The highlights of the Capitoline and Victorian

The heart of the power of Rome: discovering Capitoline Hill, Capitoline Museums and the Victorian with a breathtaking view over the Eternal city

Since ancient times Capitoline Hill was a focal point of Rome. Here, in fact, there was the Mint, the Temple of Jupiter and the Tabularium – State Archives. It was where all the historical memory and Roman law were bound and for this reason Capitoline Hill was always felt crucial by the ancient society. Consequently, in the Middle Age the palace built on top of the Roman one became, as in an obvious transfer or power, the City Hall! And still it is. Since 1471, by order of Pope Sixtus IV, Capitoline palaces became a museum, too. The first Public Museum in history and Rome’s museum par excellence. Since then the collections have been added becoming vast with unique and incredible pieces such as the Emperor Marcus Aurelius’ colossal bronze statue for which it has been created a special set up with a transparent ceiling. You will see also beautiful rooms with Renaissance frescoes, ancient statues galleries and the splendid Pinacotheca! During the visit, from the Roman structures facing us the Tabularium and an unforgettable Roman Forum view! Crowning the visit we will go, by elevator, on top of the Victorian and from its 70 meters high we will enjoy an unusual city centre view! You’ll be at the top with Rome’s glory at your feet!

Meeting Point Option 1

We had two tours with RomeByLocals. Both were extraordinary. We did a tour of the Vatican with the Sistine Chapel (Alessandra) and a tour of the Borghese Gallery and Museum (Chiara). Both guides were very informative and well prepared for questions. They each had additional background information – both text and pictures. I had some physical limitations and both were very helpful and compassionate. A private tour is definitely the way to go. It was geared to our specific interests and at a pace that worked for us. Emanuele runs a thoroughly professional tour group – detailed information, transportation if needed, great communication and just a generally, kind person. He went out of his way to solve my transportation issues, and was cheerful. I can’t wait to go to Rome again and RomeByLocals will be the one I call.

  On our recent visit to Rome we rented an apartment near the Spanish Steps. The owner recommended using RomeByLocals for any tours we might be interested in. We could not have been more pleased with Cristina and the professional services we received during our stay. The company was in constant contact with me prior to our arrival and during our stay. They accommodated our wishes and made adjustments to scheduling due to one person in our party departing at a different time than the rest. We never felt rushed on our tours and Cristina was very knowledgable and provided a fun and educational environment for everyone in our party. I would highly recommend using RomeByLocals for any tours you may be interested in during a visit to Rome.
