See the iconic Roman She Wolf at the Capitoline Museum; as well as original bronze statues donated by Pope Sixtus IV in the 15th century

The Capitoline Museums are a collection of art and archaeology museums situated on the top of Capitoline Hill. Founded in 1471 when Pope Sixtus IV donated important bronze statues and sculptures for the Roman people, these museums are set within 3 historic buildings and a beautiful piazza, designed by Michelangelo. Explore the museums to discover artefacts of Ancient Rome, marble sculptures and paintings.

Highlights:

  • Capitoline She-wolf
  • Hall of Tapestries
  • Chapel
  • Courtyard

Did you know:

  • The original square was designed by Michelangelo in the 16th century but the plans weren’t constructed until after his death so he never got to see them realized
  • The Capitoline Museums are the world’s oldest national museums
  • The Capitoline Hill is the smallest hill in Rome and was used as the city stronghold, the Ancient Capitol, on account that the hills were so steep and which granted an unprecedented vantage point over the River Tiber

Things to see:

The She-Wolf

This iconic bronze statue represents the she wolf suckling Romulus and Remus, the legendary founders of Rome. The statue dates back centuries (arguably some say 5BC and some the Middle Ages) and was one of the original bronze statues donated by Sixtus IV. It’s a must-see when visiting the museum and it’s probably one of the most symbolic of all Rome’s artefacts!

Chapel

A beautiful private place for cultural admiration this chapel was dedicated to the Patron Saints of Rome, Peter and Paul, and is decorated with stunning ceiling frescoes and a stuccoed vault, designed in the sixteenth century. A number of other religious paintings line the walls displaying the Virgin Mary and Four Evangelists can also be admired.

How to get there:

- Colosseo (Metro B)

So worth it - would 100% recommend and use again. It was so worth it. My sister and I went to Rome in September 2013 and bought the pass simply to have a vague idea of where to go and maybe get discounted entries/travel. We never once paid for any entry or travel on our 4 day trip due to this. The staff were incredibly helpful and the tours helped us speak to other tourists from different countries to trade tips on restaurants, where to go, when to go, etc. We agreed that the pass was amazing value: discounted (or free!) entry, queue jumps, tours, the tour bus and the free guides, maps and assistance made this pass extraordinary value. I'm a 20 year old British woman and met people all over the world, all different ages and several different languages benefiting from this pass. I will 100% buy this again when I revisit and recommend it to anyone travelling to Rome.
