The roman forum

For centuries, the Roman Forum was a marshy and unpleasant gully that the Romans used as a cemetery. The Etruscan kings finally drained it and the resulting space became used for public events. Walking through the forum is like being in a movie. You expect to see a victorious Caesar arriving through the triumphal arch to a cheering crowd. The Temple of Vesta, Trajan’s column, and the Mamertine Prison are also unforgettable.

On Sundays, they close the Via dei Fori Imperiali, the street which runs from the Forum to the Colosseum. Romans love to go for a walk in the area and it’s the perfect chance for tourists to explore and take photos of this amazing area without having to worry about the traffic. I’d recommend going on Sundays.

You can imagine what it was like

This is one of the spots where the Romans developed their social life. Located near the Colosseum, the Roman Forum is a ruined landscape which shows the magnificence of what was long ago. Anyway, you can have a nice walk through the rubble and imagine what this impressive complex of buildings was like in its heyday. It is certainly worth buying the pamphlets explaining the buildings as they were before, and how they are now.

The forum hosts Temple of Romulus, Castor and Pollux, Saturn, Tito, Vespartino, Venus,and the Temple of Vesta. You will also have the chance to check out the Basilica of Maxentius, Basilica Aemilia, the arches of Titus and Septimius Severus, as well as a multitude of other important buildings.

The nerve center of ancient rome

The remains of the Roman Forum are a testament to the once-grandiose capital of Imperial Rome. Today, the ruins are only crumbling relics but they hold an incalculable historic value. This was the nerve center of ancient Rome where they held all kinds of political, economic and social events. It’s located in a tourist area but it’s never too crowded for you to have a nice stroll through the ruins and, with a little imagination, find yourself in the city of a millennium ago. It’s a must-see when you’re in Rome.

Gigantic

The visit follows the Palatine and various other remains but I wanted to separate them. It's really impressive to visit, everything worked marble leaves imagined the beauty of these buildings. It feels tiny next to some buildings, they really had delusions of grandeur. I do not know the size of the forum but it takes several hours to visit the Palatine was the spend 4 hours. This is my favorite place (the Colosseum) because it shows the history of Rome. Following this visit, I invested in a book where I could find the reconstitution of the forum, even though much has been preserved, everything was mostly destroyed. The statues are never whole, often missing limbs (legs, hands, arms, feet or heads), it's pretty weird when you see the rest of the body is rather well preserved. Mutilation or lack of conservation, that is the question? It is a place not to be overlooked in his stay in Rome. The video of the visit of the forum is currently editing, available soon!

Gigantesque

La visite se suit avec le Palatin et divers autres vestiges mais je voulais les séparer. C’est vraiment impressionnant de le visiter, tous ce marbre travaillé laisse imaginé la beauté de ces constructions. On se sent minuscule à coté de certains édifices, ils avaient vraiment la folie des grandeurs. Je ne connais la superficie du forum mais cela prend plusieurs heures à visiter, avec le Palatin, on a du y passer 4 heures.

C’est l’endroit que je préfère (avec le Colisée) parce qu’il montre bien l’histoire de Rome. Suite à cette visite, j’ai investis dans un livre ou j’ai pu découvrir la reconstitution du forum, même si beaucoup de choses ont été conservé, tout a été principalement détruit. Les statues sont jamais entières, il manque souvent des membres (jambes, mains, bras, pieds ou têtes), c’est assez bizarre quand on voit que le reste du corps est plutôt bien conservé. Mutilation ou manque de conservation, tel est la question ?

C’est un lieu à ne pas négliger dans son séjour à Rome.

La vidéo de la visite du forum est actuellement en montage, disponible prochainement !

As you can see, the city of Rome is full of various archaeological remains dating back to the Roman Empire, but retained by the relatively mild climate of this region, and by the maintenance. These sites are no longer accessible to the public itself, it can not touch the stones or bows, but you can admire while walking in the street, at the corner of an intersection or of a building! They sprout like that, and we can thus imagine the ancient architecture of the time, which is pretty impressive! Not far from the Colosseum, a superb Arc is extremely well preserved (still smaller than our French Arc de Triomphe!) And "Forum" Roman is also very well preserved. Various columns out of nowhere, but reflect the taste of the Romans to the various palaces, held by such columns. Some remains have been attacked by wild cats of the city, running around in these "natural attractions" and finds refuge for the night.

Comme vous pourrez le voir, la ville de Rome regorge de vestiges archéologiques divers, datant de l’Empire Romain, mais bien conservés par le climat plutôt doux de cette région, et par l’entretien réalisé. Ces sites ne sont plus accessibles au public à proprement parler, on ne peut plus toucher ces pierres ou arcs, mais on peut les admirer en se promenant en pleine rue, au détour d’un carrefour ou d’un immeuble ! Ils sortent de terre comme ça, et on peut ainsi s’imaginer l’architecture antique de l’époque, ce qui est assez impressionnant !
Non loin du Colisée, un Arc superbe est extrêmement bien conservé (plus petit tout de même que notre Arc de Triomphe français !), et le « Forum » romain est lui aussi très bien conservé. Des colonnes diverses sortent de nulle part, mais témoignent du goût des Romains pour les palais divers, tenus par ce type de colonnes. Certains vestiges ont été pris d’assaut par les chats sauvages de la ville, qui se baladent dans ces « attractions naturelles », et y trouve refuge pour la nuit.

Foro romano

Also Foro Romano call or Forum Magnum, the Roman Forum is nestled among the hills of the Palatine and the Capitol, in the heart of the district of ancient Rome. This is a very vast forum, which included at that time the political and commercial activity in the city. C'tait the example clbrs qu'taient public events, weddings, gladiatorial games and even some religious feasts. The Roman Forum is still well preserved and his visit helps to realize the strategic importance of the place at the time.

Foro romano

Egalement appelé Foro Romano ou Forum Magnum, le forum romain est niché entre les collines du Palatin et du Capitole, en plein cœur du quartier de la Rome antique. Il s'agit d'un très vaste forum, qui regroupait à cette époque l'activité politique et commerciale de la ville. C'était là par exemple qu'étaient célébrés les évènements publics, les mariages, les jeux de gladiateurs et même certaines fêtes religieuses. Le forum romain est encore bien conservé et sa visite permet de se rendre compte de l'importance stratégique du lieu à l'époque.

Les forums impériaux sont sans aucun doute l'un des temps forts de la découverte de la capitale romaine. Il s'agit d'un ensemble de grandes places antiques, occupant une vaste zone proche de la Piazza Venezia. Leur construction aurait été débutée au 1er siècle avant Jésus Christ et aurait duré près de deux siècles. Dans ce quartier se concentrait l'activité politique, à l'époque de la Rome antique. On peut y admirer notamment le forum romain, le forum de Trajan, celui d'Auguste et celui de César. Une très belle découverte historique à ne pas manquer.

I regularly travel to Rome because I have family. At each visit, I can not help but go through the Imperial Forums by accessing the Piazza Venezia and climbing ramp Piazza Campidoglio on top of which you can see the statues of the Dioscuri, Castor and Pollux and the Marc Aurelius. It is bypassing the Piazza Campidoglio on the right you can see the ruins, which suggest the magnitude of Forums. In the distance, the Colosseum, astonishment kept overlooks columns, churches and other relics of antiquity.

Je voyage régulièrement à Rome car j'y ai de la famille. A chaque visite, je ne peux m'empêcher de passer par les forums impériaux en y accédant par la Piazza Venezia et en montant la rampe de Piazza Campidoglio en haut de laquelle on peut admirer les statues des Dioscures, Castor et Pollux et de Marc Aurèle. C'est en contournant la Piazza Campidoglio par la droite qu'on peut apercevoir les ruines, qui laissent entrevoir la grandeur des Forums. Au loin, le Colisée, étonnement conservé, surplombe les colonnes, églises et autres vestiges de l'antiquité.

The Roman Forum is a vast area consists of ruins from the Roman era, space between the Capitol and the Coliseum. When "ruins" they say we should not expect to see a few "pebbles". This is really huge and you can imagine without much difficulty the old buildings and how life was like in this place. You should also know that the forums were architectural complexes usually for wealthy people, always with at least one temple, art, school, shops and galleries sometimes a library. The price of admission includes a tour of the Forum and the Coliseum (note that you can also see a part of the forum for free along the via dei fori imperiali).

Le forum romain, c'est un vaste espace constitué de ruines de l'époque romaine, espace situé entre le Capitole et le Colisée. Quand on dit "ruines" il ne faut pas s'attendre à voir seulement quelques "cailloux". C'est en réalité gigantesque et on imagine sans trop de difficultés les anciennes bâtisses et la façon dont la vie se déroulait dans ce lieu.
Il faut également savoir que les forums étaient des complexes architecturaux généralement pour personnes aisées, avec toujours au moins un temple, des galeries d'art, une école, des magasins et parfois une bibliothèque.

Le prix d'entrée comprend la visite du forum et celle du Colisée (sachez que vous pouvez aussi voir une partie du forum gratuitement en longeant la via dei fori imperiali).

The vision of the Roman Forum from the top is so striking, as is walking among the ruins. FORUM The name refers to a spacious, outdoor rectangular, located in the central part of a city, a public place where took place the People's Assembly. In the early days the forums were places without buildings but then were transformed into place to mingle and administrative public buildings with the most important temples. So too was the history of the Roman Forum is located between the hills of the Palatine and the Capitol and the Quirinal Hill. Even today, even in ruins, you can see from above, the magnificence that had such emprendimientp.

La visión del FORO ROMANO desde lo alto es tan impactante, como lo es también caminar entre sus ruinas.
El nombre FORO hace referencia a un espacio amplio, al aire libre, rectangular, ubicado en la parte central de una ciudad,un lugar público adonde tenía lugar la ASAMBLEA del PUEBLO.
En los primeros tiempos los foros eran lugares sin construcciones pero luego se fueron transformando en lugar en el que alternaban los EDIFICIOS PUBLICOS y ADMINISTRATIVOS con los TEMPLOS más importantes.
Así también fue la historia del FORO ROMANO, situado entre las COLINAS del PALATINO y del CAPITOLIO y la COLINA del QUIRINAL.
Aun hoy, aunque en ruinas, se puede apreciar desde lo alto, la magnificencia que tuvo tal emprendimientp.

If you walk along the Via dei Fori Imperiali you can see both sides of the road the remains of Trajan's Forum, the Forum of Augustus and the Forum of Nerva and near the end of the right side you come to the entrance of the Roman Forum. If you have the Roma Pass does not have to wait in line. Within the Forum you can visit, among others, the Arch of Titus, basilicas, temples, the Curia of the Senate, the speaker's or the House of the Vestals.

Si camináis por la Vía dei Fori Imperiali podéis observar a ambos lados de la calzada los restos del Foro de Trajano, el Foro de Augusto y el Foro de Nerva y casi al final del lado derecho llegáis hasta la entrada del Foro Romano.

Si tenéis la Roma Pass no tenéis que esperar colas. Dentro del Foro podréis visitar, entre otros, el Arco de Tito, las basílicas, los templos, la Curia del Senado, la Tribuna de oradores o la Casa de las Vestales.

Remains of an empire

The tour of the Roman Forum is coupled with that of the Palatine and is a staple of the ancient history of Rome. It is difficult to understand the significance of the place when you see the ruins, pieces of columns, registration ends here and there ... Before it was space majestic temples, the heart of business it is difficult to represent. But you walk in history and it is superb. The view of the surrounding monuments, the Colosseum, the Palatine, we're really immersed in the ancient city.

Vestiges d'un empire

La visite du Forum Romain se couple avec celle du Palatin et est un incontournable de l'histoire antique de Rome. C'est difficile de comprendre l'importance du lieu quand on voit les ruines, les morceaux de colonnes, les bouts d'inscription par ci par là...Avant c'était l'espace de temples majestueux, le coeur des affaires, il est difficile de se le représenter.
Mais on se promène dans l'histoire et c'est superbe. La vue sur les monuments alentours, sur le Colisée, sur le Palatin, on est vraiment baigné dans la ville antique.

A walk through the Roman Forum and the Coliseum area nearby. In these pictures you can see different monumental temples. An immersion in ancient Rome. An awesome feeling goes through you as you walk through these old roads to try to recreate the old Roman imagination to walk by them. A must see. Must be seen at least once in life.

Un paseo por el Foro Romano y la cercana zona del Coliseo. En estas fotos se pueden ver diferentes templos monumentales. Una inmersión en la antigua roma. Una sensación impresionante te recorre al pasear por esas viejas calzadas al intentar recrear con la imaginación a los antiguas romanos caminando por ellas. De obligada visita. Hay que verlo al menos una vez en la vida.

A treat for the eyes and imagination

The Roman Forum is the place of Europe's full of history. A single visit for lovers of Roman art, despite the passage of time and weather have taken their toll on him. Still, it is possible to imagine the splendor and beauty of what was once here. Today, work continues on the recovery and restoration of these excavations. Walking through the Forum is a pleasure to behold and, above all, to the imagination, if not for the body, because of the enormous heat that makes Rome in the summer when I visited ...

Un placer para la vista y la imaginación

El Foro Romano es el lugar de Europa más repleto de historia. Una visita única para los amantes del arte romano, a pesar de que el paso del tiempo y las inclemencias meteorológicas han hecho mella en él. Aun así, es posible imaginar el esplendor y la belleza de lo que en otro tiempo fue este lugar.

Hoy en día, continúan los trabajos de recuperación y restauración de estas excavaciones.

Pasear por el Foro es un placer para la vista y, sobre todo, para la imaginación, aunque no tanto para el cuerpo, debido al enorme calor que hace en Roma en verano, cuando yo lo visité...

Hard to believe how can a place in ruins and abandoned voted for 1000 years has been the symbol of civic pride. There are more than 3000 years where today is the Roman Forum was a swampy cemetery that gave rise to the first village of Palatine. Stands in the Roman Forum Arch of Septimus Severus, the Temple of Vesta and House of the Vestal Virgins, the Curia, the Temple of Castor and Pollux, the Arch of Titus, the Basilica of Maxentius and Constantine, the Temple of Vespasian, the Via Sacra, the Temple of Saturn and Temple of Antoninus and Faustina. The ticket allows Coliseum conjunction with the visit. I loved visiting the Roman Forum.

Custa acreditar como é possível que um local em ruínas e votado ao abandono tenha sido durante 1000 anos o símbolo do orgulho cívico. Há mais de 3000 anos o local onde é hoje o Fórum Romano era um cemitério pantanoso que dava lugar à primeira aldeia do Monte Palatino. Destaca-se no Fórum Romano o Arco de Sétimo Severo, o Templo de Vesta e Casa das Virgens Vestais, a Cúria, o Templo de Castor e Pólux, o Arco de Tito, a Basílica de Maxêncio e Constantino, o Templo de Vespasiano, a Via Sacra, o Templo de Saturno e o Templo de Antonino e Faustina. O bilhete conjunto com o Coliseu permite a visita. Adorei ter visitado o Fórum Romano.
