The famous piazza in the center of the Capitoline was designed by Michaelangelo. Climb the ramp stairway to the Capitoline, stopping to look back, over the city of Rome.
Rome is built on 7 hills. But the first Rome was built on this hill. Miguel Angelo transformed the old hill in a beautiful square named "Campidoglio"
On Capitoline Hill at the end of the Forum are the two Capitoline Museums. Some of ancient Rome's best art is on display here.
In your mind's eye place this photo next to the previous one to get an expanded view. (wish I had a wide lens)
One of the 7 hills in Rome. This one hosts the Capitoline Museum, in a square designed by Michelangelo. You can also go upstairs to Sta. Maria in Aracoeli (in you are fit enough ;P)
What's it called again? But it's so modest outside, you'd never guess it's such a wonder on the inside (page under reconstruction, more coming soon...)
Condonata Steps, Piazza del Campidoglio
These steps designed by Michaelangelo are the front entrance to the Capitol. Statues of Dioscuri, Castor and Pollux guard the top of the stairs.
