Forum - Foro, Pompeii: 37 reviews and 89 photos

  The Forum
by sswagner

The Forum is the political and religious center of the city. The remains of the Temple of Jove (Jupiter) are easily visible in the open area. Naturally, this area was a popular gathering place. It was also the heart of commerce in Pompei. There are many columns, colonnades, temple remains, and some arches in this area. Vesuvius looms in the background as a reminder of the sudden death of this civilization.
