The tour of the Noble Pharmaceutical College is something particular, usually not known by the visitors of the Romanum Forum. The Collegio is housed inside the old temple of Antoninus and Faustina, adapted as a Roman Catholic church, namely, the Chiesa di San Lorenzo in Miranda or simply “San Lorenzo in Miranda”. It is in the Forum Romanum, on the Via Sacra, opposite the Regia. The visit is private and includes also the museum of pharmacy history and the library consisting of a thousand ancient scientific manuscripts, whose restoration is financed by the ticket contribution.

Close to the Noble Pharmaceutical College , it takes place the ancient Roman Forum. Before becoming the political, administrative and religious centre of Rome, the Forum was an inhospitable marshland.
