30 Days in Rome: day 24 Musei Capitolini

After a lovely Wednesday morning relaxing in the Borghese Gardens with a picnic, a rowboat and Harry Potter, we walked across town to join the students for a long awaited visit to the Musei Caitolini. The Capitoline Museums are definitely among my favorites in Rome. The kids were thrilled to see the statue of Romulus and Remus, the bronze of Marcus Aurelius, the remnants of the giant Constantine, and the magnificent view over the Forum. And, of course, cappuccinos on the roof of the beautiful museum cafe!

  1. I went there when I went to Rome at 18 but I did not appreciate it nearly enough.

    • Corey, I feel that way about SO many things. Really trying to recognize and appreciate how amazing things are at this stage, and hoping F & LG will also, at least a tiny bit.
