We visited the Musei Capitolini because we had some spare time but I'm so glad we did. The museum is filled with murals and sculptures but what makes it really special is the lack of queues and crowds which are ever present at the more popular attractions. The museum is very similar to the equally impressive Palazzo Galleria Barberini and... More

Beware! They will sell you that expensive ticket ( which is valid for two buildings) at any moment, even a few minutes before closing. Don't expect the woman in charge to warn you. When asked for a replacement (tickets for the next day) they just said "sorry, we can't". Then asked for a complaint form and again, they don't have,... More

The pieces of the gigantic Constantine, the original Marcus Aurelius statue, and the view from the tabularium are worth the visit in themselves. It also wasn't terribly crowded, and it was nice and cool, so it was a great place to go for a couple of hours to see some nice sights and not be frustrated by crowds and heat.... More

A very large museum with many rooms of statues and fantastic art. But what you will remember the most are the huge head, hands and feet fragments of the colossal statue of Constantine. You can wander around here without being bothered by crowds. I enjoyed this museum more than he Vatican museums for that reason. The buildings on three sides... More

The museum worth a trip to Rome but watch out because even if it is written that is closed at 8pm they will kick you away even 20 minutes in advance, Italians like to eat and the idea to arrive late at home for dinner makes them angry. When you visit an Italian museum you get lost, it is not... More

We went here to be honest for the Air Conditioning! Ok, it was on our to do list but we had it planned for another day. It was a hot afternoon in June and there were plenty of people about. However the Capitoline museum had plenty of space so we weren't bumping into people (which was great). After about 2... More

I absolutely LOVED this museum, and everything in it. Full of ancient artefacts and fascinating sculptures, with more busts of famous Romans and Greeks than you can poke a stick at! My favourite sculpture is The Dying Gaul - beautiful! Also look out for the cute Latin plaques commemorating ancient Romans and their slaves, remarkable in their sheer numbers throughout.... More
