Campidoglio and Capitoline Museums
We will leave from the Capitoline Square which was designed by none other than the Church’s other “favorite” artisan, Michelangelo.
A three-hour-detailed visit while exploring in descriptive accounts one of the most famous and the highest of the seven hills of Rome.
Since 6th century BC, here lies the site for the Temple of the "Capitoline Triad" consisting of Jupiter, Juno and Minerva and drawing on Etruscan mythology.
The temple dominated the entire valley and under the scrupulous eyes of its Gods, Rome celebrated its victories.
Along with our expert guide, you will go over all the historical phases of the fabled hill with stories about the Etruscan Kings moving into the Republican and Imperial Era until arriving upon the birth of the Capitoline Museums in 1471, when Pope Sixtus IV gave a bronze group of statues of large symbolic value to the Roman people, declaring the opening of the ﬁrst public museum in the world.
The collections have a tight connection with the anecdotes and founding legends of Rome.
Some of the statues that can be found are the Capitoline She-wolf, the icon of Rome, the Spinario, the statue of Camillo, and Constantine’s Head and Marco Aurelio's Statue.
Not to mention the statues of the emperors , the foundations of the temple of Jupiter, Juno and Minerva, a journey through time of Roman art and Roman symbols.
Doing our very best to cover every angle and detail just as the masters wanted!
