Rome Sights Beyond the Biggies - Clue Me In!

Jump to last reply

Mrs. Peabody and I will be in Rome for a week at the end of May. It will we the second visit for both of us and our first together there, and the first was more than 40 years ago, so we'll still do the standards - Vatican, Forum Palatine Collosseum, Capitoine, Borghese, maybe Ostia Antica.

What I would like is to get recommendations for the second tier of things to see. Are the museums for 20th Century and contemporary art worthwhile? Little museums? Is there an area of concentrated artisanal craft or art galleries to wander through after momentary Antiquity/Renaissance saturation? Are there likely to be cultural activities suitable for non-Italian speakers (music?) and how do we locate them?

Also, personal favorites or ideosyncratic recommendations will also be appreciated. (However, as Rome will only be part of out Italian trip, we will not need suggestions for daytrips out of Rome.)

Thanks!

AJ
