Full description
Meet your guide at the entrance of the Capitoline Museums and start this exclusive private tour that will show you some of the most beautiful works of the Roman antiquity. You could admire a large number of ancient Roman statues, inscriptions, and other artifacts; a collection of medieval and Renaissance art; and collections of jewels, coins, and other items. The visit starts from the courtyard of the Palace of the Conservatives, one of the two historic seats of the Museum, where you will see the remains of a colossal acrolith representing Constantine. On the first floor you can see the Capitoline Brutus bust; the Spinario, a Greco-Roman Hellenistic bronze sculpture of a boy withdrawing a thorn from the sole of his foot; the Capitoline Wolf, a bronze sculpture of themythical she-wolf nursing Romulus and Remus, which has become the emblem of the Eternal City; and the terrific Castellani collection, which includes approximately 700 magnificent Greek and Etruscan vases. You will then pass to the second floor of the palace, where you can admire the Pinacoteca, the oldest public collection of paintings with works by Caravaggio, Guido Reni, Carracci, Guercino, Domenichino, Veronese, Titian, Tintoretto, Rubens and Pietro da Cortona. In addition, admire the frescoes and statues from the Renaissance and Baroque Rome. Going down to the ground floor, you will visit the exedra with the equestrian statue of Marcus Aurelius and appreciate the ruins of the ancient temples still visible in the structure of the building. Through an underground tunnel which crosses the Tabularium and from which you will be able to enjoy the magnificent views of the Roman Forum, your guide will lead you to the second historic seats of the museum: the New Palace. It houses statues, inscriptions, sarcophagi, busts, mosaics and other ancient Roman artifacts. Here, you will also be able to see the famous statue of Marforio, the Dying Gaul and the statue of Cupid and Psyche.

Tour was scheduled for 2.5hrs, but ended up being close to 3.5 as the guide was so passionate about the subject matter. The museum contains a world class collection of ancient Roman artifacts, but without a guide we would not have understood the background or relevance of the objects we were looking at. Highly recommend this tour for anyone is has genuine interest in ancient Rome.
