If you happen to be in Italy, you might want to get your cat fix by visiting Largo di Torre Argentina, an archaeological wonder that consists of multi-level temples that lie sunken 20 feet below modern street level. Besides several different temples, Torre Argentina also contains part of the famous Theater of Pompey where dictator Julius Caesar was betrayed and killed in 44 BCE.

Besides the historical significance of the ruins, a second reason to visit this site is that it’s become home to a colony of feral cats. Volunteers spay and neuter the cats to keep their population in check, but if you want to capture pictures of ancient ruins with cats lounging about, then Torre Argentina should be the first place you should go.
