Musei Capitolini's plaza is a gorgeous place to take photos. It's worth the short walk from the hop or and off tour to stop. Peek behind the building to see ruins.

A last minute decision on an extra day in Rome, definitely worth it. Allow a few hours. There are options of a audio tour, still free to walk at own pace. Cafe and toilets on site. Great views from outside the cafe! Excellent photo opportunities....More

Having done a little reading around ancient Rome before the trip found this fascinating. Allow plenty of time for a visit.

Don't get me wrong, this will be a 5-star review were it not for the fact that one of the museums was shut for a very large proportion of the day. I want to make the point but it's utterly preposterous for such a prestigious...More

The collections found within the walls of this museum are every bit as beautiful, interesting, and important as those in the crowded art museums of Florence and of the Vatican, but strangely people seem to overlook the Capitoline. The fragments of The Colossus of Constantine...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
