Private Tour of Rome

Ancient Meets Modern at Centrale Montemartini


Introduction: A Unique Fusion of Time and Space

Embark on a journey where Rome's ancient grandeur seamlessly merges with modern marvels. This exclusive tour offers a rare glimpse into two of Rome's lesser-known but equally captivating museums, where history is framed in contemporary settings, creating a juxtaposition that is both intriguing and enlightening.


I. EUR Neighbourhood: Mussolini's Vision of Modern Rome


A 20th Century Architectural Gem

Begin your exploration in the EUR neighbourhood, Mussolini's brainchild, designed to echo the grandeur of ancient imperial spaces. As you stroll through its wide avenues and monumental buildings, witness how modern architecture pays homage to Rome's illustrious past.


II. High Medieval Museum: Relics of a Bygone Era


Treasures of the Medieval World

Step into a realm where medieval artistry comes alive. Admire intricate artefacts, delicate fabrics, and exquisite jewellery that tell tales of a vibrant era. The museum's pièce de résistance is the reconstructed marble from an opulent ancient dwelling near Ostia. Marvel at the mosaic marble floors and walls, which offer a window into the lavish lifestyles of Rome's ancient elite.


III. Centrale Montemartini: Where Ancient Art Meets Industrial Might


A Power Plant Transformed

In the heart of Rome's first public power plant, discover the Centrale Montemartini, a museum like no other. Here, colossal steam boilers and diesel engines form the backdrop for pristine Roman marble portraits and statues.


The Enigmatic Antinoo and Cleopatra's Gaze

Stand face-to-face with the mesmerizing statue of Antinoo, Emperor Hadrian's beloved, and the captivating portrait of Queen Cleopatra. The contrast of these ancient masterpieces set against industrial machinery offers a viewing experience that is both surreal and awe-inspiring.


Rome's Hidden Gems Unveiled

This tour is more than just a walk through museums; it's an invitation to experience Rome's rich tapestry of history in settings that challenge and redefine traditional narratives. Dive deep into epochs of Roman history, from its ancient splendour to medieval richness, all set within the frame of modernity. Join us on this special journey, where every corner promises a story waiting to be told, ensuring memories that will resonate long after the tour concludes.
