The Vatican Museum - While most people only go to the Vatican Museum to see the Sixteenth Chapel, there are a ton of other things to see there. There is a great collection of Roman statues as well as Egyptian, Roman, and Etruscan artwork. You should spend about 3 hours there and really take your time. Bring some food because everything is super expensive inside.
Entry prices are €14 per adult and €8 per child, but only for European citizens.

Vatican Museums, Viale Vaticano, 00165 Rome, Italy
