The Capitoline museums consist of two palaces, The Palazzo Nuovo and Palazzo dei Conservatori and their creation has been traced back to 1471, when Pope Sixtus IV donated a group of bronze statues of great symbolic value to the People of Rome.

The collections are closely linked to the city of Rome and most of the exhibits come from the city itself. The Palazzao Nuovo contains mainly fine selections of Greek and Roman sculptures. Portrait busts of Greek politicians, scientists and poets can also be seen in the Hall of the Philosophers.

The Palazzo dei Conservatori contains Masterpieces such as the huge sculpture of Constantine, Bernini's Medusa and fabulous paintings by Veronese, Tintoretto, Caravaggio and Van Dyck. Outside the palace, the 'She Wolf' with Romulus and Remus can be found. Please contact us for further information.
