To think that this building was in ruins until only 2002. An incredible Caravaggio Exhibition, and so many other things that surprise you. And to think it was once a house. You’ll need 2-3 hours so don’t go if you’re in a rush as you’ll...More

Museo di Roma is located near to Piazza Navona. You can find information relating to the development of Rome from Middle Ages up to present in this museum. Currently, Canaletto Exhibition is being held until later this year.

Some reviews describe this as an "OK to skip" museum, but right now they are having a huge Canaletto show that is fabulous. located at one end of the Piazza Navona, it wasn't at all crowded, either. highly recommended.

Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a
five-minute walk of each other, the
Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and
most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful
throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art
galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood
museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the
streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa
