Piazza del Campidoglio
The art and archaeological museums are housed in the Palazzo dei Conservatori and the Palazzo Nuovo and are connected by an underground tunnel beneath the Piazza del Campidoglio designed by Michelangelo.
The museums contain ancient Roman, Egyptian and Etruscan sculpture, artifacts, jewels and jewellery, coins, mosaics, tapestries and frescoes.
The collection includes the bronze statue of Romulus and Remus and the she-wolf and the fragments of the giant statue of Constantine.
On the second floor of the Palazzo dei Conservatori is the Pinacoteca with paintings from the 15th to 17th centuries which include Caravaggio's St John the Baptist and the Portrait of Urban VIII by Pietro da Cortona.
