Located near the Tiber at the level of the Spanish steps, and opposite the inaccessible Augustus mausoleum, the Ara Pacis is a two-thousand-year-old altar in a modern jacket. Interesting, but overpriced because of the narrow temperature requirement...and because this is Rome. If you're on a...More

I do enjoy seeing the Ara Pacis, but after doing the VR exhibit on 6/29, I was highly disappointed. It's 20 euros which is a bit pricey for an event that lasts about 30 minutes. Second, you have to hold up the glasses in order...More

Museo dell' Ara Pacis has undergone massive transformation. There are many historica remains inside the museum including the underground portion. Worth to spend more time to listen to the details of the exhibits inside.

I enjoyed this, but it is probably not a must see for most people, unless you have an especially deep interest in Roman history or have been to Rome more than once. Also, note that it is almost impossible to take photos on a sunny...More

Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields
to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most
desirable neighborhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best

Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with
enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s
best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a
fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to
