The Capitoline Museums are a group of art and archeological museums located on top of Capitoline Hill in the Piazza del Campidoglio. The architectural plan for the space was conceived by Michelangelo in 1536 and executed over the course of 400 years. The museums contain a number of ancient bronze statues, including Emperor Marcus Aurelius on horseback (you’ll find a copy in the center of the piazza), stunning marble statuary and a collection of medieval and Renaissance art. After your tour, stop by the Terrazza Caffarelli for a light meal or coffee with amazing views.
