Lonely Planet review

This mausoleum was built in 28 BC and is the last resting place of Augustus, who was buried here in AD 14, and his favourite nephew and heir Marcellus. Mussolini had it restored in 1936 with an eye to being buried here himself.

Once one of Ancient Rome’s most imposing monuments, it's now an unkempt mound of earth, smelly and surrounded by unsightly fences. Work is apparently ongoing, though it's proceeding at a slow pace.
