Not just where the Capitoline Museum is, the hill itself is worth the visit. The steps up are lovely, the statue (copy) of Marcus Aurelius is awesome (it changes colour as the sun hits it) and at the back, look out to the Colosseum and...More

Colle Capitolino is a top area to be in. Museums, great buildings, lots of art, lots of people, and importantly, fantastic views over the Roman Forum and other parts of the city. It's a really central location. You can sit down for a rest, or...More

Check out this incredible view of the Roman Forum with the Colosseum in the distance. No better way to capture the history of Rome.

The Colle Capitolino isn't that spectacular itself, but it is centrally located. You are neat the Capitoline museum, Vittorio Emmanuelle II monument, etc. I would use this place as a meeting spot some days to meet with friends. There also always seems to be something...More

Magnificent architecture, plenty of amazing statues and lovely views. Hunt out the wolf and Romulus and Remus - its smaller than you think. A place just to wander and contemplate Rome of days past.

From the terrace behind the museum there is a great view of the Roman Forum. The museum designed by Michelangelo is also very interesting.

The museum is excellent, history for everyone to enjoy. The location of the museum is what makes it special, perched on a hill with great panoramic views. There are also some great restaurants and shops down the front, wide staircase that are worth checking out....More

I highly recommend to climb the stairs, which are so broad so that horses could climb these too. On top the beautiful square with the impressive statue of the horse riding Marcus Aurelius. You have a good view over Rome and around the corner a...More

Capitoline Hill is impressive. This area, encompassed by the Monument to Vittorinano Emanuele II (the big, white wedding cake of a complex) and the Capitoline Museums, is generally thought to be "Capitoline Hill". In history, there were medieval as well as ancient civilizations located here;...More

Piazza Venezia / Ancient City
If all roads lead to Rome, then they all end here.
Piazza Venezia and the Ancient City are the very
epicenter of the Eternal City. Within a 360-degree
turn, Roman history unrolls in front of you, from its
ancient beginnings to its 21st century
transformations. Whether it’s those historical
playgrounds known as the Roman and Imperial Forums, or
the side-street shops, trattorie, and churches, this

It definitely is worth it, we didn't get tickets for the muesum either. The view is simply breath taking. It's a must in Rome.
