Donatello, Titian and Raphael. I happened to go when there was a special exhibit of the paintings of Guido Reni, and this was very well-curated.

    Compared to 8 years ago when we last visited, Trastevere has become way more touristy. Still, the lively evenings here with people having drinks in the small streets are lovely to explore.

    We visited this Castel in April 2022. It contains many interesting parts which are well worth seeing. The views across Rome from the top are outstanding and not to be missed.

    Always since a child wanted to visit Nero’s Golden House. Seems to now to be open at more times. It’s huge of course. Quite difficult to walk around ref the shingly surface, which is not helped by people allowing their children to dredge the surface with their feet. Obviously will take a huge time to archaeologists to find out all about the huge huge palace. The guide was reasonable if a little vague and unfocused. The easiest place to enter is almost next to the Coliseum Metro, otherwise you end up on a unmarked hike up hills and down dales. Two or three mins from the metro. Up into a park which is not so well kept. The way from Monti is baffling. Includes just signs for Rome zoo for some reason.

    I'm not usually very interested in sculpture, it's the part I generally skip in large museums. But the Musei Capitolini are quite delightful, it's masterpiece after masterpiece, mostly antique sculpture, and the setting is worth the visit for itself. Some rooms you can pass quickly, I also found the painting section wasn't nearly at the level of the sculpture one, but we very much enjoyed our visit with our 3 children. Don't miss the Palazzo Nuovo (which you access through an underground tunnel).

    Nice park with areas for entertainment and rest. We had the best time renting scooters to explore around it. Would go again.

    A beautiful palace, and an even better art museum. I went to the Borghese Gallery the day before, and as much as I loved that spot, the crowds were quite busy and the rules were strict. The Doria Pamphilj, however, was much more relaxed. It wasn't nearly as crowded (perhaps because I went in the morning), I didn't need to deposit my bag anywhere, and the staff seemed less overwhelmed and therefore a bit friendlier.

    An audioguide would probably be a good investment! There aren't any signs next to the pieces giving any context or history. Just simply the name of the artist.

    There's also an impressive collection here. Obviously, Velazquez's "Portrait of Innocent the X" is probably their most famous work. They have some early Caravaggio (my personal favourite), Raphael, Carracci, Titian, Brill, Lippi.

    Although the collection is probably not as extensive or well-known as Borghese, I think the gallery provides a competitive alternative. I would also argue the palace itself is much more charming, and overall more beautiful and better taken care of than its rival.

    The historic centre of Rome is simply incredible, with ancient history round every corner. Lots of the sites are within easy walking distance of each other.
