Museo della Civilta Romana

Museum in Southern Rome

Wouldn't you know it! The pick of the three seldom-visited museums on this weed-strewn rationalist square is closed for 'renovations'. But just in case it has reopened when you visit, don't miss the stunning model of ancient Rome, an impossibly intricate and vast model of the Eternal City in 5 BC. The rest of the museum covers Rome's overall history.
