Rome offers a wide variety of museums and archaeological sites that absolutely deserve to be visited. This card allows the access to archaeological sites such as the Colosseum, the Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill, the Excavations of Ancient Ostia and the Baths of Caracalla.

Also of great interest are the many museums about the history of Rome such as the Capitoline Museums, the National Roman Museum, the Museum of Roman Civilisation or the Etruscan Museum of Villa Giulia.

If, instead, you wish to get closer to the world of ancient and modern art, we recommend you the National Gallery of Palazzo Barberini or the National Modern Art Galler while, for what concern Contemporary Art, we suggest you to visit the Macro or the Maxxi Museums.

Points of interest

The National Roman Museum

The National Roman Museum houses collections themed on the history and culture of the city in ancient times.

The museum was established in 1889 (and opened the following year) to collect the antiquities of the city dated between the fifth century BC, and the third century AD. The Roman archaeological collections of the Kircher Museum and the numerous finds that were discovered in the city were added to it after the urban transformations of Rome determined by its new role as capital of the Kingdom of Italy, were initially intended to be exhibited in a "Tiberine Museum", which was, however, never created. In 1901 the Villa Ludovisi was bought by the State and the important collection of ancient sculptures was transferred to the museum.
