Colle Capitolino, Rome

4.7
#57 of 459 in Historic Sites in Rome
One of the seven hills of Rome, Colle Capitolino represents the heart of the historical city. Once the citadel of the first Roman settlements, today the hill has transformed into the grounds of the Capitoline Museum, home to important Roman artifacts. Atop the hill, admire views of the city down below. Due to the medieval and Renaissance palaces built around the piazza, few ruins of the ancient temples remain. Spend some time in the piazza, designed by Michelangelo, to get a feel for the historic significance of the site.

  • In one of ancient Rome's seven hills, the highest hill. So where was the Temple of the Supreme God of the Roman gods. Still Rome City Hall is located here. The highest Hill, has a beautiful.

  • I really recommend a visit here, take the road up the "stairs" Cordonata (that is the work of Michelangelo). At the top are two very large and great statues of Castor and Pollux, each with its horse. Well up on the square stands a great equestrian statue of Marcus Aurelius. The three great buildings houses today a great museum complex, which is well worth a visit. Go to the left of the Middle building you will find the sculpture of the female Wolf, Romulus and Remlus on the right side. Go down to the right of the Middle building, you get an awesome view down to the Roman Forum. Before you go leaving Capitol Hill, I recommend a visit to the Basilica di Santa Maria in Aracoeli who is very beautiful church.
