  • I was in Rome with my student group and because the last day there was 'a day-off', I headed to visit this interesting, free museum. It was easy to find when you arrive by metro, just few blocks away ...  more »

  • A very interesting museum about the efforts that the Italians made to resist Nazi take over in 1944. Based in a former Gestapo prison it brings home the suffering of those who opposed Fascism. Check the opening times before setting out as they are somewhat elastic!
  • "The Museum that was a real life torture chamber and pathway to the firing squad" Last October I had been on a week's holiday in Rome, Italy visiting the marvellous ancient ruins and historical sites. On the last day I went to the "Museum of the Liberation of Rome". It was a little difficult to find and when I found it, it seemed to be just part of a typical Italian apartment block. Which it was. In 1943 the German SS turned this ordinary residential block into a prison and torture chamber. Anti-fascists, resistance fighters and Italian Jews were interrogated, imprisoned and even tortured in these same rooms. Many were then sent for immediate execution or to die in concentration camps. This SS base has now been turned into a museum and some of the cells have been restored. The displays were informative but upsetting and disturbing. This must have been a place of pain, terror and despair for so many people. I had spent the days immediately beforehand visiting the Rome Colosseum and the Forum and knew that great acts of brutality and cruelty had happened at all these locations. Yet this was all thousands of years ago and you can feel distance from it. The savagery that took place at Via Tasso 145, Rome happened in the lifetime of my parents and in an ordinary block of flats that you will find in every city and town in Europe and beyond. I would recommend that if you visit Rome, you should definitely reserve an hour or two to visit this site and learn, remember and mourn. Then vow to never forget and do whatever is necessary to fight present day fascism and Nazis - never, again, ever.
  • Good
  • A deep painful emotion of walking within the walls of the Museum in Via Tasso, walls that have witnessed the torture of the Nazis. This building was a prison, the infamous prison at Via Tasso. Moving the grafiti on the walls written by prisoners.

  • Very interesting. Too bad that I have no better Italian. And what a scandal that City Hall is not involved in the maintenance of a place of this quality.

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.
