"Capitoline Museums" Capitoline Museums - Musei Capitolini Tip by tinyvulture

  Palazzo dei Conservatori courtyard
by tinyvulture

There are two branches, one on either side of the Campidoglio. We went through the Palazzo dei Conservatori first, and saw the famous Capitoline Wolf (6th century BC Etruscan) with its pointy teats. Out in the courtyard you will find the gigantic head, hand and foot of Constantine. Unfortunately the museum was closing early for a special event so we did not see everything, but you could probably spend all day in this museum.
