This is very close to Termini station and we walked by it numerous times. We finally went in one evening since it was open later than other museums. The history there is incredible and we often had a whole gallery to ourselves. We could spend...More
My wife and I visited this museum twice in one day in mid-October after reading about it in the Rick Steves Rome travel guide. This museum is less publicized than many of the more famous museums in Rome, so that even though it has an...More
Along with the national museum in Naples, this is the best museum of the Roman world. The art work, the re-constructed rooms, all are stupendous and yield insights and appreciation you can't get from the ruins alone. Not to miss.
the statuary and mosaics were nice but I've seen similar before, including at the palazzo altemps.. the frescoes on the top floor are the real revelations, colored wall paintings from excavated roman villas. very nice!
In Rome, Palazzo Massimo’s Priceless Treasures are in the category of things many visitors to Rome never see…at least not on their first trip. The Palazzo Massimo alle Terme is one museum out of four that comprise the National Roman Museum. The Palazzo Massimo is...More
This is a must for someone interested in Roman Archeology.
Absolutely spectacular. The Livia room is an unforgettable place. The boxer is equally impacting. And if you are into numismatics this is a treasure.
I visited this fabulous museum with Massimo of Storytelling Rome as my guide. The museum holds amazing pieces, most of which have been discovered nearby. The wall mural from Empress Livia’s country resort’s dining room is breathtaking. The remains of a Roman lunar calendar is...More
This is a nice, breezy museum of Roman Sculpture. The 2 highlights for me are the most famous: the bronze boxer and the Marble Discus statue. Well worth the price of admission.
While the Rick Steves book highly touts the place, he neglects the third...More
Amazing mosaics and wall paintings. Don't miss the video reconstructing the decorated rooms - shame they don't sell it in the shop.
The details on the murals are exquisite and you are left in peace to peruse them, very few people around.
Clean toilets but...More
This is a little-known museum which has a lot of "wows" inside. The first is a room containing most of the frescos from an underground room discovered in the 1860's and dating from the 1st century BC. The frescos depict a garden, complete with birds...More
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighbourhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighbourhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up
basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic centre. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
As far as I know the frescos and floors from the villa Livia are available at the museum all the time when it is open. Are you confusing the Museum exhibits with the audiovisual display which supplements the wall painting... More
As far as I know the frescos and floors from the villa Livia are available at the museum all the time when it is open. Are you confusing the Museum exhibits with the audiovisual display which supplements the wall painting still in place at the site of the villa Livia on the Palatine Hill? The only way to access the Villa Livia on the Palatine is to buy a SUPER ticket for the Colosseum/Palatine/Forum on the Cooculture website (sorry the system doesn't allow me to post a link).
The extra places included with the SUPER ticket (including the Domus Augustana & Domus Livia), are open alternate days - you get two entrances to the Palatine/Forum so you get to go on two days and can therefore see everything.
