Things to do in Rome

Are you traveling to Rome now?

Are you traveling to Rome now? Maybe it is not the first time for you, and this time you would prefer to explore it differently by skipping the usual Museums tours. If so,take advantage of its many temporary art exhibitions, national and international and mingle with the locals. Before you book, in order to skip the line, make sure you reserve in advance, especially if you are here onweekends as it might be busier than usual. Below I selected the most important ones for you to check out.

The Journey of Aeneas, from Troy to Rome


The story of Aeneas is presented through 24 works of great interest, datable between the 7thcentury B.C. through the full Imperial Age, lent by 12 different national institutions. The works are arrangedaccording to key thematic paths, such as the images of Aeneas, his father Anchises and his mother the goddess Aphrodite; depictions of the Trojan War; Palladio - talisman of salvation first of Troy and then of Rome - and finally the landing in Lazio and the foundation of Lavinium, where archaeological discoveries have given substance to the legend of the hero.
