    It's forbidden to sit on the floor and you can't put your stuff on floor as well. Wierd. This museum is really worth to see. Take a look at the city on the top.

    It's a great Museum. Probably one of the best organized museums ever. Go to the rooftop and order yourself a nice coffee after visiting the museum. Discuss what you've seen with friends. Enjoy Life.

    Beautiful! You have to climb a series of staircases until you think you're going to die to get to the top but the view is spectacular. Then ride the lift to the very top for a bird's eye view of Rome

    The tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Go to the top, even if you don't see the museum the outside patio has an amazing view and the church is really cool.

    Check out the unstoppable fires outside, beware of armed guards & strict staff - don't disappoint them! Kept in impeccable condition giving it a very majestic, regal vibe. Worth exploring inside too!

    One of the best places to see Rome from above. Take a tour in the terraces and then use the lift to the rooftop in order to see all the places in Rome.

    If you're a stickler for tradition, then climb the 320 steps to the top of the dome of St Peter's Basilica. It will offer you a breath of fresh air after marvelling at the magnificent frescos.
  • Sanne T.
    A very beautiful place to take a stop and enjoy the view. Specially on a hot day going all the way up there is a very cool spot on top of the stairs.

    Although it says no smoking, the staff smoke in the lift so if your a smoker you may be allowed also!!!

    Looks old, but less than 200yrs old. Rooftop view is worth the elevator price. Buy tickets ahead of time online to avoid line
