  • Make sure you visit here while in Rome. The structures, building, landscape, culture, and most importantly, the history is all right here to learn from. There is so much to do in Rome and it begins all right here. This can be a great starting point to gain a lot of insight while learning the geography. Spent several hours in this area soaking it all in. You will not be disappointed!
  • A highlight of my trip, and a delight to experience, this clash of gods and machines contains some of the most stunning artifacts within a unique, juxtaposed environment. Easy enough to access from the B-line of the metro, arriving early will yield an intimate experience between art and observer. I cannot rate this attraction highly enough. If you have any appreciation of ancient statuary, please, I beg you to just go and experience this museum for yourself.
