"Cordonata" Capitoline Hill - Campidoglio Tip by Tijavi

Capitoline Hill - Campidoglio, Rome: 86 reviews and 145 photos


This grand stairway that leads to Piazza del Campidoglio was also designed by Michelangelo. Unlike the nearby Aracoeli staircase that was made up of small steps, Michelangelo designed the Cordonata as a ramp, probably to allow horses and carriages to reach Piazza del Campidoglio.
