Not too much is left of this temple today, except several portions of its foundation. What we can all see today is the place were the body of Julius Caesar was cremated. There are always fresh flowers at this site. His house was also very close by.
Stop by, take a picture and pay your respects. He changed the face of Rome forever and lots of people loved him as a king. He also had enemies and he was killed (stubbed to death) by a conspiracy of senators, including his adopted son, Brutus. He walked right by this place on the day he was killed. His funeral was held right here, facing the main square.

Address: inside Roman Forum, almost in the middle
Directions: this was a tricky place for us to find, but your best bet is to look for Temple of Vesta, keep going towards Capitol Hill and look for a small building with a metal roof. If you reached the Forum Main Square you are too far and you need to come back.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
