Nice ruins with many cats to see on a sunny day if you are lucky, the sanctuary itself is great and does fantastic work to help look after the city cats. Never seen anything like this in a major city before, all the cats were...More
We stumbled across these amazing ruins right in the busy center of Rome. Although we did not do a tour, we quickly looked it up in our guidebook and were essentially did a self-guided tour. These ruins are a great opportunity to appreciate the historic...More
We really enjoyed our visit, the cats are friendly and love attention. It’s nice being able to donate to such a wonderful cause. You are allowed to pet and play with the cats. Many are older, or have health issues but they are well taken...More
amazingly caring cat people running a non profit shelter with heavy emphasis on geriatric and special needs kitties right on the midst of ancient roman ruins! I was not disappointed. I specifically sought this place out as one of "my top 10 to do in...More
I had been to the sanctuary previously and couldn’t wait to return again. It is a little hidden so please don’t miss this wonderful place. On your approach you will see some of the gorgeous cats of Torre Argentina, many have their usual spots on...More
They let you interact with all the rescue cats who love a fuss and a cuddle. So much fun! We visited the sanctuary en route toward the other sights. All the strays are well cared for and can live either inside the sanctuary or out...More
Like many sites in Rome, this one is a surprise to the traveler who comes upon it unexpectedly. My teenagers were exhausted with visits to historical suites. The combination of Caesars assassination site and a cat sanctuary was a win for everyone. Definitely a must...More
Absolutely the highlight of my trip to Rome, my daughter and my family really enjoyed seeing the cats. Good on the volunteers who keep this place running. If you wander to the stairs on one side, you'll see a pretty garden. Go down, and inside...More
This was such a neat find in Rome. This an archeological site that is now the home to cats. As a cat lover this was a must do on my list! It was a little hard to find the room where the adoptable cats (or...More
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa
drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.

I would email the center directly to ask if they accept food donations. It never even occurred to me to do so! They are very grateful for cash donations, which is how I contributed. I did their "Long Distance Adoption" which is basically a sponsorship : ) If you see my adoptee "Stealth" please cuddle him for me! Have a safe trip!

The entrance is at Largo di Torre Argentina, corner of Via Florida & Via di Torre Argentina. You'll have to descend some stairs (it'll look kind of like you're walking into the ruins of the square, but you're not, I promise). There's a door on the right and you can walk right in! There's merchandise to buy and the proceeds go to the cats and their upkeep.
