Il Museo del Corso

I have been to the many of the churches Rome has to offer. I have seen the Capitoline Museum and the various exhibits advertised throughout the city. But some of my best hours spent in Rome were in the museum, Il Museo del Corso and the 400 exhibit it currently holds. If you would like more information, please visit this website

This exhibit offers the visitor a lot of information, but be prepared to spend over two hours reading the various facts about what life was like in the 1500s in Rome. Learn about how Rome transitioned from the Dark Ages to the Renaissance. Learn about the Pope relocating to Rome. Learn about various artists like Michelangelo. If you are looking for a history lesson on Rome, put a few Euros to good use and visit this museum which can easily be found a few blocks up from the Piazza Venezia.
