You will visit inside this famous monument along with a tour through the Roman Forum visiting the Temple of Vespasian and Titus and that of Antoninus Pius and Faustina among many others. The tour continues through to the Capitoline Hill and Piazza del Campidoglio, which is the first modern square in Rome thanks to the genius of Michelangelo, who in 1546 built the facade of the Senatorial Palace.
