Weird & Wonderful Rome

Rome might be so full of historic monuments and museums and art galleries that you won’t come close to squeezing them all into your tight vacation schedule. But even if it means forgoing a sight that’s arguably higher up on the tourist attraction food chain, I’m going to suggest that you take in at least one thing that would be best described as “weird.” Why? Because everyone who visits Rome sees the Colosseum, the Forum and the Vatican. To stand out in a sea of tourists, you’ve got to do something a little different.

Here are some suggestions for your tour of Weird and Wonderful Rome:

Cappuchin Crypt
Museum of Purgatory
Rome Crime Museum
Torre Argentina Roman Cat Sanctuary
Museum of the Sanitary Arts
Pasta Museum

If you’ve got a sight to add to my list, please let me know! And check out other sights on my tour of Weird and Wonderful Italy.

Thank you for this! I thought I had been all churched out after my first two weeks, but it looks like I still have more to see 🙂

Rome is an unending treasure trove of stuff to see and do. Enjoy.
