  • Rome is the city of cats, and this archaeological sanctuary is also a sanctuary for some cats. There are many, volunteer association treat them, feeds them, castrate them and vaccinate them. Some of her cats have clearly been abused before, and the association gives them some comfort. We can adopt a cat and also just stroke them and leave small donation in Exchange for a memory. Very nice!

  • We got by accident lost accidentally ruins, where the cats walked around and sat around watching the world around. We went to the FA. on the side of the cat welfare ylläpitävässä in motion/established by the Ministry. The shop was to buy the products, which was supported by the volunteer activity for the benefit of the transport cats in Rome. Ministry of the State had a lot of bad condition of the cats: many had amputated her leg or ears, but also fit the cats had a lot. The volunteers spoke good English and they were translated to many languages of its activities on its premises to brochures. The movement proceeds/donations cats are vaccinated, sterilized, lääkitään, fed, and they have a warm place to be.

  • Me and my partner visited Rome in March 2016. This cat sanctuary was one of the highlights for me as I am a big animal lover. The only staff member was very friendly and had lots of information for us...  more »

  • Love this place. If you're a cat lover it's a must visit on your next trip to Rome. The location is also a site of historical importance, but the main draw is the wonderful cats and the people who work there. Entrance is free, but if you can, buy a shirt, apron, calendar or two and consider adopting a cat from there - you can do it long distance.
  • A nice selection of ruins, and lots of cats wandering around on the ruins. If you come between 12-6 you can go down and visit the shelter where the cats are fed and homed. It's fun to try and spot the cat on the pillars and walls!
  • The excavations in the centre are impressive, this host always inspires. It also pays host to a cat rescue centre which is always in need of donation. Many beautiful shops and superb restaurants abound here, there is also a ream stop, you require it.
  • If you are a cat person, then this is the place for you. In the Centre of Torre Argentina is a bunch of Roman ruins, including the ruins where Julius Caesar was shot. So what better thing to with them, then open them up to hundreds of stray cats! There is a cat sanctuary to one side that takes in stray cats, many of which live inside the building, but they also open it up to the ruins, and during the day you can watch, pet or count the dozen of cats just basking in the sun. You can't get into the ruins themselves, but you can interact with the cats going in and out of the sanctuary inside or sitting on ruins near the edge of the stairs and view platforms. We stumbled across it by accident on our first trip to Rome, and came back frequently with my students on our subsequent trip to the city. When I say Rome, this is one of the first things that my husband starts talking about. (To quote him, "Roman Ruins AND Kitties. Pure happiness.")
  • Well such a whole in the ground full of antique ruins. Nothing for me I see just old ruins but very nice made - you can go all around it and check from all sites for free if you´d like to.
