Campidoglio refers to the area of Rome, Italy, located between the Forum and the Campus Martius on one of the Seven Hills of Rome that form the geographical heart of the city. The rich history of Campidoglio began when a temple was built on the site by Rome’s 5th king Tarquinius Priscus in the 500 B.C. Campidoglio, also known as Capitoline Hill, underwent many changes during the Renaissance when a large piazza was designed by legendary artist and architect Michelangelo in 1546. Campidoglio is one of Rome’s main attractions as it features beautiful Renaissance-era architecture looming atop medieval ancient ruins.
- Climb the 124 stairs up to the Santa Maria in Aracoeli; this impressive 6th century church offers great views of the Piazza del Campidoglio and Rome.
- Stroll around the Piazza del Campidoglio and admire the Palazzo Senatorio, an 11th century fortress that was rebuilt in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, offering a history lesson in the architecture of Rome.
- Visit the historical Palazzo dei Conservatori, one of the Capitoline Museums, to view the many works of art.
Campidoglio is one of the central features of Rome, Italy, and is easily accessible in a number of ways. The Colosseo station is the closest stop on the metro, and it is only about a ten-minute walk to Campidoglio. There are several bus routes that leave from the Termini Station and stop very near the Piazza del Campidoglio. Once there, Campidoglio is easily navigated by foot, although there are so many sights and structures to visit that it could take more than one day to truly explore everything this destination has to offer.
