Borghese Gallery:

One of the world’s great art collections, the haul that Cardinal Scipione Borghese assembled in the early 17th century in his Roman garden villa includes Titian’s Sacred and Profane Love, a gaggle of Caravaggios and Bernini’s sublime sculpture Apollo and Daphne - perhaps my single favourite work of art in the whole of Rome.


Half circus, half sports arena, Rome’s most famous classical ruin is unmissable – especially now that they have extended the visitor route to the underfloor passageways through which gladiators and wild beasts made their entrances.

Ara Pacis:

In 13BC the Emperor Augustus marched home from three years of imposing peace on his formerly fractious empire, and the Senate promptly commissioned a monument to mark his achievements.

Capitoline Museums:

By the time the public was given access to the Capitoline Museums in 1734, popes had been amassing this peerless collection of artworks for some 250 years.

Crypta Balbi:

In the 1980s, archeologists got to work in this centro storico site, digging down through Renaissance and medieval layers to the crypta itself – not a crypt in the modern sense but the courtyard and lobby of a theatre built by the wealthy Spaniard Cornelius Balbus in 13 BC.
