Colle Capitolino, Rome
(4.7/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
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. Make Colle Capitolino a centerpiece of your Rome vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Rome vacation planner.

  • Wednesday 26 October are climb to Capitol Hill for a walk, departing from the square. Just past the Arch on the right the road presents a continuous traffic of cars, going down to via Petroselli. Continuing the walk with the goal to get down the Hill on the opposite side of the Hill, keeps a continuous traffic of cars, greatly limiting the walk on the Hill. And then you can't fail to notice the degradation of green areas, sometimes shut off, that would be the views from Capitol Hill. In spite of everything, is one of the most beautiful walks in Rome.
