Capitoline Museums

This tour will visit the Capitoline Museums—two buildings and an underground tunnel—which house the greatest collection of antiquities in Rome. Considered to be the first public museum, the collection houses iconic works such as the Dying Gaul, the remains of the Colossus of Constantine, the original bronze statue of Marcus Aurelius—the one in Piazza Campidoglio is a replica—as well as the foundations of the Temple of Jupiter Capitolinus. The museum visit will focus on Imperial artwork, the influence of Greek art on Roman iconography, and mythological subjects, as well as the styles and materials employed by the Romans.
