The Capitoline Museums (Musei Capitolini)

This museum is considered the first museum in the world, understood as a place where art could be enjoyed by all and not only by the owners. The history of the museums can be traced to 1471, when Pope Sixtus IV "donated" a collection of important ancient bronzes to the people of Rome.
The total exhibition area covers 12 977 square meters. The building consists of three floors and many spaces. It was open to the public in 1734. The statue of a mounted rider is of the Emperor Marcus Aurelius and is the most famous Museum`s heritage. Many exhibit items demonstrate the history of Italy.

    In 1471 Sixtus IV Della Rovere donated a collection of ancient bronzes to the people of Rome, locating them on the Capitoline Hill. Open to the public since 1734, thus considered the first museum ever

    Плюсы: романтично, местный колорит, вкусно, обслуживание на высоком уровне. Минусы или нет: дорого, реально дорого, чтобы нормально посидеть надо 200 евро. Но это того стоит :)
