Visit the Incredible Casa Di Augusto - The Home of Rome's Greatest Emperor, Ceasar Augustus!

This ancient Rome tour unlocks the gates of the Caesar's Palace - the grand villa of Caesar Augustus - to give you a VIP experience of one of Rome's greatest ruins. Following an expert guide through closed doors, you'll see ancient living spaces and gape at 2,000 year-old frescoes as you'll learn the story of Augustus; from his rivalry with Mark Antony and Cleopatra to his ruthless pursuit of power, and even his tender relationship with his wife, Livia (who may or may not have poisoned him).

N.B.: The Casa di Augusto is closed on Saturdays. If you book a tour on a Saturday you will visit the Case Romane del Celio, the 3rd-century century villa of a wealthy patrician family who had the walls frescoed by some of the finest artists of the day. These lavish decorations have survived with astounding clarity and color, meaning you can still see the decorative figures, tricks of perspective, ceiling moldings and floor tiles. The Casa di Augusto is also subject to unforeseen ticket shortages. If we do not get tickets to the house on the day of your trip we will visit the Casa di Livia next door.
