Rome doesn't only get bragging rights for its incredible history (at its height, the Roman Empire stretched to 2.5 million square miles), magnificent ruins and absolutely stunning cuisine, but also for its infinite amount of museums. What’s more, access to Rome museums is made easy with the Rome Pass Card (Roma Card) which, depending on the type, gives you free and discounted entrance to many of the city’s best museums. With so many though, where to start? Here’s a quick guide to some of the best museums in Rome. For Rome, art museums start with two of Rome’s most significant contemporary art museums, MAXXI and the Museo d’Arte Contemporanea. Both housed in impressive buildings, the latter hosts an important collection of post-1960s Italian art and the former, a permanent collection of 20th and 21st-century works.
A hidden gem and museum to visit in Rome are the Museo Nazionale dell’Alto Medioevo. This is a treasure trove of medieval archaeology and often overlooked by the crowds. The Borghese Gallery boasts one of the best art collections in the world and includes works by Titian, Caravaggio and Bernini.
The Capitoline Museums are an absolute must with great artwork spread across two palazzi divided by the Piazza del Campidoglio, which was of course designed by Michelangelo. Inside you can find Rome’s emblem, the bronze Etruscan statue of the she-wolf and suckling twins of Remus and Romulus. The beautiful Renaissance Palazzo Altemps is home to a fantastic collection of classical statues. Film enthusiasts should make for the Mussolini founded CineCittà, which is still claimed to be continental Europe’s largest film and tv production facility.
Although, technically not in Rome, it would be a crime not to mention the sprawling, 7 kilometers of 1,400 rooms (and who could forget the Sistine Chapel) that make up the Vatican Museums. It goes without saying, Rome museums are an absolute must.
