We've walked through the Basilica of Constantine, then the Arch of Titus and now find ourselves at the Temple of Julius Caesar... located smack down in the Roman Forum's Main Square. Caesar's (100-44 B.C.) body was burned on this spot after his assassination.

"...Emperor Augustus dedicated this temple in his name, making Caesar the first Roman to become a god." (Affiliate Link) p. 109 Rick Steves’ Rome

The Roman Forum's Main Square

The heat was pretty intense... an umbrella, lots of water and finding shady spots to rest is highly recommended. There wasn't much of a breeze here on this August day.
