Vatican museums

Receiving millions of visitors every year, the Vatican Museums are among the most popular attractions in Rome. Showcasing the riches of the Catholic Church, they were established during the 16th century by Pope Julius II, and enriched with historical and cultural treasures by many popes throughout the centuries. The most famous is the breathtaking Sistine Chapel, flaunting intricate frescoes created by Michelangelo. As there are 1,400 rooms, chapels and galleries to explore, it makes it impossible to see them all in just one day. It would be best to consider a tour of the highlights, such as the Gallery of Maps, the Raphael Rooms and the Egyptian collection, if you don’t intent to return to see them all. 

Capitoline museums

The Capitoline Museums, located in Piazza del Campidoglio, are two imposing buildings owned and administered by the Municipality of Rome. They were established by Pope Sixtus IV, through his generous donation of valuable bronze artifacts to the citizens of Rome in 1471, rendering them the oldest museums in the world. The collection spans from ancient Roman times to the Renaissance era and includes renowned exhibits, such as the Capitoline Wolf, the Colossus of Constantine, and the Dying Gaul.

Galleria Borghese

The Borghese Gallery, one of the most acclaimed art museums in the world, is housed in Villa Borghese surrounded by heavenly gardens. The gallery showcases an impressive art collection spanning from the fifteenth to eighteenth centuries, featuring a large part of the collection that begun by Cardinal Scipione Borghese. The cardinal was an avid collector of Caravaggio’s works and the first sponsor of Gianlorenzo Bernini; hence visitors will have the chance to admire both artist’s marvelous creations.
