Guided tour of the Capitoline Museums

The Capitoline Museums, house the most ancient collection of antique statues in Rome. We owe this collection to Pope Sixtus IV, who donated a collection of ancient bronzes to the people of Rome in 1471. The Museums are located on the Capitoline Hill; they are composed of two buildings (Palazzo dei Conservatori, Braccio Nuovo) and an underground passageway (Tabularium). Our visit will begin at Palazzo dei Conservatori, where we will see the Lupa Capitolina (the bronze she-wolf nursing Romulus and Remus), Lo Spinario ("Boy with Thorn") and the Capitoline Brutus. Passing through several halls, all of them richly decorated with paintings, we will arrive on the first floor where we will find the collection of paintings. The Picture Gallery of the Capitoline Museums contains works by artists such as Veronese, Tintoretto, Rubens and Caravaggio. From Palazzo dei Conservatori we will also see part of the temple dedicated to the Capitoline Triad. Our visit to the Capitoline Museums will continue on to the other side of the piazza, in the Braccio Nuovo, where we will see statues like the "Dying Gaul" and the "Capitoline Venus".

The visit include :  palazzo dei Conservatori (Lupa Capitolina, Spinario, Capitoline Brutus), the statue of emperor Marcus Aurelius, the Tabularium, Picture Gallery (Caravaggio, Titian, Rubens...), the "Dying Gaul", the "Capitoline Venus"... Entrance to the Capitoline Museums 15 euro per person, visits available every day except Mondays.
