On this 3 hour trip you’ll meet your guide at the top of the stairways of the St. Mary of Aracoeli Basilica, where you’ll begin your amazing journey via the background of the Capitoline Hill complex, including the Capitoline Museum and St. Mary of Aracoeli Basilica.
Your professional tour guide will certainly inform you exactly how the building on Capitoline Hill began, and how Michelangelo was appointed by Pope Paul III to design the square.
The very first square of modern Rome was created by the genius of Michelangelo, increasing on the Capitoline Hill, on the site of an old village and the place dedicated to countless temples to the Roman gods.
Get inside Santa Maria in Aracoeli, based on the ruins of the Tempio di Giunone Moneta. Its name derives from a legend according to which a sibyl anticipated the coming of the son of God, saying: Haec est ara filii Dei. This is the greatest peak of the Campidoglio Hill.
Visit the Capitoline Museum established by Pope Sixtus IV, and appreciate paintings by Caravaggio and various other masters.
From the top of the hill, you’ll have a panoramic sight of Rome that includes the domes of Sant’ Andrea della Valle and San Pietro.
