Piazza del Campidoglio. Imposing and panoramic, seat of the municipality of Rome, center of the city’s political power and tangible proof of Michelangelo’s skill as an architect. And if this was not enough, the home to the oldest public art collection. The museum was born at the end of the 15th century with a donation of bronze sculptures by Pope Sixtus IV. Walking between the Palazzo Nuovo and Palazzo dei Conservatori you will admire the sculptures of Ancient Roman: from the Capitoline Venus to the imposing sculpture of Marphurius, to the She-Wolf and Capitoline Brutus. Our expert guide will also lead you through the Middle Ages and up to the 18th century, in the company of Caravaggio, Guercino, Guido Reni, Pietro da Cortona, Rubens and many other artists.
