The Capitoline Museums have a lot of beautiful items in their collection. Bernini's bust of Medusa is a favorite piece of mine, and you can get so close you could touch it.

What a wonderful place! Their collection of sculptures is amazing. I’ve seen photos of their works but to stand beside them is thrilling. Very well displayed. Highly recommend a visit, with or without a guide.

On top of the hill, it is a bit of a climb but worth it. A great museum for learning the history of the city. Beautiful (and huge) head of Emperor Constantine (one of my favorites and a bucket list item for me) as well...More
