The collections found within the walls of this museum are every bit as beautiful, interesting, and important as those in the crowded art museums of Florence and of the Vatican, but strangely people seem to overlook the Capitoline. The fragments of The Colossus of Constantine...More

I enjoyed these museums a lot. I walked around for about 3 hours and didn't get bored. There's lots to see, there are signs explaining what you're looking at everywhere and it wasn't as crowded as the Vatican museums. Definitely recommended!

Fantastic exhibits but some of the staff need some serious customer relations training. Very surly and unhelpful. The audio tour is good value but it doest give you any directions to the next exhibit which would be useful.

Incredible collection of Roman art in a stunning building. Don’t miss the temple. The terrace cafe has a nice view over the forum. If you want to visit the other building, you have to use the underground passage. You can’t simply walk across the plaza...More

We went to quite a few museums whilst staying in Rome, but this by far was our favourite. The artefacts and exhibits were so interesting, the different rooms each telling its own story were fascinating. The location is great too, so close to the Roman...More

There was so much to see and take in that we wore ourselves out after about 2 1/2 hours. I used the iPad/audio guide, but found it confusing to use. I had to keep asking for help. Would be better if they found easier way...More

Piazza Venezia / Ancient City
If all roads lead to Rome, then they all end here.
Piazza Venezia and the Ancient City are the very
epicenter of the Eternal City. Within a 360-degree
turn, Roman history unrolls in front of you, from its
ancient beginnings to its 21st century
transformations. Whether it’s those historical
playgrounds known as the Roman and Imperial Forums, or
the side-street shops, trattorie, and churches, this
