    This is truly one of the best museum experiences we have had! The works of Bernini and collection of ancient Roman works is truly phenomenal! Wonderfully preserved Roman statues, frescoes and mosaics. And we had the good fortune of being there for the Rubens exhibit integrated into the rest of the above works. Exceptional! Arrange your tickets WAY in advance; and I don’t mean a few weeks before, since the number of visitors is limited. There is a “wait” line, but it is long and not good odds. BOOK AHEAD! You truly do not want to miss this. The grounds are also beautiful. Walking distance from the hotels on the Via Veneto (less than a half mile from the Pinciana gate). Also easy to get a FreeNow taxi back from the side gate near the villa. DON”T MISS!

    We loved the visit. Its a wonderful castle, very enjoyable event for the kids to use the map and explore the castle.
    The view from the top was amazing too.

    Full of great history, art and stories. We had a guide, which I recommend as you might not get as much if you're on your own. We had Rebecca Harden and she was quite extraordinary with her good humour, kindness to the elderly and depth of knowledge.

    I feel like this is a lesser known site. It is truly a hidden gem. Everything was so beautiful inside. Each room was just as beautiful as the next and the artwork is plentiful. I liked having the audio tour, so much information. I highly recommend you don’t miss it.

    Great place to see the sculptured images of Romans. We visited here after having been to the colosseum / Palatine Hill / Roman Forum so this was a very appropriate follow on from that experience. You could imagine these people attending the games. Give yourself 2 hours for the visit. Lovely cafe / restaurant on site also.

    This is the world's oldest museum, and the building itself is a marvel. The collection is outstanding and there is so much to learn about. Highly recommend.

    This museum is really something different. To describe it in details would just spoil the surprise. Go there and experience yourself, you won’t be disappointed! 🤩

    Palazzo Barberini Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Antica displays art from a wide array of famous painters--Caravaggio, Raphael, Reni... Here, you can actually enjoy the art without the crowds. The architecture of the place is breath-taking. Look for the staircase and the ceilings!

    Villa Farnesina was so special. A perfect Renaissance villa located in Trastavere 10 minutes from my hotel. I signed up for the English language tour they give every Saturday at 10 am and my guide-Sophie-was wonderful.

    What an amazing museum of Etruscan artefacts housed in the atmospheric 16th Century Villa of Pope Julius 111. No need to book, easy to get to - just a short ride on the 150F bus from Termini. Modern and laid out like a gallery internally & air conditioned. Not to be missed. Also Villa Pontiatowski nearby. It's fading splendour houses some interesting exhibits, particularly the last room with it's sumptuous grave goods from one tomb.

    This is an exceptional place to go if you like art and sculpture, and haven't quite seen enough whilst in Rome! You can easily spend 2-3 hours here. There are toilets. I recommend getting the combined ticket for the best value. It includes two other fantastic museums with art, sculptures and courtyard.

    My girlfreind and I visited this museum and it was amazing. Because we’re under 25 we only paid 2 euros each! The museum contains everything from classical art from Van Gogh, a butchered horse and the story behind J.R.R. Tolkien and his countless collection of stories.

    Signed up for tour in English and our guide provided great historical context for this renaissance villa. The gardens and main building facade that is hidden from public view is amazing with the inlaid panels from earlier times. Sitting atop Pinchon Hill the vista of old Rome spreads out before your eyes. Well worth the time and admission fee. For photos of the city a morning visit is recommended.

    I strongly recommend visiting it. Any penny spent on it is worth it. There are a lot of paintings, a lot of architecture, and a lot of experiments... Must be visit again.
