Ancient Romans use to call this area the Field of Mars because it contained an ancient altar dedicated to Mars, the God of War.

This is also where they trained the army.

In later times this area became part of the very heart of the city, hosting some of the most imposing pieces of architecture of Roman antiquity, including the Pantheon and the grave of Augustus, a huge Mausoleum!


The many epochs of Rome’s history (from the Roman Republic to the Empire) are superimposed and visible in this meaningful neighborhood.

A walk to discuss Roman architecture and Roman history in context: from the founding of the city to its rise to power as one of leading cities of the world, we will meet some of its most famous leaders there – Julius Caesar, Pompey, Augustus  & Hadrian.
