"Mausoleum of Augustus" Ancient Rome Tip by WulfstanTraveller

Ancient Rome, Rome: 86 reviews and 140 photos

The mausoleum of Augustus is rarely visited because it is kind of out of the way and there is not really that much to see. However, for anyone interested in history and especially Rome, it is a significant place since it is the mausoleum of the very first "emperor" who transformed Rome from a republic, and ended the long period of civil wars that were ripping it apart. It is fascinating to know that this person was buried here almost 2,000 years ago.
