Roman ancient history is strictly connected to the life of one of the most influential politicians in history: Julius Caesar. He was a great general and thanks to his military strategy, the lands occupied by the Gauls were conquered. His victory against his greatest enemy, Pompy the Great, put an end to the long civil war and started his dictatorship. On the 15th of March 44 BC, he was stabbed 23 times by some senators, and the events that followed his assassination played a critical role in the demise of the Roman Republic and the rise of the Roman Empire.
Our tour starts from the neighborhood where he was born, the famous Suburra, now known as Monti district, one of the most ancient and typical areas of Rome. We will walk through the narrow alleys of Monti while talking about his youth, habits and origins.
From Monti we will come out to the heart of the ancient city, where all the forums were built to celebrate the power of the Roman Empire and its rulers. Here we will discover how Caesar’s power grew until the dictatorship.
Our walk continues crossing Venice Square admiring the famous Altar of the Fatherland, one of the most impressive monuments of the city center of Rome.
The last spot of our tour is Torre Argentina Square, the place where Julius Caesar was assassinated in 44 BC.
