On Via Ripetta to the Mausoleum of Emperor Augustus and Altar of Peace

Zone: Campo Marzio

Via Ripetta is the third of the so-called 'Trident' streets. This 'trident' of three streets radiates away from the Piazza del Popolo, or People's Square – Via Ripetta is one of the three. Once it ran to the river quay. Researchers believe Via Ripetta was laid in Ancient Roman times, during the construction of the Emperor Augustus's mausoleum – the ruins of the mausoleum are still nearby. Ancient Rome features in our excursion in the shape of the ruins of the Mausoleum of Emperor Augustus, and in particular a remarkable example of Ancient Roman art – the Altar of Peace. Both of these unusual monuments were unearthed by chance. While the Altar of Peace has become a modern museum complex, whose bas-reliefs can be admired in detail through clear glass, the dilapidation of Augustus's mausoleum barely conveys the scale of its former glory. So allow us to let your imagination bring the mausoleum back to life – our excursion will tell you how it once looked long ago.
