Full description
Meet your professional and licensed guide at the beginning of this marvelous half-day small-group tour and learn how the three most important emperors were connected to each other. Admire the Imperial Forum with Augustus Temple and follow the foot steps of Hadrian and Cesar emperors, learning how it was once the center of all religious, commercial and political life in Rome. 

Next, enter in the Pantheon -- the majestic temple of all Gods, commissioned by Marcus Agrippa in 27 BC. Marvel at the stunning entrance and massive interior. Then go to the Temple of Hadrian, now incorporated in a newer building in Piazza Pietra. See the sacred area of Largo Argentina, with four temples labeled with the first four letters of the alphabet (A,B,C,D). Discover where Giulius Cesar was killed with 23 stab wounds by a conspiracy in front of the Pompeio theater. 

Learn about the Mausoleo of Augusto, built in the 28 BC. It is the largest circular tomb with a diameter of 87 meters. At the entrance sits the Res Geatae, the biography of emperor Augustus. The tomb was built for all the imperial family of Augustus. Visit the Ara Pacis Museum, which houses the Altar of Peace inaugurated in 9 BC to celebrate the reconciliation of the Mediterranean area. This Altar was used from the priests to make sacrifices for the gods and is decorated with mythological scenes.
