Villa Giulia Museum

Highly recommended
Pope Julius III's luxurious summer residence (16C) is today a museum that is entirely dedicated to Etruscan Art and Civilisation, its exhibits revealing much about this civilisation which remains largely a mystery. The highlights are the Veii sculptures (room 7), the Sarcophagus of the "spouses", originally from Cerveteri, the Ficorini cista (casket, room 12) and the Chigi olpe (vase for wine, room 15).
