More than five centuries old, the Musei Capitolini, the Capitoline Museums (which is a single museum) was the oldest public museum in the world, composed of three main buildings (the Palazzo Senatorio, the Palazzo dei Conservatori, and the Palazzo Nuovo) surrounding the Piazza del Campidoglio and linked by an underground gallery. The museum's collection includes some of the most valuable artefacts and artworks in the history of Rome, as well as the history of Europe, including the bronze statue of the Capitoline she-wolf and paintings by Caravaggio.

(Review in Dutch)

Erg mooi museum met een indrukwekkende collectie objecten uit het antieke Rome. Het oude gedeelte van het museum is gesitueerd in mooi gedecoreerde kamers. Hier is onder meer het beeld van Romulus en Remus te bewonderen. In het museum kun je daarna onder het plein doorlopen naar het andere gedeelte waarna je bij het uitzicht op het Forum Romanum uitkomt. Een echte aanrader dit, waar je erg lang fijn in kunt ronddwalen!
