Rome City

Centrale Montemartini

Centrale Montemartini, most locals don’t even know about this extraordinary place. It’s a weird museum where the white curves of classical statues contrast with the black metal of old machinery, making for a truly surreal experience.

This disused 19th century power station is now home to one of the best collections of Greek and Roman statues in the world. It’s a fascinating example of industrial archaeology converted into a museum.

Colosseum

Perhaps the best-preserved of the monuments of ancient Rome, this huge marble structure was built to hold more than 50,000 spectators to witness bloody contests of might and the slaughter of wild beasts.
