Then it’s off to the Theater of Marcellus, a remarkable construction situated between the River Tiber and Capitol, before your tour guide leads you through the Jewish Ghetto, sharing the history with you as you go.
Next, discover the excavation area at Largo di Torre Argentina, the so-called “Area Sacra”. The remains of 4 temples can be found here.
