"Capitoline Hill" Capitoline Hill - Campidoglio Tip by MichaelFalk1969

Capitoline Hill - Campidoglio, Rome: 84 reviews and 136 photos


The Capitoline Hill in its present state was created by Michelangelo. The square centers around the monument of Roman Emperor Mark Aurel and is limited by the three palaces on either side of the square - the Palazzo Nuovo, the Palazoo Conservatori and Palazzo Senatorio. Nearby you can find the statue "La Lupa" (easily overlooked) - the mythical she-wolf that adopted the twin founders of the city, Romulus and Remus.
