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!
The most fun, exciting, educational, and craziest weekend I had during my semester abroad. You definitely get the maximum bang for your buck with WSA. WSA provided me with an unbelieveable weekend in Budapest. After hearing from my friends about their amazing experiences on WSA trips, I had to see what all the hype was about. I chose to take part in a WSA weekend in Budapest, and I loved every minute of it. The guide, Bogi, was the best! WSA is the perfect blend of an educational/tourist expereince while also allowing for sites off the beaten path as well as kickass nightlife. You won't regret a trip with WSA.Cooper Cohen, University of Notre Dame ~ University of Notre Dame, London, Spring 2015
