Our next step will be the Mouth of Truth. Your tour guide will be your storyteller and you’ll learn the legends and anecdotes of an ancient past, when in that area there was the Temple of Hercules! Once again we will enter the undiscovered world underneath the modern Rome to see what remains of the stunning altar.
