Colle Capitolino, Rome

4.7
#59 of 526 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.

  • Where rome came from... From the wolf... as a result, Michelangelo himself put his talent to the design of this square. It offers stunning views of Venice Square and part of the Roman Forum. Beauty in every detail. It is definitely worth a visit, and more than once.

  • It is a large and magnificent museum full of masterpieces from the time of the Roman Empire. Statues, low-connectives, sarcophagi, paintings depicting the significant events of this period. Moreover, it is here that one can admire the allegorical statue of the "Capitolina Wolf" , the one that according to legend adopted and raised the twins Romulus and Remus. It is really a very good time to immerse yourself in these last vestiges of the Roman Empire. Very well preserved and well presented, with an audioguide to rent at the entrance for the visit of this very large museum.
