Il Campidoglio, detto anche Monte Capitolino (Mons Capitolinus), è uno dei sette colli su cui venne fondata Roma. La sua altitudine è di 48 m s.l.m. sull'Arx (attuale Basilica di S. Maria in Aracoeli), di 35,9 m s.l.m. nell'Asylum (attuale Piazza del Campidoglio) e di 44,7 m s.l.m. sul Capitolium propriamente detto (Palazzo Caffarelli). Il Campidoglio è anche la sede di rappresentanza del comune di Roma.
Una sella (Asylum) divideva la sommità settentrionale (Arx) da quella meridionale (Capitolium propriamente detto), una cui propaggine, la Rupe Tarpea, era il luogo da dove venivano fatti precipitare i traditori. Per la sua collocazione tra la pianura del Foro Romano e il fiume Tevere, in prossimità del guado dell'isola Tiberina, fu l'acropoli cittadina.

Beautiful square atop a hill, with museums on two sides and the town hall on another. It features a famous statue in the center, a copy as the actual one stands in the Capitoline museum in the square. There is also a beautiful fountain with statues on either side representing two rivers, and then a statue of Rome in the middle. As Michelangelo designed this square, everything is beautiful. Even the design of the tiles lining the ground of the square forms a beautiful pattern, almost like a flower, now so well known and recognized that can find it used as a pattern in jewelery.

This is a very nice square which isn't that busy like others in Rome. It's pretty impressive with the beautiful buildings around and a impressive equestrian statue of Marcus Aurelius which is actually a copy of the one which is in the museum on the square. The square is atop a small hill so the views from there are very good. I recommend visiting both day and night because it's that good.

A very nice place to visit when you are near the Colloseum and the monument of Vittorio Emanuel. The square has a nice statue and the Capitol Museum. It's worth a visit!

Great sights of Rome. Square designed by Michelangelo. The Townhall of Rome is located at this site. The statue of Marcus Aurelius is a replica of the one found at the Capitoline museums, and it remained untouched for centuries because the Catholic church believed it depicted Constantine the Great (benefactor of the Church) and not the one of a Pagan emperor

Actually one of the chillest places I went to in Rome: there is room to breathe and enjoy your surroundings for once. You can take in a lot of the forum without buying a forum / colosseum ticket, in case you were wondering.

My group didn't go to the museum here, but being able to see the old city government buildings was awesome. The statues outside the buildings were beautiful.

Visit the Piazza of Campidoglio and the terrace museum cafe for an amazing view of Rome. The museums of Campidoglio is a must-see.

This is a wonderful place to see, make sure you walk around the backside of this to see incredible views of the Roman Forum.

Wise building layout for grand approach One of many places in Rome to take a shot. Nice plaza with a lot of beautiful architectural elements. Crown people here sometimes , beware your belonging all the time. Anyway it's worth to walk around, atmosphere and surroundings are lovely.

One of the place people tend to miss whilst in Rome, apparently. Stunning monuments and architecture. If you've time, pop into the museum's atop of the stairs, very interesting.

Lots of things to see... but be aware that the staff starts closing the museum 15-20 minutes earlier than the actual closing... so rude... consider this when you buy your ticket. . Give yourself enough time...

Always a nice place to see and the museum on the place is nice too. Offering some shade and fresh air.
