"Pyramids in Rome?" Ancient Rome Tip by sandysmith

Ancient Rome, Rome: 86 reviews and 140 photos

  Yes this is Rome!
by sandysmith

Yes there is a pyramid in Rome!
In a cemetry stands this monument of Caio Cesto a Roman pretor, tribune and a very rich man who could afford himself a sepulchre worthy of an Egyptian Pharaoh.
It is of the best conserved and most characteristic monuments of ancient Rome. This pyramid was built in 12 a.D. during a period of 300 days, 27m high.
Unfortunately it was Monday when we saw this and like most of the museums in Rome (except major ones like the Vatican and Colesseum) it was closed.
To reach here take the metro to Piramide and you can't miss it!
