This is a surprisingly small statue and not very easy to photograph with any meaning as it is near the wall and on a plinth. The kids loved the idea of it, but wanted a closer look. Worth visiting but expectations certainly need managing.

This is the symbol of Rome, but the real statue is in the Capitolini. The wolf was made by the Etruscans and the babies were added through the Renaissance.

As previous travelers have stated, this is a very small statue of a she wolf suckling the twins Romulus and Remus. It is relevant to the founding of Rome and is therefore symbolic. Apparently this is only a copy of the original bronze sculpture as...More

It is not something huge or something that it will blow your mind, but it is something historic that represents the myth about Rome. You will find it at Capitolium place and Capitolium is something you have to visit.

The statute is nice but it is not a "must see". If it is along your planned route for the day, stop for 5 minutes to appreciate it, but I would not plan a trip specifically to the statute.

Piazza Venezia / Ancient City
If all roads lead to Rome, then they all end here.
Piazza Venezia and the Ancient City are the very
epicenter of the Eternal City. Within a 360-degree
turn, Roman history unrolls in front of you, from its
ancient beginnings to its 21st century
transformations. Whether it’s those historical
