    The National Museum of musical instruments, is basically, near the Basilica of s. Croce in Gerusalemme, a few meters from Piazza s. Giovanni in Laterano from where you can reach it by foot. From Termini station you can take bus number 105, possibly 50 or tram 14 or 5. Reference station is Porta Maggiore. Tickets cost 5 euros and is open from Tuesday to Sunday (closed on Monday) 9-19. The collection is housed in the Palazzo Samoggia, formerly used as barracks of the Prince of Piedmont. The Museum is not big, but definitely needs a visit. In a specific way for the room that hosts a copy of the exception, the piano invented and constructed by Bartolomeo Cristofori in 1722, of which in original in excellent condition than the other two (in New York and Leipzig). Not only though! Among the rooms of the Museum, you will find harpsichords and spinets, Fawaz traversi and Clarinets, mandolas and guitars, a trumpet to Herald dating from 1461 and the famous Golden harp Barberini from the 17th century. There is also a small shop where to buy souvenirs and books. Recommended for anyone who is interested in developing wind and stringed instruments from the 15th to the 19th century.

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.
