Right in the middle of the Forum you will visit the place where Giulio Cesare was cremated after he was killed by the Republicans.
From this year when you are in the Forum you can experience the visit of Santa Maria in Antiqua, what is friendly called the “Sistine Chapel” of the ancient times: this is one of the oldest churches in Rome, where the Byzantine and the Catholic cult of the Virgin Mary lived together.
You will be explained the magnificent paintings that date back form the VI century. After you walk out from the Roman Forum, your guide will lead you to the Trajan market and then to the geographical heart of Rome: Venice Square where the view of the biggest monument in the World, the Vittoriano will overwhelm you.
