Museums in Rome


Rome is an open air museum, but once in Rome you can't miss the occasion to visit some of the most beautiful masterpieces ever realized. Between them we found the Vatican Museums, with the Sistine Chapel made by Michelangelo and the marveillous Raphael Stanze, to which we dedicated a special section.

But there are many things to see in Rome! Here some suggestion for your trip. You will find also some guided tours that you can book directly with us.
