    A really must-see when visiting Rome. Absolutely amazing. You can really feel the ancient vibes! Nice shops to eat around the alleys.

    Tip: Book tickets ahead, and book for an early slot. We got to enjoy the site with hardly any crowd. There are different tours/accesses allowed with each ticket type, and it can be a bit confusing. Just trust the staff to point you in the direction you're supposed to go.

    This was all a part of the VIP Gladiator Tour provided by Nicom Tours, Roman Forum, Palatine Hill and then the Foor of the Colesso where the gladiators did battle with the wild animals and prisoners. It was excellent and the 10:30 tour got you in before crowds got bigger.

    Amazing the history that is in the middle of Rome where people live normal lives. To walk thru Palatine Hill and think of what transpired over centuries is just aweome.

    Some great pizza options and great for people watching. This is also a great location to stay nearby as you can walk everywhere.

    Want to see the "other Sistine Chapel?" Stop in here! Beautiful church, not crowded, peaceful spot for prayer or reflection.

    Paintings are on the 2nd floor, sculpture is on the first. Raphael and Caravaggio are represented.
    Very crowded though.
    Couldn't really study the paintings without inconveniencing others.

    Wd had the chance to visit this area day and night. During the day it is quiet and quaint, but at night it bursts wirh energy and vibrant youth. Narrow walkways filled with patrons eating, walking, people watching, conversing, and jyst having a good time. It caters to younger crowds at night, but allows others to enjoy the electrifying atmosphere.

    Amazing place to visit (particularly on a hot day (it’s a constant 15c inside) and astonishing to realise how big this building was. Our guide was good but the information given was a little repetitive and the tour felt rushed. There is so much to see but you are shepherded from one point to the next very quickly. We brought up the rear of our group and loitered taking pics and looking at the incredible rooms / bits of fresco, and that worked for us. The VR was good. Think we’d have preferred being able to wander through in our own time, guided by info boards, but maybe that will come in the future.

    I have waited decades to see the statues in this museum. I had a heart in the throat moment when I wen to the hall of the she-wolf, and the iconic Romulus and Remus statue wasn't there -- ! There is a spectacular atrium filled with natural light.That statue is there -- along with so many other spectacular works. I was surprised (and delighted) to see an Artemis Ephesus (a nice example). To get to the Dying Gaul and other Roman statues, there are in a separate building (enter via a subterranean hallway). Great sandwich bar for a cheap lunch (and a beautiful rooftop terrace restaurant). Note: this museum is not air conditioned and has a long, hot walk from the street up to the entrance. Well worth the wait.

    So much fun! We rented out a rickshaw to ride around the park and also rented a rowing boat on the pond. We really enjoyed it

    The audio guide is the best - a scion of an old Roman/French family talks not only about the art but about growing up in the palazzo. I'm not usually a fan of audio guides, but this one is great. It's not a place to get in a bucket list of "famous" paintings, though they bill it a such with the mention of the Cravaggios and the Raphael.

    The most famous painting there gets little mention (but a great installation) - Velasquez' portrait of Innocent X. This baroque pope haunts the entire collection, from a bust in one of the first rooms to portraits in oil and stone throughout. the Velazquez portrait had a profound effect on both artists (like Francis Bacon) and filmmakers (like Adrian Lyne and "Jacob's Ladder") By emphasizing psychological study over depiction of power, this portrait helped establish what we now think of as a fine-art portrait, and modern art as a whole.

    The curation is idiosyncratic, and what we took away from our visit was as much a story of 18th and 19th century collectors as it was of the Renaissance and Baroque artists on display. While you're there, check out the restaurant. They provided the best lunch we had in Rome, served with impeccable style in the loggia in front of the main palace.

    Beautiful city center. The one and only Rome. It feels like every building is historic and with great cultural meaning.
