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!
Everything was so organized and the tour guide was AWESOME! They had everything planned out and I got a really good feel for life in the city. We even got to cut the lines for the Anne Frank House and Van Gogh museum. It was definitely worth the money and I would recommend to anyone looking for a fun filled weekend.Ben Swick, University of Dayton ~ ISA Maynooth University, Fall 2015
