Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Antica di Palazzo Corsini

Lonely Planet review

Once home to Queen Christina of Sweden, whose richly frescoed bedroom witnessed a stready stream of male and female lovers, 16th-century Palazzo Corsini houses part of Italy's national art collection. The highlights include Caravaggio's mesmerising San Giovanni Battista (St John the Baptist), Rubens' Testa di Vecchio (Head of an Old Man), and Fra Angelico's Corsini Triptych, plus works by Poussin, Reni and Van Dyck.
