Description

Lead by a professional, local guide, admire the classical sculptures and paintings at Rome’s Capitoline Museums on a skip-the-line small group tour. Before crossing the entrance of the museum, stop outside to admire Capitoline Square designed by Michelangelo and the equestrian statue of Marcus Aurelius.  See the emblem of Rome, the bronze sculpture  of the ‘She-wolf’, or the ‘Spinario’ iconic statue reproducing a young boy and paintings of Tintoretto, Rubens, and other masters.

Meet your guide at the entrance of the Capitoline Museums and begin this exclusive, private tour through some of the finest samples of ancient Roman works, such as coin collections, statues and both medieval and Renaissance art. 

The first part of the visit will take place at the Palazzo dei Conservatori, where, amongst the many masterpieces, you will admire the Spinario: the bronze statue of a boy removing a spine from the sole of his foot. You will also see the symbol of Rome: the bronze she-wolf nursing the twins Romulus and Remus, and you will get to know the story of the founding of Rome in full detail. 

On the second floor you will visit the gallery, which contains sensational works by some of the most notable artists, including Caravaggio, Titian, Tintoretto and Rubens. On the way to new wing of the museums, you could  enjoy a breathtaking view on the whole Roman Forum area. On the second part of the visit you will admire busts, inscriptions, sarcophagi and mosaics of Roman history. You will even become familiar with the history of Marphorius and the other 5 famous “talking statues” of Rome. This tour is ideal for history enthusiasts!
