Capitoline Museum (Musei Capitolini), Rome, Italy
Piazza del Campidoglio 1, Rome, Italy 00186| Map |
Gracing the Capitoline Hill of Rome are the Capitoline Museums. The Palazzo Nuovo is filled with ancient sculpture, mosaics and busts. A glassed-in portico holds the river god Marforio, one of the famous talking statues of Rome. These statues were used to post political essays and other written work. A fun and unexpected part of the grounds is the Tabularium, an underground tunnel that connects the Palazzo Nuovo to the Palazzo dei Conservatori, the second part of the Capitoline Museums. The tunnel provides a spectacular view of the Roman Forum. The Palazzo dei Conservatori contains more statues and paintings. However the courtyard is what families will enjoy most, with oversized marble heads and broken bits of ancient statue, perfect for pictures.
