Colle Capitolino, Rome

4.7
#53 of 252 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.

  • It is the square that makes the municipal seat of the municipality of Rome which, in my opinion, is one of the most beautiful I have ever seen.

  • really very impressive and beautiful to look at, it's worth a trip to Rome just to see this square

  • The smallest of the 7 hills and even less extensive, but perhaps is the richest in monuments and historical events of the city. Here would be the town of Saturnia, founded by the God Saturn, the first settlements followed by achei guided by Hercules, Romulus, the Sabines, the Etruscans, Gauls, then Imperial age, medieval.

Where to stay in Rome

For easy foot access to most of the city's main historical sites, consider staying in Rome's old town center. The area is conveniently placed for public transport, only a walk away from the city's main railway station. Accommodations here span all hotels sectors, from cheap hostels to luxury brand names. To avoid the steep prices and overcrowding of the town center, explore the hotels in the inner suburbs of Rome. They offer comfortable rooms and excellent food at a fraction of the price charged by the centrally located hotel chains. Another affordable option is the area around Vatican, which boasts a good selection of family-owned B&Bs.
