The Capitoline Musuem
Posted by Andy Steves in on November 16, 2011.
The Campidologlio Palazzo, designed by Michelangelo, sits on layers of history that date back to the foundation of the Rome. An impressive bronze statue of Marcus Aeurelius stands in the center of the square. The Capitoline Museum is located at the Campidoglio. Inside you can see the original statue of Marcus Aeurlius, the statue of Romulus and Remus as well as many other pieces of ancient art from the Roman times. For anyone interested in Roman art and architecture, this museum is a must! For more information, check out this link.
Travel Tip: If you decide to visit this museum, take a break from touring at the Capitoline Musuem’s café. From the café, there is a beautiful view of the city!
This past weekend a group of my friends and I decided to go to Budapest, but wanted to go with a group because we were unsure of what we wanted to do and how to plan our trip. Booking the trip through WSA was the best idea we ever had. It was basically all planned out for us (excluding flights). It was great because there were plenty of things planned for us that were included in the package, but there was also a bit of free time for us to explore the city and do the things we were most interested in. I really enjoyed the caving and thermal baths we visited during our trip! Also the hostel that was booked for us through WSA was great and our tour guide, Bogi, was amazing! I would definitely recommend this trip to everyone and am happy to say that I will be booking more trips with WSA in the future!Danielle Maclain, Concordia University - Irvine ~ AIFS Richmond, Spring 2015
