It's easy to read about this piazza in books, how Michelangelo had to work with existing buildings at odd angles, but until you see it in action you can't get a sense of just how stunningly elegant this square is! The steps, the shapes, the...More

Magnificent architecture, plenty of amazing statues and lovely views. Hunt out the wolf and Romulus and Remus - its smaller than you think. A place just to wander and contemplate Rome of days past.

If you are in Rome, in a hurry and on a budget, then this should be a place which you should come to visit, since it offers a wonderful view of the entire Forum, a square (Campidoglio) designed by Michelangelo and the location of prime...More

This is one of the 7 and most important hills in Rome. The wide staircase called Cordonata leading to the Piazza at the top were designed by Michelangelo. The place itself is like a museum and aptly houses museums too. Unfortunately, they were closed when...More

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
playgrounds known as the Roman and Imperial Forums, or
the side-street shops, trattorie, and churches, this

If we do not want to buy tickets for the museum is it worth only to climb? We are coming from Fiumicion to our B&B Bettini and then we want to start explore Rome, I was thinking about starting from Capitoline Hill - how long does it take?
