An exciting adventure into ancient Rome, Mythology, art and history in a FUN way! Be where the Temple of Jupiter once stood and where the Roman gods and demigods roamed! If you are a Percy Jackson fan or just love Mythology or you want to discover the secrets of the Roman gods and demigods, then this is the tour for you! Should you bring the gladius or the riptide? If you’re a true fan, you know which to use in Rome!
The Capitoline Museums is full of the fascinating myths and legends which made up the famous history of ancient Rome. We all know the stories and characters of Roman mythology thanks to books like Percy Jackson. This is why we have created our ‘Heroes of Olympus Hunt’, to allow you to embark upon a quest through this historic museum and hunt for the characters of the ancient world. On this tour, you will follow the steps of Percy Jackson as you hunt for the gods and heroes of ancient Rome. So, what are you waiting for? See the faces of the gods themselves, from the great statues of Mars, Neptune, and Venus to the drunken fauns (remember not satyrs, you’re in Rome!) and the beautiful sculptures of centaurs. These artworks are truly the closest you can come to seeing the Roman mythology superstars as they were imagined over 2000 years ago.
Trace the steps of your favourite characters and see the gods and demi-gods who fill the halls of the Capitoline Museum: from Hercules to Polyphemus. You’ll see the famous She-wolf with Romulus and Remus, who were said to be raised by this She-wolf. Not only this, but you’ll be able to gaze into the stony face of Medusa, the terrifying, snake-haired monster who turned her victims into stone with just a glance. See if her power still works! And most of all, while in Rome, find inside the museums these very important letters: S.P.Q.R. Ring a bell?
No need to wear a purple shirt, old Camp Jupiter awaits!
