tomb of Ancient Rome’s first emperor will finally open to the public (Inglese)

Ostia Basilica

The tomb of Rome's first emperor is set to open after nearly 15 years of restorations

The Mausoleo of Augusto is dedicated to Augustus, also known as Octavian, who took the reins of power in Rome from Julius Caesar after his assassination and went on to effectively transform the Roman Republic into the Roman Empire. Augustus himself ordered the construction of the building more than thirty years before his death in 14 CE and was buried there along with other members of his dynasty, the Julio-Claudians.
