This is an important monument, the epitome of the Agustan age, remarkably reconstructed and partally restored to recreate a visual feast of roman sculpture. The altar is displayed in a beatiful modern building. Downstairs when we were there was a fine photographic exhibition on the...More

The museum is costly for what you get to see. 13E or 11E for discounted tickets (under 18 or Roma Pass holders). There is a little background information, and short video and the main things is to see the Altar dedicated to the Roman goddess...More

The VR experience was a great way to feel like standing next to Augustus when inaugurating the temple. Great detailed explanation of the temple and a lively representation of a piece of history.

My favorite museum visit in Rome. This simple museum has an excellent video presentation, explaining how and why Augustus built this temple, and showing what it would have looked like with the marble carvings colorfully painted. The temple itself was discovered in the 1800's, and...More

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

Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields
to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most
desirable neighbourhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best
place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and
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
