This mausoleum is very cool, and very important to the history of Rome. So much to see here, and so much to learn. Very important part of any visit to Rome

Let me preface this by saying I am a huge fan of Roman History and especially Augustus. I could not wait to see his tomb and having been waiting for this for years. But… I probably jumped the gun. While it is open, it isn’t “ready”. Meaning, much of it is still under construction and the only tours available are in Italian. I’ve done enough research that i figured I would be fine without the guide’s info, but I was wrong. It appeared that the guide was outstanding, so if you speak Italian it’s probably a great time to go before it gets crowded, but for English speakers, I would wait until it’s more compete. It’s also important to point out that there is extremely little - almost nothing- left of the original structure. It’s still cool, but Hadrians is a much more complete mausoleum.

Excellent tour in both English and Italian in the allocated time (1 hour). Admittedly compared to other sights it may not appeal to all but I found it fascinating to learn about this historic sight.
You will enter at the ground level to see the central cylindrical building and see the site currently being excavated ( Hadrian's ).
You then proceed upstairs to look down upon the site and hear how the site was converted to an outdoor concert hall in the 40s.
If you haven't seen the other main sights, or are pushed for time, you probably wouldn't miss this one. Otherwise could be worth a visit (E4).
Easy to get to from central Rome.

The building looks pretty impressive from the outside but I was a bit disappointed. There was not a lot of information and even though it recently opened it still looked like renovations are going on. If you have a lot of time in Rome its okay to visit but if you need to be selective this would definitely not be my first choice.

Very happy that the Mausoleum of Augustus is open to the public and was happy to get a peek inside. The site is not "ready for prime time," however. As of March 2022, the tour is only in Italian. While I speak Italian, it was sometimes hard to hear the guide because many people on the tour (who clearly did not speak Italian) were talking during the tour, this would likely be alleviated if there were language-specific tours or audioguides. The site is also rather noisy as you are walking on creaking temporary wooden platforms for much of the time, which further made it difficult to always hear the guide. There is minimal written information in English -- this needs to be significantly expanded, and provided in other languages as well. Much of the information can be learned from the website, which I recommend as it will improve the experience. We were required to wear masks, but there were perhaps 20+ other people seemingly wandering through the site (apparently not on a tour) without masks, and they had to pass through our tour group at very close quarters. For persons with disabilities, know that parts of the site are not accessible yet (elevator not yet installed), there is uneven ground, and a number of stairs.

Unlike other reviewers, we also knew that the tour was also in Italian, but if you pay attention you can pick up some of what they are saying, furthermore, there are signs posted in various places written in English that are very detailed. As well as this, if you ask the tour guide a question they will do their best to answer you in English. This is a perfect place to get the sense of scale of some of the buildings of Augustan Rome, and is highly impressive. If you're concerned about a lack of information, research the site beforehand as there is a new - very detailed- interactive website. This is a wonderful place to visit, and considering it is only newly open and still undergoing renovation, is a great experience.

Unlike other reviewers, we knew that the tour was in Italian so we read up on the site in advance. This is an impressive place that was a massive mausoleum, a sports arena, a concert hall and a private residence all different times in its history. Be sure to book in advance as the tours are only about a dozen people. Well worth it as there are signs in English along the way too.

If you don’t speak Italian don’t bother. Maybe the tour (included in ticket) is interesting if you can understand but there was hardly anything to see. A lot is still being excavated and it felt like a construction site. There is no tourist infrastructure (bathroom etc) you walk into what feels like a construction site to check in. It seems like more work should have been done before it was Opened for tourists.

I feel kind of bad leaving a negative review, since the people involved in this project are obviously very passionate about it. However, there really is barely anything to see here. I think the guided tour (which is included in the ticket) is really necessary to enjoy the visit, but unfortunately the guide exclusively speaks Italian. For non-Italian speakers therefore I would really not recommend a visit to the mausoleum.

Not a lot to see from outside the fencing, and it doesn't seem to be open. You can see a little more from the museum enclosing the Ara Pacis, but not enough to make it worthwhile.
