Piazza del Campidoglio (Capitoline Square) is considered to be one of Rome's most beautiful squares, designed in the 16th century by Michelangelo. The view seen here is from the Cordonata, the grand, low inclined staircase leading from the bottom of the Capitoline Hill to the piazza. The two large classical statues seen here are those of horsemen-brothers Castor and Pollux. Not seen here, is a bronze equestrian statue of Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius, which is further up in the piazza.
