Tickets to "Trips to Ancient Rome" at the Forum of Caesar
Travel back in time and discover how the Forum of Ceaser used to look like in ancient times: take part in a unique night walk through imperial Rome and learn the history of the Forum of Ceasar, narrated by Piero Angela and accompanied by visual reconstructions, videos, music and sound effects that bring the words to life.
The story starts from the remains of the majestic Temple of Venus, built by Julius Caesar after his victory over Pompeii, and leads the visitors into the excitement of the Ancient Rome's daily life: officials, plebeians, militaries, matrons, consuls and senators strolled under the arches of the Forum, where the spaces between the colonnades were used as offices and shops.
To accomplish this massive site, Caesar had to demolish an entire neighborhood, spending a total of 100 million gold coins, the equivalent of at least 300 million euros. He also wanted the new headquarters of the Roman Senate, the Curia, to be built next to his court: the resulting structure still stands today and thanks to the tour's virtual reconstruction, you'll get to experience it as it appeared at that time.
Through Piero Angela's words, spectators will get to know more about this intelligent and ambitious man, idolized by some, hated and feared by others.
