A Beautiful Monument
Jul 2019
Situated on the side of the main road, this is a beautiful monument.
It may not be the biggest or the best but the fact that it is still there beside the road after all this time and you can walk around it etc gives a good feel for the history of the whole place.

Not much of the original left

This looks impressive until you realise it was built in the 20th century with some rather speculative use of a small amount of original material transferred from elsewhere. You'd never be allowed to do this today!

99% reconstructed; how faithfully to original?
Aug 2015 • Family
this monument should really be considered part of the ensemble of open-air roman relicts that dot the Aquileia landscape, and I have rated it for the ensemble (see also the sepolcretum, the forum, the river port and the roman houses, all part of that same circuit). However Trip Advisor gives one entry to each of the smaller attractions, so I will review it as a self-standing unit.
In that configuration, I would rate it only as 1 star, since there is so little of the original building that it is difficult even to figure out which fragment is not the modern reconstruction, and one is left legitimately asking how the whole mausoleum could have been restored to its present shape from the few fragments. it is easy to imagine a completely different structure still compliant with the little that was left scattered on the ground.
The explanatory panels are mostly dedicated to the use of the mausolea and why this one was rebuilt (a private individual paid for the effort), and are quite exhaustive. the text is available in english, too. For a few euros the tourist office near the main parking lot rents a hand-held device that guides you through this and the other archeological sites of Aquileia.
