A sight not to miss, this house is where Octavian Augustus spent the majority of his life and rule. It may also well be the most humble imperial palace in the history of Rome.
Adopted son of Julius Caesar, Augustus single handedly transformed the republican state and gave a foundation to an empire, which lasted for many centuries afterwards.
Considering the power he commanded, his actual abode is surprisingly humble. This fact did not go unnocited even by his contemporaries, who marvelled at the lack of marble decoration, and the simple layout of the building.
The House of Augustus is currently closed. Visit official site for more information.
