  • Lavish and spacious spaces for a permanent collection is absolutely unique in Italy for quality of works and artists represented. An exciting experience to be repeated when you are in Rome. Also temporary exhibitions absolutely manic.

  • Beautiful art gallery. With the new layout is totally changed but for the better. Before was too classic and now is much more modern and appealing. Interesting the works present that day.

  • The magnificent building, which had a nice view of the art of the large, quiet in the halls of Rome and of the mountains. Similarly, the vilinälle was a variation of the Villa Borgese-through the Park walking Museum. The exhibition was great, and the Museum's collection seems to be quite a few beads.

  • Very nice gallery with many interesting aspects in it. There is loads to look at and most of it is very interesting. Famous paintings and a very good layout. 5e per person if you're younger than 25 or for some other reasons but im not too sure what they are. Very nice way to spend your day
  • We really enjoyed the new layout of the museum spaces. Kudos to the curator for creating a very visually and intellectually stimulating experience. The only reccomendation - seating in the various galleries to allow people, especially older people or those with mobility issues, the chance to sit and contemplate the works while resting. The restaurant area is lovely, too, but the food quality should be better, especially considering the prices. If those two issues were resolved, this would definitely be a five star experience!
  • Wonderful gallery with a nice mix of modern, contemporary and historical artworks. Great atmosphere, and a fantastic cafe. Do not miss the sunday buffet!
  • I'm still impressed. You will need an average of 2 hours to view this gallery. The building is white and bright. Super atmospare. Must see and visit gallery in the city
  • Absolutely fantastic museum of modern art showcasing both Italian artists and others such as van Gogh, Klimt, Monet, and Kandinsky. There are many exhibits. The 10 euro ticket may be the best bargain in Rome. We spent almost 4 hours there including a leisurely lunch at the museum's outdoor cafe. The cafe is slightly expensive ($4.50 for panini, $7 glass of wine) but well worth the ambience. You can eat at the cafe without purchasing a museum ticket if you please. Must visit when in Rome.

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.
