Overview
More
The creation of the Capitoline Museums has been traced back to 1471, when Pope Sixtus IV donated a group of bronze statues of great symbolic value to the People of Rome. The collections are closely linked to the city of Rome, and most of the exhibits come from the city itself.

The museum is packed full of wonderful works of art and also boasts a wonderful viewing platform over the Roman Forum. All art lovers should visit this museum. There are many sculptures and paintings and it is conveniently located near Piazza Venizia's bus stop.

The museum is definitely worth a visit. But the cafeteria staff is an embarrassment. Based on the poor reviews here, it seems this has been a long-standing problem, and the displayed price list is like the traffic sign, merely a suggestion. It left a bad...More

I would recommend the walking audio tour for this one. There is sooo many statues and paintings some with little to no descriptions. Be aware of the route you take as, like us, you may find out after the fact you missed some areas!
