  • Although I did not visit inside of it, its amazing view especially at night was really attractive.
  • A beautiful museum in the heart of the city with a beautiful scenery over the water canal. Tickets are required to enter this place.
  • Great views of Rome but there are many steps to climb to get there - but it's worth it.
  • An amazing building, must have seen
  • The museum is really nice, but the view from the top is simply spectacular! A bit pricey, though...15 euros
