Carcer Tullianum and Capitoline Museums - Combo Ticket

The Carcer Tullianum is the oldest prison in Rome, for many centuries a maximum security prison for Rome's enemies awaiting execution. Also known since the Middle Ages as Mamertine Prison, it is the place where, according to tradition, the Apostles Peter and Paul lived their last days before being martyred.

The experience can be enriched with a visit to the Capitoline Museums located a few steps from the Carcer Tullianum, whose birth dates back to 1471, when Pope Sixtus IV gave the Roman people a group of bronze statues of great symbolic value.
