A complex of ancient temples in Rome that are linked to the scene of Julius Caesar’s murder will be opened to the public.
The below-street-level temple ruins at Largo Argentina in central Rome are visible to pedestrians peering from above but closed to visitors.
For decades, access was enjoyed only by a colony of cats, the cadre of volunteers who fed them and, occasionally, archaeologists.
But Rome mayor Virginia Raggi announced that by late 2021, walkways will be built inside the site so tourists can stroll through the ruins.
Luxury jewellery maker Bulgari, which funded the restoration of Rome’s Spanish Steps, is sponsoring the work.
The ruins include a stone pedestal from the Curia of Pompey, the meeting place of senators, where Caesar was killed in 44BC.
