We stayed at the 47 Hotel and were lucky to have a view of this ancient well preserved 2300 year old temple from our balcony daily during our 12 day stay in Rome. The area is safe to walk around during late hours as well....More

It might be a bit of a side tracked, but it's pretty close to some other amazing things. Make sure you also see Hercules Victor in the same intersection and circus Maximus around the corner!

The Tempio di Portuno has been standing for a very long time and a main reason that it's in rather good shape is that it was turned into a church which ensured its longevity. It is worth visiting, but you can only see it from...More

There always seems to be scaffolding on some part of this temple whenever I visit it. "Visit" is not the accurate word, because you can't go in---you can view it only from the outside. Also, there's an iron gate around it (to prevent vandalism, probably)....More

Aventine
