Roman Cat Sanctuary - Review

Moving on from the more contemporary tourist destinations that are commonly associated with this majestic city, let’s take a look at those places that are not included in the tourist guide. The Roman Cat Sanctuary in the Largo di Torre Argentina excavation site is quite an unusual place to visit while in Rome.

An interesting piece of trivia is that over three hundred thousand cats have found their home in the city. A lot of these stray cats can be found in the Torre Argentina excavation site. Here, the locals indulge in taking care of the cats.

Tourists can visit this location to see a truly wonderful sight where the citizens of Rome and enthusiastic visitors can mingle with these cats, play with them, feed them and spend a lazy afternoon in the midst of these furry animals.

Roman Cat Sanctuary, Rome Reviews

  • The historical site is nice, but what this place really has going for it is its care for stray cats. The people here take in stray cats that they find around the city, vaccinate them, give them appropriate medical treatment, and care for them. Most of the cats that they care for are special needs, and they have an entire separate section for cats with vision problems, many of which are also available for adoption. Its a very wholesome and caring environment where you feel that the cats are happy and treated very well.

  • A hidden gem in Rome, especially for visitors who are missing their meows at home. Try to go when the underground sanctuary is open to learn more about this smart and thoughtful system they’ve come up with where everyone wins. But any time of the day you can stop by and watch happy cats sleeping, stalking each other, and chasing butterflies in this dream playground of Roman relics.

  • Really great site that doesn't get too crowded. It is hilarious because there is a huge wild cat colony in the ruin. They climb all over it. Also close to other must see areas. Plus it visually is the location of the assassination of Julius Caesar.

  • A large square with at the center finds of ancient Rome. Looking south to the right the famous Teatro Argentina. Place where there are notable theatrical activities and shows. The square is the place where Caesar was killed. Within the historical area there is an association that deals with cats that can be taken for adoption. Healthy and vaccinated cats. Nerve point of exchange of various and numerous day and night bus lines.

  • Cat santuary within ancient Roman ruins. Also the site of Julius Caesars murder. There is a place on site down some steps where you can purchase items to help support the care of these feral cats. The organization feeds and provides medical care for all cats on site. The have a catch, spay/neuter and release type program. They do keep injured cats inside at all times that are not healthy enough to live outside. It is a little smelly inside their base of care but worth the visit. You can adopt cats from a distance which means you choose a cat and pay $15 euro a month to help care for it and it is possible to adopt the cats to return home with you but they have a strict policy and review process. They tell you all about the cats they house and you can go in and pet them. There are a couple social ones that sit just outside the protected area that you can pet as well but most are inside.
