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.
Please note: Due to the Rome Conference, the Capitoline Museums will be closed from 24 March 19.00 - 25 March; reopening on 26 March
- Capitoline She-wolf
- Hall of Tapestries
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:
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!
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)

The pass made things so much easier what with the 'jump the line' ability at certain locations. I would recommend the pass to anyone visiting Rome.
