Capitoline Museums Tour
Explore one of Italy's most interesting museums
Touch history with your hands and see some of the world's most famous artworks
Follow me on a fantastic tour of the Capitoline Museums, the oldest public museum in the world dating back to 1471, when Pope Sixtus IV donated to the people of Rome a group of bronze statues that formed the initial core of the collection.
Our visit starts from the collection of ancient sculptures that includes the busts of famous philosophers and Roman emperors, the statue of Gaul and the Capitoline Venus.
Many rooms are beautifully decorated with frescoes depicting the history of Rome and display ancient famous bronze statues: the She-Wolf, the Thorn Extractor, the Capitoline Brutus.
The main hall houses the equestrian statue of Marcus Aurelius, the head of Emperor Constantine and the imposing ruins of the temple of Jupiter.
Our tour continues to the Painting Gallery that features works of great importance, from Caravaggio’s (the Buona Ventura and St. John the Baptist), to Guercino (the burial of St. Petronilla) including large group of paintings by Guido Reni and Pietro da Cortona.
Extremely interesting also are the precious collections of coins, medals, gems and jewelry.
Our visit end in the gallery of Roman inscriptions that tell us so much about life and customs from ancient times.
