CCR Walks: The Palatine and its Palaces - October 2, 2022

Despite the fact they lived over two thousand years ago, upper-class Romans of the late Republic still loom larger than life. On this tour, we uncover their splendid yet extremely uncomfortable Palatine and Forum mansions and meet their quarrelsome, fastidious, and absurdly wealthy owners and neighbours, wives, lovers, friends, and enemies. Their stories and the way they acquired and retained wealth provide (useful?) insight into the context within which a new Imperial regime rose to power.

Time: 2 p.m.
Meeting Place: Monti area. Confirmed participants will be informed by email of the exact meeting point.
