In the Augusteum, a temple dedicated to the first Roman Emperor Octavian Augustus, one is able to learn about the cult to the emperor, the theatrical pomp and the displays of great wealth and prestige devised by the priests. As a means of spreading the imperial ideology, it relied on a great decorative richness, as is evidenced by the quarried marble floors, marking the splendour of a bygone era.


When close to the Forum, one can explore this meeting and market place dating from Roman times, which was an important religious, administrative, political and economic centre.
