Built in honour of Augustus?s sister Octavia (the abandoned wife of Mark Antony), this is the only surviving portico of what used to be the monumental piazza of Circuž Flaminius. The part we see today is the great central atrium originally coverei by marble facings. The rectangular portico enclosed temples dedicated to Jupiter and Juno, decorated with bronze statues.

Address: Via del Portico d?Ottavia
Directions: With the Theatre of Marcellus the whole area is an archeological site which can be freely visited.
