Rome - Visiting Julius Cesar's Murder Place


Last time we left our one hour walk in Rome visiting Trajan's Column and the maine tourists attraction in Rome - the Imperial Fora.

Today, we will visit Largo Argentina and the Julius Cesar's murder place. All the itinerary was not long and we reached this place without long stops in about 30 minutes.

We all are fascinated by the life story of Julius Cesar and when I knew where the place of his dead and funeral fire are, I wanted absolutely to visit them. These are 2 different places. Here, in Largo Argentina, was the Curia Julius Cesar wanted to visit in the last day of his life even if he felt danger and was warned to be careful. He was murdered and left for some hours in Curia. The murders were so much frightened of their own crime that went away when they understood what they did to themselves (all of them were punished in short time). After that, the loyal citizens took the body of Julius Cesar in an other place. You will find it if you visit Imperial Fora. He was burned there even if it was stricktly forbidden to burn bodies inside the cities.

All the Argentina square is a big excavation site, and we come there from this side:

From Amalfi To Emerald Grotto, By Feet


Many persons come in Amalfitan Coast to have speial conditions for their favourite hobbies. Trekking, hiking, snorkeling, running etc - there is place for every passion here. During my walks, I often meet solitary persons or couples or groups of people. Somebody has even sleeping bags over their backpacks.

Personally, I never had the possibility to stay for 2 and more days on the mountains, but I have friends that do it regularly. So, if you want, you can think about this itinerary, too. There are many sources on the mountains and you can meet houses and even restaurants etc there, so you do not need to have great quantities of food and water with you.

It's always better to go with a local guide - there are many residents in Campania that love their moutains so much. If you want, you can write me, too, I'll give you the contacts. The only problem is that they rarely speak other languages except italian. But it's not mortal in any case.

One Hour in Rome - Trajan's Column


We began this walk near the central railway station of Rome, Roma Termini ( One or Two Hours in Rome, Italy) with the intention to see as much as possible in one or two hours we have between two trains, because we presume we have to continue our trip.

I said you, we can visit and see many interesting places and national treasures. Two of them I described you in the second post of this serie: Rome, Italy - Treasures Of The Art on Every Step

Today, we continue our adventure long the via Nazionale to the Trajan's Column and Altar of the Fatherland, the white monument with grey statue you see in the background of the photo.

Rome, Italy - Treasures Of The Art on Every Step


Visit Rome in one day is possible in sense that where you go, you always find something extraordianry and fantastic. In my previous post ( One or Two Hours in Rome, Italy )we began to walk in the direction of Largo Argentina where we have to visit the place of the murder of Julius Cesar.

There are thousands of ways to go there, but we choosed the most short one from Roma Termini. We will arrive there in 25 minutes and turn back in 1 hour.The view from Piazza della Repubblica arrives to the end of the street, so we have to reach what we see there very far.
