If you're near the Pantheon then a few minutes walk will bring you to the ancient republican temples in Largo di Torre Argentina. Dating back to the time of the Republic they are earlier than most of the other ruins in the city and this...More

Apparently this is the assassination place of Julius Caesar, but you wouldn't be able to tell as there is very little in the actual site, apart from lots of cats from the nearby sanctuary (which is probably more enthralling than this site to be honest.)...More

I am surprised that the place where Julius cesar was assassinated is being left unrestored and without any sign indicating this famous spot. It is now a cat shelter!!! Very recommendable but sad to see that it is being left in this state

Essentially this is an open block of the city where some ruins remain. The history is neat, considering Julius Caesar was famously assassinated here by the Senators and his friend, Brutus (Et tu, Brute?). If this was opened up into a tourist location, it could...More

This is a really cool excavation site but better seeing with a guide as a part of a walking tour who can show you what it all means.

While in Rome Largo di Torre Argentina was a frequent stop on my exploration of the city center. Julius Caesar was assassinated here. My Wife and I don't recall seeing any cats.

Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
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
