Full description
The Capitoline Museums tour will help give face, form and expression to the gods and key personalities who inhabited the squares, temples and houses of Ancient Rome. You will be able to see the splendid bronze statue of Hercules, Mars in full military dress, the Drunken Faun carved from ancient red marble, and dozens of other extraordinary sculptures.

Make sure that you don't miss the original bronze equestrian statue of Marcus Aurelius, with excellent detail apparent in the emperor's beard, veins, and attire. You'll come across the famous remains of the colossal statue of Emperor Constantine, his head, hand and foot all remarkable examples of classical artistic technique. The Dying Gaul will touch you with his pained expression and show of courage. The museum also houses the busts of Cicero, Julius Caesar, Nero, Homer, Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle. The adjoining picture gallery is also rich in important works of art which include, amongst others, two beautiful paintings by Caravaggio. Your expert guide will help you to appreciate these works in all their meaning.

The two buildings of the museum are connected via a subterranean tunnel that runs beneath the imposing structure of the Roman Tabularium. From here, you can enjoy some of the best views of Ancient Rome. Admire the Colosseum, the Imperial Forum, the ruins of the Roman Forum, and the Palatine Hill. With your guide explaining the function of the buildings in front of you, you're sure to come away both educated and amazed by this enchanting experience.
