The Lazio region

The Pyramid of Caius Cestius was built around 12 BC by praetor Caius Cestius as his tomb. The pyramid was later integrated into the Aurelian Wall, which helped its preservation.

Caius Cestius Epulonius, a rich praetor (an elected magistrate) and member of a group of priests responsible for sacred banquets died in 12 BC. Caius Cestius is now best known for his tomb, modeled on Egyptian pyramids.

The pyramid, which was constructed in a mere 330 days, is more than 36 meters high and 29.5 meters wide (118 x 97ft). It was built of concrete and brick on a travertine foundation and covered with Carrara marble blocks. Thanks to the use of concrete it was possible to build a pyramid with a sharper angle - and relatively taller - than those in Egypt.

On the east and west sides are inscriptions with the names and titles of Caius Cestius. A corridor at the northern side led to the burial chamber. The walls of the rectangular chamber, which measured 6 by 4 meters (20 x 13ft), were decorated sumptuously with frescoes and panels framing female figures.

The pyramid was originally surrounded by four columns and the entrance was flanked by two bronze figures, now on display in the Musei Capitolini at the Capitoline Square.

While the interior is badly preserved the exterior has survived relatively well thanks to the incorporation of the pyramid into the Aurelian wall in 275 BC. Its marble casing was restored in the 12th century.

The Pyramid of Caius Cestius can be found at the southern edge of ancient Rome, near the Porta San Paolo, part of the Aurelian Wall. The subway station 'Pyramide' is right across the square.

No words about Rome...

Rome

Testaccio is the 20th rione of Rome, deriving its name from Monte Testaccio. In antiquity, much of the Tiber River trade took place here, and the remains of broken clay vessels (amphorae) were stacked creating the artificial Testaccio hill, which today is a source of much archeological evidence as to the history of ancient everyday Roman life. The rione seal depicts one of these amphorae. In modern times, the area has been a center of activity for butchers. Testaccio was one of Rome's traditional working class neighbourhoods, but the recent process of gentrification has changed its reputation from hard-at-work to "hipster". The neighborhood is home to several of Rome's culinary highlights. Testaccio's reputation among tourists is expanding

Foodies like Testaccio because of the traditions surrounding the Roman cuisine of the stockyard workers. This means offal will be served in local restaurants, as workers were given these pieces at the end of the day and they (or most likely their wives and mothers) learned to cook them into tasty meals. But it's not all innards in Testaccio. The covered market is as lively as it can get, even without the throngs of tourists that flock to better-known markets in Rome. La Città dell'Altra Economia will educate you in fair trade practices and ply you with international organic food at the same time. Upon Monte Testaccio, Testaccio's potsherd hill, Rome's car repairmen had dug out caves in the hill for their repair shops. Today those caves have been transformed into sometimes lavish night clubs and wine bars. It's where Rome's beautiful people go to exercise their dolce vita.
