Some Curious Museums

An alternative route that will surprise you

The eternal city has so much history in its streets, that it is one of the cities with the greatest number of monuments and museums in the world. There are a lot of almost obligatory visits. But if you are in the city for sufficient time, or you fancy a more alternative route, we can tell you about some curious places. First of all, we recommend you visit the Casa di John Keats - Mary Shelley, (the house of John Keats - Mary Shelly, next to Piazza di Spagna. This place has become a venerable place for literature. As well as the story of the English writer who settled in Rome, you can enjoy the experience of romanticism through its heritage. Among other things, there is one of Oscar Wilde's manuscripts on display. Another interesting place is the Museo Nazionale delle Paste Alimentari (National Pasta Museum), in Piazza Skanderbeg a few metres from the Trevi Fountain. It will show you a different way to understand the history of Rome through its gastronomy. Finally, for lovers of the paranormal, on the banks of the Tiber, next to the Ponte Cavour, you can visit the Museo delle Anime Dei Defunti (Museum of Departed Souls). This museum is dedicated to the souls waiting in purgatory and to their earthly manifestations on earth. Quite an experience!
