Largo di Torre Argentina, Rome

3.7
#48 of 526 in Historic Sites in Rome
See the spot where Julius Caesar was assassinated, as well as the ruins of several ancient temples at Largo di Torre Argentina. Walk around the perimeter of the square and enjoy the view of the well-preserved ruins and temples below street level. Read the signs around the border to learn about the history and developments of the sacred area, temples, and surrounding buildings through time. You can clearly see the staircase where Julius Caesar was assassinated, in the Theatre of Pompey. Though you cannot walk through the ruins, you can enjoy a view from all four sides if you walk all the way around. For cat lovers, there is a cat sanctuary as well, where the strays of the city are taken care of and visitors can play with the friendlier felines.

  • Entrance corner via Florida it goes down the stairs to the Roman cat help at Largo di Torre Argentina. The women there are super active animal welfare. They have more than 100 cats in care and care there. Be sure to visit and support. A MUST for every cat lover in Rome!!!

  • I have been there so many times, with a certain indifference. Perhaps because in Rome you see monuments, squares, even more spectacular views, which remind you of two thousand years of history. This wide is probably not among the most beautiful in Rome, but if you think how much they would pay in so many foreign countries to have something like this, you will be able to admire this beautiful example of ancient history
