Rome Sights


Crypta Balbi

Crypta Balbi Review

The fourth component of the magnificent collections of the Museo Nazionale Romano and visitable on the same ticket, this museum is unusual in its equitable apportioning of Rome's archaeological cake: a slice of Roman history—the crypt being part of the Balbus Theater complex (13 BC)—but also a slice of the largely vanished medieval Rome that once stood on top. The written explanations accompanying the well-lit exhibits are also excellent, making this museum much visited by teachers and schools.
