A Tourist in Rome - Tomb of the Scipios

Location:41.87572, 12.50042 Via di Porta San Sebastiano 9
Metro:Circo Massimo

The Tomb of the Scipios was the tomb of the family with the last name of Scipio during the Roman Republic, from the 3rd century BC to the early part of the 1st century AD. The most famous of that family, Scipio Africanus, the man who defeated Hannibal's invasion of Italy after Hannibal had crossed the Alps during winter with his army and war elephants, is not buried here. Unfortunately, when I arrived at the entrance at Via di Porta San Sebastiano 9, the site was closed because of some lame excuse about construction on the road behind the site. I was very disappointed and rather angry. That was my second closed site that morning.
