  • If the judgment should be limited to the pure structure would not be very positive: I found it quite distracting, with huge spaces are not used. A tour ticket desk that does not work, so that the tickets do them in what used to be, it is clear, only the case of Museum shop but which now has become the real Concierge Desk. There is no longer even the wardrobe, limited to the managed box where you can leave a backpack and free key on your way out, then close it back. Path difficult to decipher, especially when switching on the upper floors. But, but ... it is also true that in fact the soul of these structures are very content, which shows that you are housed. I go to the Macro to see ' Cross the street ', an exhibition dedicated to urban art, in practice the murales. Really nice, well made, because it is not limited to mere exposure and proposition of artwork but to rebuild in a clear and complete the birth, development and evolution and transformation of this form of expression. Nice double track on which scrolls the display: the urban art in the world, but also the urban art in the Italian capital, Rome. Interesting also the videos screened. So disappointed in the structure, but the view is worth a ten out of ten. Dont miss it. You can take pictures.

  • Off the beaten path, at two steps from the historical center, but still unknown to tourists. Entrance that leads to the center of the Museum, the canopy is impressive and original. The exhibitions are varied. On the roof of the Museum is located a restaurant frequented by employees of neighboring businesses 90%. Everything is buffet at will: starters, main courses and desserts, this allows to discover Roman cooking at a very affordable price... To taste something else than pasta and pizza. Everything is of avant-garde, even the toilets.

  • Guardiasala chatting loudly, whose only concern is to alert that the Museum would close by there for an hour, the caretaker who asks me to close the door when closing ... I don't think in another European capital would find a similar listlessness and so friendly. No brochures in support of the exhibition, stingy with cartouche of Keith Haring unreadable. No wonder over the weekend the place was deserted.

  • Very interesting street art but the cost of the ticket is too high compared to what you can see.
  • A must go museum, every first Sunday of the month they offer free entry to people with Roman residence,wich is great if you live in Rome!
  • Very interesting exposition as well as wide open spaces. The people are friendly and the guards are not intrusive. It's a good meeting place as well. The only down side may be its location, it isn't entirely in the center of Rome. It has good bus connections, though.
  • The building is stunning and (at least for the exhibition I was) was blending perfectly with it
  • I was disappointed by the MACRO. The fee was more than advertised and reception staff were dismissive, not stopping their conversation to serve me. The Anish Kapoor exhibit was exciting, but much of the rest was instantly forgettable. About half of the wings were closed it seemed. It was quiet when I visited, but the presence of guards chatting to each other loudly in the galleries made it hard to appreciate what there was to look at. I expect it would be better on another visit. I'd highly recommend the national museum of modern art instead - it is stunning.

Where to stay in Rome

For easy foot access to most of the city's main historical sites, consider staying in Rome's old town center. The area is conveniently placed for public transport, only a walk away from the city's main railway station. Accommodations here span all hotels sectors, from cheap hostels to luxury brand names. To avoid the steep prices and overcrowding of the town center, explore the hotels in the inner suburbs of Rome. They offer comfortable rooms and excellent food at a fraction of the price charged by the centrally located hotel chains. Another affordable option is the area around Vatican, which boasts a good selection of family-owned B&Bs.
