Considering how important Augustus is in Roman history it is amazing that the Mausoleum has been ignored for so long. Work is ongoing and one hopes it will be somewhat restored in the future. For now, a 5 minute photo op on the way to Piazza Popolo or Spanish Steps is all you need.

You would think that the mausoleum to the first emperor of Rome would be a treasured building and well preserved. Unfortunately you would be wrong. Apparently it has been promised for many years to be restored but there are no signs of anything going on. Just overgrown with lots of weeds, such a shame. They really need to restore this... More

True, its pretty cool, but theres no way in, i think they're doing some work on it. Nice to look at. If you want some info on it, check out the Ara Pacis museum across the street

Mausoleum of the first Roman Emperor Augustus. He was chosen at the age of 19 to lead Rome. He is the one who built Rome to its highest peak. He ruled for over 40 years and died of natural causes. He was buried here along with his family. Rome was sacked by the Germanics because of their mistreatment from the... More

This is the Mausoleum of the first Emperor of Rome as such you would think it would be well preserved. Well you would be wrong. My first time in Rome was Jan 2001 and it was fenced in, overgrown with vegetation and in bad shape. 15 years later in October 2015 it looks even worse even though in the ensuing... More

For several years now there have been reports that this important archaeological site was going to be conserved and re-opened to the public. As of May 2016, the site is extremely overgrown with weeds; steps leading to the Mausoleum are crumbling away; there are some tiny trailers sitting there and a lot of ugly fencing, but no signs of activity...

An insult to the great historical dynasty of the Ceasars, hopelessly overgrown, derelict and not open....burial place of Augustus, Tiberibus and the whole family, ransacked in the 400's and still not a fitting monument. Come on Rome please sort it out

We can only guess that perhaps there is not enough money left over to restore this (non) attraction. Such a shame. There is absolutely nothing to see here but a sad, abandoned and deteriorating relic that is surrounded by overgrown weeds and an ugly fence.

Having been to Piazza del Popolo we decided to walk along the river and visit the mausoleum. Whilst the attraction could be impressive it was completely fenced off and no way to enter.

This big tomb, built by the Roman Emperor Augustus in the year 28 B.C. is located on the square named after him, near the corner of Via di Ripetta. It is a huge complex, very well preserved considering its age, but pretty neglected.

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighbourhood Profile
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 look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (21:00), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
