The Hadrian's Mausolem (IInd Cent. A.D.), better known as Castel S. Angelo, is the biggest Mausoleum ever built in Europe, which became in the Middle Ages the famous Papal Fortress, other than prisons, in case of invasions, located next to the Vatican Burg. Other than the Rome Pantheon, it is the only great Vestige of Ancient Rome which is intact.
The Baths of Caracalla were the second largest Thermal Spa of the Roman Empire, veritable splendor of Rome, one of the seven wonders of the Eteranl City that could host up to 3.000 people at once. In the Summer time houses the Opera Festival.
The Appian Way starts its picturesque vistas with the Aurelian City Walls at the Appian Gate (IIIrd Cent. A.D.), the private Circus of Maxentius along with the unique Mausoleum of Cecilia Metella (Ist Cent. B.C.) and the maginicient Quintili's Villa, at the time privately owned by two brothers who were killed during the time of the Emperor Commodus (180-192 A.D.) on the Appian Way.
The Marcello's Theatre is a spectacular old vestige adiacent to the Portico d'Ottavia (Jewish Area), both done on the 1st Cent. B.C. and it is a smaller version how looked like the Rome Coliseum, not an Amphitheater but simlply a Theater done in Travertino Limestone. The Portico d'Ottavia was a huge temple named after the Octavian's sister, first Roman Emperor, where is now the historical district of the Rome Jewish Area.
