Highlights

  • Enjoy the central Piazza that sits between the museum buildings, stroll its long, elegant lines and appreciate the architecture of Michelangelo
  • View the historic sculpture of the she-wolf of Rome suckling Romulus and Remus, which tells the foundation myth of the Eternal City

Description

In 1734 Pope Clementine XII decided to make a significant collection of artwork and ancient sculptures permanently accessible to the people of Rome. With this magnanimous act, he created the world’s first museum. The Capitoline Museums (plural because it's in four buildings atop one of Rome's famous Seven Hills) has a fascinating collection of art and artifacts largely devoted to the history of Rome.
