Piazza del Campidoglio

Highly recommended
Designed and partially built by Michelangelo from 1536, the square is bordered by three palaces and a balustrade overlooking the statues of the Dioscuri; in the centre Michelangelo placed the statue of Marcus Aurelius (today a copy stands in its place, the original is in Palazzo Nuovo). From Via del Campidoglio there is a view over the ruins of the Forum Romanum.
