  • Rome: Museo Nazionale Romano and Terme di Diocleziano Tour

    2. Rome: Museo Nazionale Romano and Terme di Diocleziano Tour

    Take a half day guided tour in the outstanding Museo Nazionale Romano Palazzo Massimo and Terme di Diocleziano. In one morning you'll see so many famous art treasures away from the tourist crowds and city traffic. Stroll in an evergreen wood once belonging to the Thermal Baths of Diocletian — what's more, that huge courtyard was restored by Michelangelo! Your guide will show you lost statues from the imperial palace — such as Myron's Discobolus (Discus Thrower) and the Old Boxer, richly painted frescoes from the Garden Villa of Empress Livia, colorful mosaics and tombs of many sorts and kinds! At the end of the tour, get ready for some science and astronomy, as you will walk in the Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli, housing a unique planetary sundial, built by 17th-century astronomers for the Pope to calculate the perfect sequence of day and night throughout the seasons. Enjoy the p...

    This tour was perfect for me and my partner to do the morning before we left Rome for southern Italy. The museum wasn't crowded at all and allowed us to marvel and ask questions about all of the Roman National artifacts and collections. After the museum we went to the ancient baths that also had a display of multiple family sarcophagi that were very well preserved. We finished up with a scientific twist as we visited a church that was established that was on the foundation of the entrance to the ancient baths. On the floor of the church was a sundial that had been installed to more accurately track the passage of time. Our hotel was close enough to not require the transportation that was provided but could be a good perk for someone staying closer to the Vatican or other parts of the city. Without the cost of the taxi, it would probably be better priced. A major benefit is it is fairly close to the Colosseum and the train station.
