Capitoline Museums · Capitoline Hill · Vittoriano

The Capitoline Museums are considered the first museum in the world. Its creation has been traced back to 1471. Since then, the museums’ collection has grown to include a large number of ancient Roman statues, inscriptions, and other artifacts; a collection of medieval and Renaissance art; collections of jewels, coins and other items.

The existing design of the Piazza del Campidoglio and the surrounding palazzi was created by Michelangelo. The piazza is dominated by the famoues statue of a mounted rider, Emperor Marcus Aurelius.

Just a few meters away, piazza Venezia hosts the Altar of the Fatherland aka Vittoriano (National Monument to Victor Emmanuel II), a tribute to the first king of Italy after the country’s unification. The colossal monument, which is 135 meters wide and 70 meters high, is comprised of scores of majestic Corinthian columns and endless stairs, all carved in white marble. The top is crowned with an equestrian sculpture of Victor Emmanuel II cast in bronze and two chariots driven by the goddess Victoria: from there you can enjoy a gorgeous panoramic view of the city.
