Villa Giulia Museum

Highly recommended
Pope Julius III's former summer residence (16C) is today a museum entirely dedicated to Etruscan Art and Civilisation. Its exhibits provide an insight into this civilisation which remains largely a mystery. The highlights of the museum (which can be prolonged by a visit to the sites) are the Sarcophagus of the "spouses", originally from Cerveteri, the Veii sculptures, the Ficorini cista and the Chigi olpe (wine vase).
