    Check out those mosaics though. Beautiful. Be sure to reserve ahead of time, it's free! (Parking is $15.)

    Several areas closed for renovation. Need advanced reservations usually, but I got lucky on a Monday afternoon just dropping in.

    Look up! Look down! Look at all the stunning gardens! There are patterns and interesting things to see literally everywhere here, the art itself isn't the only thing to not miss!

    great place to visit but an inconvenience that you need a car to get to the entrance or leave

    Beautiful architecture (but not a fan of antiquity art except the pornographic scenes in red ink vases). Almost worth the visit except for that damn $15 parking.

    I love taking some quiet time in the reading room looking out over the Roman gardens. The books are always fascinating and can delve you into the history of the culture.

    The architecture and the gardens at the villa are way more interesting than the art itself. Go outside and enjoy. (Though maybe I've been spoiled with the art available in New York and Paris. )
