Caesar’s Grave

Where is Julius Caesar buried?

Right in the Roman Forum.

To be more accurate, the grave site actually marks the ruins of the Temple of Caesar. Caesar was cremated and thus has no grave or tomb, but people still leave flowers and notes on the altar.

It’s easy to miss if you’re exploring the Foro Romano alone because it’s located behind a low wall. ┬áKeep an eye out for it next time you visit Rome!

    That’s like a classic Italian historic site. Not just because it has unbelievable history, but because modern Italians are apparently so used to it being there that they don’t take any particular care of it. Or make a big deal out of it.

    Have you ever seen Napoleon’s tomb? I know he died a little more recently, but my God – that is like the craziest 7-part casket-tomb of all time. King Tut is rolling over in his sarcophagus, he’s so jealous.
