Your tour begins at the National Roman Museum–Palazzo Massimo alle Terme ticket office, located only a few steps away from Republic Square. Here, you’ll greet your guide, collect your skip-the-line ticket, and bypass the lines that snake around the museum’s entrance.

Alongside commentary that details Rome’s artistic heritage, you’ll admire perfectly preserved mosaics, ancient coins, jewels, and notable sculptures depicting a ‘Boxer at Rest, a ‘Discus Thrower’, and a ‘Sleeping Hermaphrodite’. See, too, the extravagantly decorated rooms that belonged to Empress Livia, and gain a comprehensive overview of classic Roman art’s rich panorama. Then, if you’ve upgraded to include a tour of the Baths of Diocletian, you’ll proceed to what was once the most luxurious bathhouse in ancient Rome.

Immerse yourself in the sacred atmosphere of Basilica of St. Mary of the Angels, incorporated into the bathhouse by Michealangelo in 1561, and learn about Roman social traditions. Following three hours of enrichment, bid your guide farewell at the Baths of Diocletian.

This was one of my favorite things...

This was one of my favorite things that we did for a few reasons. It was incredibly interesting to see all the different works of art and soak in the history, but it was even better because our guide was passionate about the subject matter. He talked about the different stories or legends and additional insights and explained the various pieces and it truly felt like VIP service.

Highly recommend. Our tour guide was highly knowledgeable. We were surprised by how immense the complex and buildings were. The baths must have been unrivaled in the world in their time. Our tour guide pointed out floor mosaics, frescoes, and awe-inspiring sculptures and provided historical context for our understanding. We loved Michelangelo's Basilica of St. Mary of the Angels the he incorporated into the bathhouse in 1561. This was a great tour!

My fiance and I had a phenomenal time on this tour. I don't recall the tour guides name but he was a tall, younger Italian guy. He knew so much about all of the sculptures and even gave us other stories of how they came together. I highly recommend this tour!

I would certainly go on this tour. You will be amazed at all the artifacts and frescoes and intact flooring that is here. That is just the beginning. There is so much to see and whomever your guide is will be fantastic as the other Viator guides we had on other tours were. I also was in awe of all the statues. Wow! Go on this tour!

My wife and I toured the National Roman Museum through Viator. We had a private tour with Damiano. He was fantastic. We were in Rome and Greece for 2 weeks, and had multiple guided tours, and Damiano was the best tour guide we had though we had many good guides. He is an expert in the field, and loves his subject. He works at a University in Art. He brought the museum and its exhibits alive for us. We highly recommend him and this tour. We saw Roman and Greek sculptures, Roman mosaics and Roman frescoes.The museum and this tour were amazing.
