    Love the castle. A magic place where all good energies of the universe converge. Been here five times. Do NOT visit the bar. Chaotic service, no gluten free options. No will to make even the smallest effort.

    More than you could ever imagine, no point in more detail than in other posts. Best to preorder tix AND print them out to avoid problems.

    This palazzo has the most incredible art collection entailed by a far thinking Pope. The open staterooms are explained in a portable listening device , their are chairs to sit and observe ceilings and walls and clear markings to follow . The narrative is presented by a family member and some of whom have private quarters still with lovely red Ferraris parked inside a carriage entrance. You come for the vast floor to ceiling collection of art: Caravaggio’s , Durer, Bosch,Reubens, Titian, Velasquez and Bernini are all represented sometimes in multiple canvases. Lesser artists and sculptures are everywhere. The narrative has lots of pieces of information that keep you intrigued as you walk the rooms. They have a Cafe Doria on the ground floor which is quiet and refined for a coffee break , light lunch or afternoon pick me up . The service was impeccable just for a coffee and water. Highly recommended to see art up close with no crowds !

    The building itself is exciting and awesome.
    Museo offers a multiple collection of art.
    Mostly impressed by The Boxer. Of course also so much many other things to enjoy.
    It’s good to take time enough to enjoy the whole collection.
    By the way, I think I found the only one creation that has teeth 🤣

    A gorgeous palazzo completely full of beautiful paintings and some other artwork. Recommend including the Princess apartment. Friendly and helpful staff, felt more professional than at other sights. Not too crowded (9:15 on a Saturday).

    Small hidden gem in Rome, great for kids - this Roman senator's villa was found underneath other buildings in great condition. The guided tour takes you through glass-floor platforms above the excavations, and clever lighting and light projections show you step by step how things were built and what they would have looked like. It's about an hour, also includes a detailed explanation of the Trajan's Column which brings it to life. Tours are offered in several languages but the small space means you must book ahead. Our 2 languages weren't available so we went in Italian and we and our kids (ages 7-11) still got the gist of it. It's pretty fast-paced moving through rooms and lighting up sections, Strongly recommend!

    Top!
    Collection is unique and able to shed a light on the Etruscan culture but also on its commerces with Greece, thus being also very interesting the relationship between Etruscans and Greeks.
    Location is very interesting, in a former Pope residence and at the border of the nicest park in Rome.
    Personnel is of rare kindness and likes to help the visitor, the information/reception desk is particularly helpful and available. Same for the ticket office.
    You have the impression to be welcome and that they like their job. Pretty impressive and unique!

    Brilliant displays in a terrific gallery space. Excellent 20th and 21st century art. My compliments to the curators for the arrangements!

    Absolutely stunning museum with real treasures. Most of the art, mainly statues, were found underground in and around Rome and their stories are captivating. The architecture of the former power plant is quite interesting as well as the contrast between the industrial site of the venue and the ancient Roman and Greek sculptures. A must!

    A wonderful building, highly decorated, fantastic architecture and cratsmanship. The paintings and the frescoes are superb. We went on our own but I can imagine that a guided tour would shed light on the many questions that arose.

    A well-restored office/shopping multi-story building from Traian's day. By itself, it's kinda amazing. Two bonuses:

    - nice views of the forum from the outside

    - it houses the museum of the imperial fora, which includes reconstructions of the various fora over the years. So, if you are going to see the Roman Forum, you should *come here first* so understand what you'll be looking at.

    Studying the sights of my nearest area we stayed, near the main train station(Terminal), I pointed out gallery Barberini. I had studied the artworks it includes and thought it would be a good choice mainly because of the time available we had and the location of the gallery.
    I paid for the tickets at the entrance office, because I had not scheduled our visit. There were no queues and crowds. On the contrary, they were quiet with air conditioning in most of the halls, with very good lighting, without strange smells.
    We left our bags in special cabinets with a key and started the tour they indicated to us, giving us an information leaflet about the halls – art works.
    Ideal conditions to study the details in the works of art, without any intervention.
    I recommend visiting the Gallery because it includes great art works and the visiting conditions are the best, even on hot days in the center of Rome.
    In the end we bought small souvenirs from the shop at very good prices.
    Very good garden’s for a break also !

    Away from all the usual spots, this is something different for those seeking the macabre. The layout of human bones certainly makes it stand out, but the Parisian Catacombes are probably better.
