4 Museums for the price of 1

The National Roman Museum is composed of 4 museums spread around the city and all hosting the best collection of Roman art this city has to offer. Start off in Palazzo Altemps in Piazza Sant’Apolinnare 48, near Piazza Navona (closed on Tuesdays) and admire the collection of life-like marble statues made in the times when Caesar ruled. Walk to Crypta Balbi in Via delle Botteghe Oscure 31 (closed on Jan 1st; Dec 8, 25 and 26) showcasing a medieval crypt dedicated to the life and art in the city throughout the Middle Ages. While you’re there, stroll to Largo Argentina and find the open-air cat shelter nestled between columns and reliefs. The third museum is in Largo di Villa Peretti 1 where the Palazzo Massimo houses ancient art. The fourth and final gem are the Diocletian Baths in Via E. De Nicola 78 where one can enjoy walking through history under the warm autumnal sun.


A ticket for all 4 museums is a mere 9 euros and opening times are: 9am to 7:45pm.
