The Capitoline Musuem

 

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!

Happy Backpackers

Bogi is a great guide. She was everything you could want in a guide plus more. She was fun, cool, and the best part- knowledgeable. She really made the trip great. We got to the hostel late and she was able to rearrange our schedule so everyone could go caving. After caving we were picked up by Bogi (thank goodness because figuring out Hungarian public transportation is really hard if you don't speak Hungarian). WSA made sure to include super cool things- caving, thermal baths, bus tickets, escape games and the hostel. I would definitely do this trip again. Bogi was fun and flexible, we didn't have to stick to a tight schedule and we were able to do things that we wanted to do like the Liberty Statue. She is great, WSA is lucky to have her.
