Architect Richard Meier's Ara Pacis Museum is the only major contemporary structure to have been built in the historic center of Rome since World War II.

If you were living in Rome 2,000 years ago, you would now be very, very old. But also importantly: you would've been alive during the time of Augustus, the first Roman Emperor (and grand-nephew of Julius Caesar).

His reign ushered in a period known as the Pax Romana (The Roman Peace) a two-century long period when the Roman Empire was largely free from large-scale conflict.

The Ara Pacis ('Altar of Peace') was Augustus's way of declaring his commitment to peace. See the 'Altar of Peace', originally inaugurated in 9 BC and then buried for centuries, plus loads more as you walk right into living history.

Insider tip

Nearby Gusto (Piazza Augusto Imperatore 9) does a pretty fantastic aperitivo. Head there and get a faceful of delicious Italian snacks to go with your sunset wine.

Absolutely phenomenal! I’m a massive history nut and fan of Augustus and was so excited to see the Ara Pacis. The artefacts and information presented before the Ara Pacis were very insightful. I honestly felt that I learnt more from visiting this museum than I do studying a semester of Augustan history at university.

Lovely Roman attraction. The booking process and how you get your smartphone on your voucher are really easy and clear to use.
Super happy customer!
