Sites you’ll visit

  • Capitoline Museums
  • Baths of Diocletian
  • Not many people know that the Capitolini Museums were the result of the donation of the private collection of valuable bronzes by Pope Sixtus IV in 1471 to the citizens of Rome, a gesture that marked the birth of the first “public” museum in the world! The museumS are made up of two imposing buildings located on the Piazza del Campidoglio and house stunning art pieces from the Classic era and up to Caravaggio, Tintoretto and Rubens.
  • Being the largest of ancient Rome, approximately twice the size of the famous Baths of Caracalla, the Baths of Diocletian housed roughly 3,000 people and were built under the Roman Emperor in 298 a.C. The structure was mostly made of bricks, coated in marble and decorated with mosaics and sculptures, including a gymnasium, a library, and cold, hot and tepid public baths.

Tour description

Start your journey by visiting the Capitoline Museums, the oldest public art museum in the world, founded by Pope Sisto IV in 1471 with the donation of a collection of antique bronze statues. Follow the lead of your private guide and walk down the galleries of the museums to explore its impressive collections. Among the masterpieces housed within the museum, we’ll see the Lupa Capitolina, one of the iconic symbols of Rome. We will enter the Hall of the Emperors, the Hall of the Philosophers and the Hall of the Dying Gaul.

Continue on to Piazza della Repubblica to experience the Baths of Diocletian, the largest bath complex ever built in Rome. Follow the itinerary throughout ancient gyms, libraries and pools. End your tour with the stunning view of the Chiostro di Michelangelo and enjoy its quiet and peaceful atmosphere.
