Even for me, having been to Rome about 50 times, there is still room for new discoveries. This time it was - among others - the Casa di Goethe. I had been surprised by the exhibition which puts in context certain aspects. For example putting the famous painting where Goethe looks out of the window, actually to the place of... More

We kept this museum/house on our last day in Rome. We visited Keats-Shelley house day before and the girl at the cashier there told us about Goethe´s house and said- but our (Keats-Shelley house) is much better and nicer! Gosh, was she right!!! This Goethe´s house is not worth visiting, not much to see, only large library, some of his... More

I was curious to see the house known because there was living for a period of time in his life the Great german poet when he stayed at Rome. It was the only German Museum on foreign land and the house is managed by the Germany embassy in Rome. The entrance for visiting that place was 7 euro for person... More

I have not studied Goethe, but I was aware that he was German writer and poet who spent time in Italy. I had hoped to learn more about him, but this museum did not help! The first part of the museum was a temporary art exhibit. Although the museum advertises itself in Italian, German, and English, the temporary exhibit did... More

I went here several times in the past and then not any more. The thing is there was a very unpleasant director there - Ursula Bongaerts - whom I couldn´t stand. Among other things she wasn´t able to let begin the book presentations or performances with the necessary and proverbial german punctuality. Once we have been waiting for half an... More

I came here because of my interest in Goethe. Although there's plenty to see you don't really get a sense of this is where he stayed. Which was his work room, which his bedroom - what was his daily life like? The only connection with the great man I felt was how he complained of the noise in the street... More

Casa gi Goethe is where Goethe lived in Rome and now its a small and very nice musuem. It's keep in a crownded street and people pass through it and even notice it. So, ring the bell and visit it!

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighbourhood Profile
Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most desirable neighbourhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (21:00), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
