Capitoline Museums Rome

two Roman art Museums facing each other on Capitoline Hill

Esquiline Venus, found in the Lamia Gardens.

Two museums facing each other, on Rome’s most important hilltop, the Capitol. Please note, I will be your private Professore, and fly in from Amsterdam, Holland especially for you. Best entry time at 9 AM.

Please note, this is a high level offer. Practicalities: I live in Amsterdam, Holland and do NOT run a travel agency.  I do however provide Fabulous international museum tours.

The plan is that you contract me for one or more days as your private ‘Professore’ and offer full transport to that city, plus hotel accommodation in the same place you will stay. We will spend quality time together in mornings and early afternoons.

1. Expensive option: You can hire me and I will fly in to be your own outstanding private “Professore”. At your cost, I will fly in especially for you and I will guide you after spending a hotel night. And then a very memorable museum visit or two.

2. Less expensive option: I know many first-rate art historian colleagues all over Western Europe. Therefore I know just the company/guide to arrange an excellent museum visit for you. I work very closely with these art history women and men and they are brilliant.

View across to the other museum, full of sculptures, on Capitol Hill. Pavement pattern designed by Michelangelo.

Saved from wind and rain: Marcus Aurelius sculpture. Cleaning revealed some gilded surfaces.

Detail of a Crucifiction by Metsu. How odd to find a good Dutch painting here.

Mozaics in all sizes and shapes. Here doves are drinking from a basin. Note the 3d effects.
