The oldest archaeological museum in the world gives you the chance to travel in time back to the origins of Rome reviving the glorious past of the eternal city. You’ll “meet” ancient gods and emperors, heroes and senators, philosophers and generals made of white marble or shiny bronze. Climb the slope of the most famous hill in the world, the Capitoline Hill, and walk in a masterpiece, the square designed by Michelangelo in the 16th century. Two wonderful Renaissance and Baroque buildings linked by an underground ancient structure that Romans named the “Tabularium”. This link contains a spectacular ancient Roman art collection.

You will look in the eyes the emperors that made Rome great. Meet the she-wolf with Romulus and Remus. See the foundations of the largest Roman temple in the ancient world, dedicated to Jupiter.

You will see the beautiful artifacts and also learn about the personalities and the elegant everyday life of the Roman upper classes.
