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.
