CCR Walks with Olivia: Insula Ara Coeli - March 16, 2014

Special permission secured for access to Insula Ara Coeli. 

During this walk we'll be inspecting one of those monuments we all walk past, but never really “see”: the ruins of a three-floor “insula” -- or ancient Roman apartment block -- nestled between the Monument to Victor Emmanuel in Piazza Venezia and the Medieval stairway leading to Santa Maria Ara Coeli. We then take a walk in the area looking at other landmarks charting the area’s long history.
