An astute politician and brilliant military strategist Caesar powered Rome into expansion, decisively defeating enemies and winning the hearts and minds of the common people. Each successful war assured him of the undying loyalty of his soldiers, who followed him into battle after battle. His life and death, are the stories of legends with unions that include a love affair with Cleopatra. The contributions he made have echoed through history - including the introduction of the Julian Calendar in Rome, setting the year at 365.25 days, divided into 12 months. A plot to bring his supremacy to end in 44 BC resulted in his fatal stabbing by a mob next to the Theatre of Pompey

Your Tour of Julius Caesar’s Rome will delve into the archaeological roots of the city to follow in his footsteps. Discover Caesar’s place of birth in 100BCE - Subura, a district of chancers and sex workers where the Monti neighbourhood now stands - and established what helped propel Caesar from squalor to a global leader. Envisage Rome when several its iconic monuments were being built, including the Colosseum. Learn how Caesar famously built the Via Appia Antica and opened up trade to the East, signalling an era of prosperity.
