LARGO DI TORRE ARGENTINA

This archaeological wonder was excavated as part of Mussolini’s rebuilding efforts in 1929, revealing four Republican victory-temples that lie sunken 20 feet below modern street level. One of the city’s most iconic sights, the square contains part of the famous portico of Pompey, upon whose steps dictator Julius Caesar was betrayed and killed in 44 BC.
