A smooth walk inside one of the most interesting archaeological sites on Earth
Unified in one single 1/2 day tour we see the Origins, the middle Republican time and the glory of the Empire. A space in History that covers over 120 Centuries (if we relate it to the length only of the Western Roman Empire).
We will go even further in time, before Rome's birth, to acknowledge the possible reasons for its terrific accession that made Rome so powerful and determinant in everyone's lives.
No doubt, we will be amazed when in front of their works; surprised in discovering their habits; marveled in understanding their standard of life. Standard expanded to the entire population when you think that running waters from 11 aqueducts would converge into town to feed public baths, public toilets, fountains, and gardens; in an amount enough for the need of 1 million 500 thousand citizens.
From the Etruscan to the Papacy. All in one single experience, touching the same intense feeling of those who work to dig some treasure out. . .
The logic progression goes from :
- the Origin , with the Palatine Hill .
- Republican centuries with the expansion of the city at the bottom of the Palatine , inside the Roman Forum
- third comes the Colosseum , during the Imperial Era , in an authentic explosion of the growth of the city , embelished of
the most extraordinary monuments by all Emperors , longing for fame and popularity .
The sequence of the visit can have changes , specially if Augustus and Livia's House is opened and available , sheduled at fixed times . If the site is opened, we will appreciate this visit immensly . Here we have among the best preserved frescoes from the Empire ( see photo # 4 ) and a full description of Augustus , first Emperor , who changed Rome " from a city of mud and straw into one of stone and marble " in 41 years of his Emperorship .
