A guided tour of Rome’s Capitoline Museums which take you on a journey through the history of Rome and the epic characters who ruled the city.
Set on the historic Capitoline Hill, the museums are the best and most informative museums of Roman history and culture. Climb the monumental staircase up to the Capitoline Hill and you reach the perfectly proportioned, Piazza del Campidoglio, designed by Michelangelo and perhaps the world’s finest public square due to the perfect proportions.
Each side of the piazza are two palaces which host the oldest museum collection in the world. The palaces are connected by an underground passage, a 1st cenutry Tabularium, offering great views of the Roman Forum.
The collection includes important Italian art, vast sculptures, mosaics, busts of Emperors and is the perfect place to get acquainted with Ancient Rome.
After an intensive restoration in 2005 a new wing of the museum opened. Now it is possible to admire the 6th century BC remains of the Temple of Jupiter and the fantastically restored statue of Marcus Aurelius.
