  • Beautiful Palace with a lot of wealth in history, worth knowing, be prepared for huge queues or pick up a tab that sticks the queues

  • Located in front of the altar of the fatherland, a place of continuous passage, to the last day of stay in Rome, I discover that the Palace can be visited inside and also houses a Museum!! Surprised by a quick visit to the simple cost of 5 € (x Rome a really low price) and I admit I remain thrilled: I think this is one of the most beautiful sights that are there!! You enter and after covering the staircase divides into two: on one side we walk the halls until you reach the famous sala del mappamondo; along the other wing of the building there is the museum itself, chock full of works of art from around the world: paintings, bronze statues, pottery, fantastic works!! The thing that left me perplexed and a little disappointed is that it was a Saturday morning and there was just me to check them out!! Intrigued I ask for information and I find that pretty much the flow of people is always very limited, many do not even know that inside there is a Museum!! I don't know if it is not advertised for special reasons (palazzo venezia was the seat of the fascist government during the twenty years), this does not mean that this Palace and works within the company are invaluable, and I don't find it fair that extra reasons many cannot enjoy watching these memorabilia!! I hope that this museum is advertised and promoted as actually deserves ...
