While Piazza del Campidoglio has a distinct Renaissance feel to it (the palaces are a showcase for that period) and Michelangelo's beautiful design of the square make this a spectacular spot, it is also the hear of Ancient Rome. It was atop the Capitoline Hill...More

Michelangelo's 1536 design for this Piazza where Civic magistrates worked as the Heart of Rome turns toward the Vatican and away from the ancient Roman Forum. It was a clear symbolic/political statement. The Piazza design called for the Palazzo dei Conservatori to be restored and...More

This piazza was designed by Michelangelo, and is certainly one of the finest in all of Rome. The architecture is impressive, the views are beautiful, and there is a tremendous amount of history in the museums.

This is one of our favourite piazzas in Rome and it is designed by famous Italian artist, Michaelangelo. The day view and night view are different, but both are equally stunning. This is also a good location to enjoy the panoramic view of Roman Forum.

We visited at night after the building were closed. We had a guide so he provided us a lot of history. But it is a good spot to be able to get an incredible view of the city at night!

In a town with a piazza on every block, this one truly stands out. Michelangelo designed a masterpiece of balanced space. You feel good just walking around this area! TIP: Keeping walking South for 60 seconds for an incredible view from the Mirador de Campidoglio!
