A lot of Rome’s history can be attributed to its first emperor Augustus, who was responsible for building major infrastructure, giving the Romans a stable monetary system, and making Rome a monumental city. Among his list of contributions is also the world’s largest circular tomb that Augustus had built for himself after his victory in war, known today as the Mausoleum of Augustus.
Apart from being the final resting place of many important Roman emperors, it also houses the remains of other members of the royal family
The mausoleum was a grand structure in its time, and its design influenced the construction of other famous buildings in Rome.
The Mausoleum of Augustus underwent an extensive restoration process in recent years, which has made it more accessible and safer for visitors to explore.
