    An absolute must see when in Rome. Be stunned by Bernini's amazing sculptures. Make sure you make a reservation a couple weeks before you visit.

    Since you are aloud to stay for only 2 hours, visit the attractions and then, watch the rest. Attractions: Caravaggio room, Bernini's sculptures, Venetian paintings and Paulina Bonaparte (Canova).
