Step back into Ancient Roman History on this combo tour of National Roman Museum and Diocletian Thermal Baths.

Housed in the beautiful Palazzo Massimo, a few steps away from Republic Square, the National Roman Museum displays one of the most important collections of classical art in the world.

Enjoy your skip-the line access and discover the four floors of the museum with sculptures, frescoes, mosaics and other ancient treasures dating back from the 2nd century B.C. to the 5th century AD. Following in-depth commentary from your guide that details Rome’s artistic heritage, you will explore perfectly preserved mosaics, ancient coins, jewels, and notable sculptures depicting a "Boxer at Rest", a "Discus Thrower", and a "Sleeping Hermaphrodite". Worthy of special mention are the detached frescoes from the Villa of Empress Livia, that depict scenes of a garden with various trees, plants, and fruits as well as birds and insects.
