From the age of 19, as the Res Gestae tells us, Augustus dedicated his life to improving the Roman Empire; retrace his achievements and uncover the remains of his legacy. As the old saying goes, Rome was not built in a day, but how much did Augustus really contribute to this? Stand in the Roman Forum in which he reigned supreme, and be taken back to the political, military and social centre of the ancient world. Visit the Palatine Hill where the Temple of Apollo once dominated the skyline and journey to Ostia Antica, the once bustling port.

Emma D and Emma W were very helpful at putting together the tour at comparatively short notice and fitting in the visits to suit the different needs of the students. Having worked with them before I knew what to expect and was confident that all would be in place for the trip.
