Very cool to see something built in 43BC. Enough said. Pay the extra price when you purchase your ticket to include this venue or else you cannot get in. This area is quite a hike into the Palantine Hill area. Wear comfortable shoes and clothing....More

High on Palantine Hill, the house of Augustus is set aside from the main area, but the view to it will draw you in. Make the time to explore

Such a lovely site. Makes you wonder at the marvel of the engineers and builders from years ago and the power of the elite. Well worth a visit.

Piazza Venezia / Ancient City
If all roads lead to Rome, then they all end here.

ancient beginnings to its 21st century
