These volunteers and their cats are worth a visit and support, not to mention the historic ruins in the middle of Rome.

NOTE - Actual stray cats. Some may be very friendly, some bit more feral or unbredictable so its wise to respect the animals. —— If strolling ancient history and baroque churches gets old, there are also ruins full of cats! An actual cat sanctuary for...More

Love this place! You can walk around the square and spot the cats chillin'! Also, you can go downstairs into the sanctuary and see the more friendly cats and kittens! Another free attraction with tons of history - Et tu Brute!

We loved our visit to the cats. It had been raining so we didn't see as many outside among the ruins as we might have, although there were a few, but we did enjoy petting the kitties inside. We had brought a cat scratcher and...More

The Cat Sanctuary is located in Torre Argentina. There are many cats there with surrounding ruins of Largo di Torre. A nice place for cat lovers.

Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a
five-minute walk of each other, the
Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and
most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful
throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art
galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighborhood
museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the
streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa
