This is the first time of three visits to Rome that I took the time to visit the Capitoline Museum and I am very glad I did. Inside you will find a wealth of artifacts, artwork and history. The building itself has stories to tell of ancient Rome and the running of an empire. The art works on disdlay include the original of the equestrian statue of Marcus Aurelius, the She-Wolf, Hercules (many variations), reliefs of Marcus Aurelius (with Commodus removed), the Dying Gaul (a truly fascinating and moving piece) and many others. You get to see the original foundation of the Temple of Jupiter. The view of the Forum from the Tabularium is also spectacular. The admission price is reasonable and the history contained in these buildings makes the place a bargain. The floor plan is rather confusing though and be prepared to be asked to show various guards your tickets numerous times as you make your way through the various displays.
