This is a great and interesting area of ruins of various buildings and temples. Its main link is that this is where Ceaser, Julius that is, met his demise. Very interesting and defeinitely worth seeing as you walk between the nearby things to see.
Its quite well defined and you can clearly see the footprint of the ancient buildings. Apparently the Forum Building on Via Sacra was being refurbished so the Forum meeting was held in one of the buildings here and this is where Julius Caesar met his...More
It is mostly "believed" that it is Julius' assassination spot but even if not, will recommend as it was also the sight of some Roman temples. Saw 3 cats there. It is very close to the Pantheon, so consider visiting this if you're there.
saw these ruins from the bus and stopped here the next day on the way to Colloseum. The ruins are impressive and i guess still.more work is going on and I guess there's more to learn
There are quite a few cats in the vicinity
We were walking north from the Tiber on our way to the Pantheon and found this site by accident. My wife was initially attracted by the many well-fed cats that populate it, apparently supported by an organization.
Reading the description posted on the wall, we...More
Interesting place of great historical importance (after all, Caesar was supposedly murdered here), but you won't find it on many tour guides. However, you can find a cat shelter inside the ruins, and if you're a cat lover, I strongly suggest to visit this place....More
We stumbled across this place in between two other sites. There are some pretty cool ancient ruins, apparently with some very important historical significance.
But all you really need to know is that it has cats.....check it out.
The name of the square comes from the Torre Argentina which means Strasbourg's tower. The original name of Strasbourg was Argentoratum.
In 1503, then palace was built on the square, including the tower.

In 2012, Spanish archaeologists identified this location as the exact spot where Julius Caesar was murdered. It is now a cat sanctuary. You can't walk around inside of the ruins, but it is still worth a quick visit.
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa
drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.

It is about 10 minutes by taxi, or 15-20 minute walk (about 1 mile). There is also public transportation very close to both locations but I haven't taken it to know how easy it is. I assume you're going to visit the cat sanctuary, and if so, it's definitely worth the trip.
