I visited Rome recently and did an audio tour through the Colosseum and Roman Forum archeological sites. In the Roman Forum there is the remains of the Temple of Caesar, where Julius Caesar was cremated.
Here is a photo of the site from my visit:
As you can see, there are flowers that have been recently placed at the site, and apparently they are regularly placed there. My question is, why? He died so long ago that surely no one has any close connection to him, though I know he was deified, so perhaps there are some that still worship him?
Or is it perhaps just organised by the staff at the Roman Forum as a tourist attraction? All I've been able to find on the internet is that there is fresh flowers there all year around, which makes it seem strange someone would pay to enter every day to lay them there.
Can anyone shed some light?
