Trajan’s Market is always enjoyable for me because of its history. The English signage gets better as time passes. I especially enjoy the video and exhibit on The Dressel System of classifying amphorae. Yes, I admit to being a geek. The temporary exhibit of drawings...More

I was lucky it was cloudy and not so hot, starting raining. So, quick walk through less tourists. Beware migrants speaking to you on various reasons: sell smth., make picture if you, etc.

It's complicated and only fitfully understood so you need to be keen to read the various signboards and watch the explanatory videos which help greatly. The size of the building is noteworthy and means you need to be prepared for steps and different levels. So...More

There are so many historic site to see in Rome that most people can hardly scratch the surface during their first trip to the city. This site is for return trips. After a brief introductory video, you tour on your own. Most of the objects...More

quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its
cobblestone streets. The neighbourhood supports unique
and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime
