The House of Augustus, or the Domus Augusti, is the first major site upon entering the Palatine Hill in Rome, Italy. Historically, this house has been identified as the primary place of residence for the emperor Augustus. The Domus Augusti is located near the so-called Hut of Romulus and other sites that have connections to the foundation of Rome. This residence contained a complex of structures that were situated around the Temple of Apollo Palatinus.Arrange your visit to House of Augustus and discover more family-friendly attractions in Rome using our Rome planner.

House of Augustus Reviews
Loved it! The super ticket makes the difference. There are some multimedia helping to explain the painted walls
Not happy that nobody told us about super ticket in advance. We made it all the way there to see it And we were not allowed. When I came to Italy a few years ago it was not open also there was no thing such as the super ticket
