The walls of this theatre were the fundaments for many Roman buildings. Its tarted when Emperor Augustus built a theatre for his nephew and son-in-law, who died in 23BC when he was 19. During the Middle Ages the theatre was in the posession of the Savelli family. In the 16th century Baldassare Peruzzi built a big palace here for the family Orsini with gardens that overlooked the Tiber.

Address: Via del Teatro di Marcello
Directions: From the Isola Tiberina follow the Ponte Fabricio and the connecting street to reach the theatre. You can also see the theatre from the steps leading to the Campidoglio.
