Map of the area

The Campus Agrippae is the area within the boundaries of ancient Rome named after Marcus Vipsanius Agrippa. A number of construction projects were developed within its perimeters, including the Porticus Vipsania, built by his sister, Vipsania Polla, and finished by Augustus,[1] which ran along the western perimeter, against the Via Lata. There was also a race course. In 7 BCE, Augustus declared the Campus open to the public.
